Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Oro Valley, AZ

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A good way to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Oro Valley, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Walk through the following steps to get started and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. Are you confident about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. The best way to begin your Oro Valley 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 play with some real numbers. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Oro Valley based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this number get you into the Oro Valley home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If not, consider increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Oro Valley. 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. The prequalification stage is also a great time to work with your lender to find the right mortgage options for you. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Oro Valley, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent. Type in your likely purchase price and down payment. Provide a few more personal details and you’re on your way to getting 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 Oro Valley, factor in your time, too. Minutes and seconds are things you never get back, and finding your perfect house can be time-consuming, especially in Oro Valley.
