How much mortgage can I get approved for ?

I am a newbie to the mortgage approval process. However I am trying to gain some knowledge before i go for homebuying process. I would like to know what you think I should be preapproved for based on some of the below stats :

 

Annual Gross Income : $78K

Duration : 5 yrs same employer

Retirement Savings : 50K

Downpayment : $12500 -15K

Credit : 711(EX), 689(EQ), 700(TU) based on myfico

 

How much should I be approved or qualified for incase of a 30yr fixed?

How do they comeout with what % of front and back load they will apply ?

With 5% down and conventional financing, your max sales price could be about $260k'ish - you can increase that to around $290k by paying a single premium PMI instead of a monthly amount, but that increases your "funds to close" or interest rate.  With FHA and 3.5% down, your max sales price could be about $280k'ish (max FHA loan amount in Mclean County, IL is $271,050... but you can always buy a higher sales price and put down the additional difference).
