Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Biddeford, ME

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. One of the best ways to make that happen is to be financially prepared for your home purchase before you set foot in an open house. Know when it might be better to wait until your situation improves and when you're in a financially strong enough position to buy a home in Biddeford. Get started with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. What are your general thoughts about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A good way to start your Biddeford home buying journey is with confidence, a strong credit history, enough savings for a down payment, and a good handle on your current expenses.

Now, let's play with some real numbers. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Biddeford based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this price range get you into the Biddeford home you've been dreaming about? If not, consider buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Biddeford. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's based on some financial information you provide and a credit check. Prequalification is also an opportunity to learn more about your various mortgage options and determine which one is right for you. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you’re looking to buy a home in Biddeford, the type of property you’d like to buy, how you plan on using the property, and if you’re currently working with a real estate agent. Enter your expected purchase price and down payment. Provide a few more personal details and you're clicks away from being prequalified. The process is simple and your prequalification lasts 120 days.

Don't forget to budget your time when doing the math on how you can afford to buy a house in Biddeford. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and finding your perfect house can be time-consuming, especially in Biddeford. Turn to a real estate agent in Biddeford who does the bulk of the work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Biddeford and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Try it!
