Ready to get into the housing market? It all starts with finding out how much you can actually afford. That’s where our mortgage qualifier calculator comes in. Simply answer some questions about income, purchase price, or total monthly payment to discover how much you’re able to borrow—no guesswork necessary!
Using the Texas First Bank mortgage application, you can get pre-qualified or pre-approved even before you start looking for a home.
This way, you’ll have a good idea of what loan amount you qualify for, and you can narrow your list of homes down to the ones in your price range. Plus, once you’ve found a home, having a pre-qualification or pre-approval usually improves your chances of getting the home because credit challenges are usually identified and resolved up front.

Prequalification is a review of your overall financial picture, including an overview of your credit report. It’s free and quick. You usually do not submit any documents for this process, so it doesn’t provide a guarantee of financing. It is, however, an important step in the home-buying process because it allows you to get the conversation started with a mortgage lender so you can know what the options are for your specific situation. Preapproval is the step after prequalification. It’s more involved, but if you have a little more time at the beginning of the process, we recommend you go through the steps. For a preapproval, you’ll start the formal application process by providing documentation to verify your income and assets, as well as allowing the lender to do a more extensive check into your financial background and credit rating. This results in you getting preapproved for a more specific amount and interest rate. You’ll also be able to move faster when you find the home you want because the seller will know you’re one step closer to getting an actual mortgage and you’ve already gotten a lot of paperwork out of the way.

Conventional Loans: Ideal for borrowers with strong credit, stable income and employment, and a down payment of at least 3%.
The most common conventional loans are Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FHLMC). They are not insured or guaranteed by the federal government, so mortgage insurance is not typically required unless you put less than 20% down. Overall, the borrowing costs tend to be lower even if the interest rates are slightly higher.
Jumbo Loans: Ideal for buyers purchasing high-end homes. Buyers typically have excellent credit, higher than average income, liquidity down payment of at least 20%. Subject to change.
These are conventional loans that exceed the loan limits of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Borrowers can qualify for loans up to $3 million on their primary residence and $2 million on their second homes or investment properties. Interest rates are usually competitive with a conventional loan.
Government Loans: Ideal for those with low cash savings, not-so-great credit, or who don’t qualify for conventional loans.
Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Loans: FHA Loans are managed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and are available to all types of borrowers, not just first-time home buyers. There are fixed and adjustable rate options, making them ideal for those who don’t have a large down payment or pristine credit. Down payments for FHA loans can be as low as 3.5% of the purchase price if your credit score is higher than 580.
Veteran Affairs (VA) Loans: VA Loans are managed by the US Department of Veteran Affairs and are ideal for active duty military or veterans. Qualified borrowers can receive 100% financing for the purchase of a home. Interest rates are typically low and fixed, and a minimum credit score of 620 is required. Fees are usually capped or rolled into these loans too.
US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Loans: USDA loans are available for homes in USDA-eligible areas for moderate to low-income rural borrowers that meet certain income requirements. Qualified borrowers may be eligible for no down payment and low, fixed rates.
All loans subject to credit approval.
1 $0 down options available for qualified buyers on certain types of mortgages. Please ask a representative for more information.
