Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Geneva, AL

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. A great way to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Geneva, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Walk through the following steps to get started and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. 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 good way to begin your Geneva home buying journey is with adequate savings for a down payment, a strong credit history, and a good grasp on your everyday expenses.

Now, let's put some real numbers down. Plug in some numbers to Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator and see where you (and your budget) stand. You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Geneva based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the Geneva home you've been dreaming about? If not, consider looking in surrounding areas or increasing 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 time to prequalify for a home in Geneva. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's based on some financial information you provide and a credit check. Prequalification is also a chance to learn about your mortgage options and work with your lender to find the right fit. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Geneva, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent. Enter your expected down payment and purchase price. Follow that information with a few personal details and you're clicks away from being prequalified. The process is simple and your prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Geneva, factor in your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and looking for the perfect home in Geneva can be time-consuming. Partner with a real estate agent in Geneva who does the bulk of the work for you. With Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards, you can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Geneva and potentially save thousands.* Give it a try.
