Given all of Maryland's growth, Severna Park homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Ongoing economic growth and cultural expansion have helped to entice retirees, new businesses, and young families to the Severna Park area, but so much change also means more traffic, more competition, and a need for more schools. That said, Severna Park and the surrounding areas still offer a wide range of homes in price and amenities. You can find single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and (hopefully) your dream home! When buying a home in Severna Park, double check that you're factoring in the home's distance from your daily activities. If you can, test drive your trip from the house to work, school, and the grocery store. The location of your house will impact virtually every part of your life.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Severna Park? Contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you're unsure of your answer. We believe everyone can find their dream home and work to make every stage of the journey more enjoyable and less worrisome. You could choose to buy a home in Maryland or elsewhere. We work with new and experienced homeowners alike. Walk through the following steps to help you see if you're in a good financial position to buy a house in Severna Park.

Before anything else, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help determine the price range for your Severna Park house hunt. Next, map out your potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, homeowners association fees, home repairs, etc.). No need to have an exact amount. Everyone's situation will differ, but a quick online search for average expenses in Severna Park will usually point you in the right direction. Remember that the bulk of your monthly homeowner expenses could be your monthly mortgage payment.

Then, look at how much money you can put toward a down payment. A down payment of at least 20% can help increase your chances of getting a great 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 will give you an idea of how much you might qualify to borrow. Also, take a good look at your credit. Credit history is one of the main factors that lenders look at when considering your mortgage application. The better your credit is, the more mortgage options you may be presented with— and more options are always good!
