Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in La Presa, CA

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. One of the best ways 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 La Presa, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Start the process with the following steps and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

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. The best way to start your La Presa 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 play with some real numbers. 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 La Presa based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the La Presa home you've been dreaming about? If not, consider looking in surrounding areas or increasing your down payment. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in La Presa. 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. 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 La Presa, 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. Follow that information with a few personal details and you're almost 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 La Presa, factor in your time, too. Minutes and seconds are things you never get back, and discovering your perfect La Presa home can really eat up the hours.
