Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Goodyear, AZ

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. A great way to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand.

A little "gut check" can go a long way.

Now, let's "put pencil to paper," as they say. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Goodyear based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this price range get you into the Goodyear home you've been dreaming about? If not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. If it will, then move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!
