Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Brawley, CA

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A good way to make sure that happens is to prepare for your home purchase ahead of time. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Brawley, 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.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. What are your general thoughts about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A solid way to begin your Brawley 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 pencil to paper," as they say. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Brawley based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this price range get you into the Brawley home you've been dreaming about? If it's not, think about looking in surrounding areas or increasing your down payment. If it will, then move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Brawley. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's the result of some financial details you provide and a credit check. Prequalification is also an opportunity to learn more about your various mortgage options and determine which one is right for you. Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool makes it easy. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Brawley, 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 clicks away from being prequalified. The process is simple and your prequalification lasts 120 days.
