Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Claremont, 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 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 Claremont. Get started with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

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 Claremont home buying journey is with confidence, a strong credit history, enough savings for a down payment, and a good handle on your current expenses.

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 get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Claremont based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Claremont 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!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Claremont. 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. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Claremont, the property type, how you anticipate using the property, and whether or not you're currently working with a real estate professional. Enter your expected purchase price and down payment. Share a couple more personal details and you’re on your way to getting prequalified. It's a simple process and prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Claremont, factor in your time, too. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and finding your perfect house can be time-consuming, especially in Claremont.
