Ready to lay down some roots and buy a house in Calverton? Great idea! You've chosen a colorful city with a dynamic selection of educational opportunities, businesses, and parks, and we're here to help make your home purchase and move a little easier. We serve 3.8 million customers across the country and are familiar with the ins-and-outs of the Calverton housing market.

Given all of Maryland's growth, Calverton homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Continued cultural expansion and economic growth have helped to entice young families, new businesses, and retirees to the Calverton area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. Despite this, Calverton and its nearby areas still offer a variety of home types and prices. You can find duplexes, single-family homes, townhomes, condos, and (ideally) your dream house! When looking to buy a house in Calverton, consider how near or far away the home is from the places you visit most. If possible, drive the route you'd take from the house to your school, office, and favorite hangout spot. Your house's location will affect everything, from your morning routine to how you spend your evenings. Traveling around Calverton will also give you an idea of why homes in west Calverton are priced differently than homes in east Calverton, where to find Calverton's most popular attractions, and what the neighborhoods are like.

You're ready to buy a house in Calverton, but is your bank account? Contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you're unsure of your answer. We believe in keeping the dream of homeownership alive and work to make the journey less worrisome and more rewarding every step of the way. It doesn't matter whether you want to buy a home in Maryland or somewhere else entirely. We help experienced homeowners and first-time homeowners alike. Walk through the following steps to help you figure out if your finances are in the right place to buy a house in Calverton.

First, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help determine the price range for your Calverton house hunt. Next, jot down your potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, homeowners association fees, home repairs, etc.). No need to have an exact amount. While everyone's situation is different, an online search for Calverton averages will usually give you some solid estimates. Remember that the bulk of your monthly homeowner expenses could be your monthly mortgage payment.

Then, consider how much you can contribute to a down payment. Putting at least 20% down will improve your odds of getting a good rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). Even so, the minimum down payment requirements depend on the type of loan. Here's where it can help to get prequalified for a mortgage. Getting prequalified helps you know how much you might be eligible to borrow from a lender. Also, check your credit. Credit history is an important part of your mortgage application. You may be presented with more mortgage options if you have healthy credit— and more options are always good!
