Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Lawndale, 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 sure that happens is to prepare for your home purchase ahead of time. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Lawndale, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Walk through the following steps to get started and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. Are you confident about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A good way to start your Lawndale 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. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can calculate how much house you can afford in Lawndale based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the Lawndale home you've been dreaming about? If it's not, think about increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. If it will, then move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

It's time to prequalify for a home in Lawndale. 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. Prequalification is also a chance to learn about your mortgage options and work with your lender to find the right fit. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Lawndale, 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 almost 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 Lawndale, factor in your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and looking for the perfect home in Lawndale can be time-consuming. Turn to a real estate agent in Lawndale who takes care of the tedious work for you. With Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards, you can get personal assistance from a high-performing Lawndale real estate agent and potentially save thousands of dollars.* Give it a try.
