Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Pasadena, MD

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. A good way to make sure that happens is to prepare for your home purchase ahead of time. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Pasadena, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Get started with the following steps and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Examine your finances. Look at the whole picture. What are your general thoughts about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A solid way to start your Pasadena 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 put some real numbers down. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Pasadena based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Pasadena home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If 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!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Pasadena. 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. The prequalification stage is also a great time to work with your lender to find the right mortgage options for you. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Pasadena, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent. Enter your expected purchase price and down payment. Share a couple more personal details and you're clicks away from being prequalified. The process is straightforward. 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 Pasadena. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and discovering your perfect Pasadena home can really eat up the hours. Join forces with a real estate agent in Pasadena who takes care of the tedious work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Pasadena and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Give it a try.
