How much can I afford to borrow?
The calculator below will help you find an estimated loan amount that you could qualify for. This formula takes into account how much debt you currently have. Some lenders consider this a conservative formula, and you may qualify for more. It does not take into account your credit score. Expenses, such as gas, food, utilities, estimated taxes, etc. are not part of the formula. It is just to give you an idea of how much debt you could comfortably carry given your current finances.
