Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Paradise, 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 make that happen is to be financially prepared for your home purchase before you set foot in an open house. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Paradise, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Walk through the following steps to get started and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. Are you confident about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A solid way to start your Paradise 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 put some real numbers down. 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 Paradise based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Paradise home you want? If it's not, think about increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. If it's a good number, then call Mr. Cooper. It's time to move on to the next step in the homeownership journey!

It's the right time to prequalify for a house in Paradise. 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. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Paradise, the property type, how you anticipate using the property, and whether or not you're currently working with a real estate professional. Type in your likely purchase price and down payment. Share a couple 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 Paradise. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and discovering your perfect Paradise home can really eat up the hours. Partner with a real estate agent in Paradise who takes care of the tedious work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Paradise and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Give it a try.
