Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Moorpark, CA

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. One of the best ways to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. 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 Moorpark. Start the process with the following steps and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Examine your finances. Look at the whole picture. What are your general thoughts about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A quick reality check goes a long way. A good way to start your Moorpark home buying journey is with a healthy credit history, a good handle on your current expenses, and enough savings for a minimum 20% down payment.

Now, let's "put pencil to paper," as they say. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can calculate how much house you can afford in Moorpark based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Moorpark home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? 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 the right time to prequalify for a house in Moorpark. 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. Prequalification is also an opportunity to learn more about your various mortgage options and determine which one is right for you. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Moorpark, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent. Type in your likely purchase price and down payment. Provide a few more personal details and you're clicks away from being prequalified. The process is simple and your prequalification lasts 120 days.

Don't forget to budget your time when doing the math on how you can afford to buy a house in Moorpark. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and looking for the perfect home in Moorpark can be time-consuming. Partner with a real estate agent in Moorpark who does the bulk of the work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Moorpark and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Try it—there's no strings attached.
