Should I decrease my 401(k) contributions to be able to afford a more expensive mortgage?
100% of people found this answer helpful

Do you have any additional debts (credit card, car loans, student loans, etc?) If so you are better off paying those debts off before you think about purchasing a home. But let's assume you're debt-free. You don't HAVE to have a mortgage that is 30-35% of your net pay. In fact, the goal eventually should be near 0% (paid off!) My opinion is that it would be more irresponsible to purchase a home with other debts, or purchasing more home than you can afford, than it would be to suspend 401(k) contributions for a short time to save up a larger down payment.
