Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Pleasant Hill, CA

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A good way to make that happen is to be financially prepared for your home purchase before you set foot in an open house. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Pleasant Hill, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Get started with the following steps and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. How do you feel about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A solid way to begin your Pleasant Hill 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 Pleasant Hill based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this number get you into the Pleasant Hill 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 move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Pleasant Hill. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's calculated based on a credit check and a couple of financial details you provide. The prequalification stage is also a great time to work with your lender to find the right mortgage options for you. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Pleasant Hill, 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. Share a couple more personal details and you’re on your way to getting prequalified. It's a simple process and 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 Pleasant Hill. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and discovering your perfect Pleasant Hill home can really eat up the hours. Turn to a real estate agent in Pleasant Hill who does the legwork for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Pleasant Hill and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Try it!
