Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Landover, MD

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. 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 you can afford to buy a home in Landover, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Start the process with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Examine your finances. Look at the whole picture. Are you confident about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A good way to start your Landover 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. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Landover based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Landover home you want? If not, consider buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. If it's a good number, then call Mr. Cooper. It's time to move on to the next step in the homeownership journey!

It's time to prequalify for a home in Landover. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's calculated based on a credit check and a couple of financial details you provide. Prequalification is also an opportunity to learn more about your various mortgage options and determine which one is right for you. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Landover, the property type, how you anticipate using the property, and whether or not you're currently working with a real estate professional.
