Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. One of the best ways to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. Are you confident about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A little "gut check" can go a long way.

Now, let's put some real numbers down. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can calculate how much house you can afford in Springfield based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Does this number fit your vision?

It's time to move on to the next step in the homeownership journey!
