Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in San Juan Capistrano, CA

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. A great way to make that happen is to be financially prepared for your home purchase before you set foot in an open house. 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 San Juan Capistrano. Get started with the following steps and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Examine your finances. Look at the whole picture. How do you feel about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A good way to start your San Juan Capistrano 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 put some real numbers down. Plug in some numbers to Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator and see where you (and your budget) stand. You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in San Juan Capistrano based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the San Juan Capistrano home you want? If 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 San Juan Capistrano. 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. Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool makes it easy. Let us know where you’re looking to buy a home in San Juan Capistrano, the type of property you’d like to buy, how you plan on using the property, and if you’re currently working with a real estate agent. Enter your expected purchase price and down payment. Provide a few more personal details and you're almost 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 San Juan Capistrano.
