Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. One of the best ways to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Selma, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. How do you feel about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A little "gut check" can go a long way. The best way to start your Selma home buying journey is with adequate savings for a down payment, a strong credit history, and a good grasp on your everyday expenses.

Now, let's put some real numbers down. Plug in some numbers to Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator and see where you (and your budget) stand. You can calculate how much house you can afford in Selma based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this number get you into the Selma home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If not, think about increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas.
