Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Mill Valley, CA

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. 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 Mill Valley. 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 savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. The best way to start your Mill Valley 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 estimate about how much house you can afford in Mill Valley based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this price range get you into the Mill Valley home you've been dreaming about? If not, think about looking in surrounding areas or increasing your down payment.
