Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Ashland, CA

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A great way to make that happen is to be financially prepared for your home purchase before you set foot in an open house. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Ashland, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Get started with the following steps and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. How do you feel about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick reality check goes a long way. A good way to begin your Ashland 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. 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 Ashland based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Ashland home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting 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 Ashland. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's calculated based on a credit check and a couple of financial details you provide. Prequalification is also a chance to learn about your mortgage options and work with your lender to find the right fit. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Ashland, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent. Enter your expected purchase price and down payment. Provide a few more personal details and you’re on your way to getting prequalified. It's a simple process and prequalification lasts 120 days.

When figuring out what it will take to afford to buy a home in Ashland, don't forget to budget your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and looking for the perfect home in Ashland can be time-consuming. Turn to a real estate agent in Ashland 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 Ashland and potentially save thousands.* Give it a try.
