Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Perris, CA

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A great way to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Perris, 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 discuss strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. Are you confident about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. The best way to begin your Perris 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 play with some real numbers. Plug in some numbers to Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator and see where you (and your budget) stand. You can calculate how much house you can afford in Perris based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Perris home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If it's not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. If it's a good number, then call Mr. Cooper. It's time to move on to the next step in the homeownership journey!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Perris. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for.

The process is simple and your prequalification lasts 120 days.
