Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Burlingame, CA

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. 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 Burlingame, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Get started with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. How do you feel about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A quick reality check goes a long way. The best way to start your Burlingame 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. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Burlingame based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Burlingame home you want? If not, consider looking in surrounding areas or increasing 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 Burlingame. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for.
