Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Severna Park, MD

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A great way to make sure that happens is to prepare for your home purchase ahead of time. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Severna Park, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Walk through the following steps to get started and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. How do you feel about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. A solid way to begin your Severna Park 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 play with some real numbers. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Severna Park based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Severna Park home you want? If not, think about 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 the right time to prequalify for a house in Severna Park. 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. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Severna Park, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent. Type in your likely purchase price and down payment. Provide a few more personal details and you're almost prequalified. The process is simple and your prequalification lasts 120 days.

When figuring out what it will take to afford to buy a home in Severna Park, don't forget to budget your time, too.
