Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Pittsburg, CA

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. A good way to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand.

A good way to start your Pittsburg 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 estimate about how much house you can afford in Pittsburg based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this number get you into the Pittsburg home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If not, think about looking in surrounding areas or increasing your down payment. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!
