Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Windham, ME

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. A good way to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Windham, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Get started with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. 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 begin your Windham home buying journey is with a healthy credit history, a good handle on your current expenses, and enough savings for a minimum 20% down payment.

Now, let's put some real numbers down. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can calculate how much house you can afford in Windham based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Windham home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If it's not, think about looking in surrounding areas or increasing your down payment. If it will, then move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

It's time to prequalify for a home in Windham. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's the result of some financial details you provide and a credit check. Prequalification is also a chance to learn about your mortgage options and work with your lender to find the right fit. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you’re looking to buy a home in Windham, 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. Type in your likely purchase price and down payment. Follow that information with a few personal details and you're almost prequalified. The process is simple and your prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Windham, factor in your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and looking for the perfect home in Windham can be time-consuming. Turn to a real estate agent in Windham who does the bulk of the work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Windham and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Give it a try.
