Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Orangevale, CA

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. A great way 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 Orangevale. Walk through the following steps to get started and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Examine your finances. Look at the whole picture. 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. A good way to begin your Orangevale home buying journey is with adequate savings for a down payment, a strong credit history, and a good grasp on your everyday expenses.

Now, let's play with some real numbers. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Orangevale based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Orangevale 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 take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

It's the right time to prequalify for a house in Orangevale. 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 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 Orangevale, 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 on your way to getting 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 Orangevale, factor in your time, too. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and looking for the perfect home in Orangevale can be time-consuming. Partner with a real estate agent in Orangevale who does the bulk of the work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Orangevale and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Try it—there's no strings attached.
