Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Vestavia Hills, AL

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. Know when it might be better to wait until your situation improves and when you're in a financially strong enough position to buy a home in Vestavia Hills. Start the process with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. How do you feel about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick reality check goes a long way. A solid way to start your Vestavia Hills 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 "put pencil to paper," as they say. Plug in some numbers to Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator and see where you (and your budget) stand. You can calculate how much house you can afford in Vestavia Hills based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Vestavia Hills home you want? If it's not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. If it will, then move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

It's the right time to prequalify for a house in Vestavia Hills. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for.

Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool.
