Now, let's "put pencil to paper," as they say. 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 Krum based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Does this number fit your vision?
