Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Estes Park, CO

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. 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 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 Estes Park. Get started with the following steps and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. Are you confident about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A quick reality check goes a long way. A good way to begin your Estes Park 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 pencil to paper," as they say. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Estes Park based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the Estes Park home you've been dreaming about? 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!

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

Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you’re looking to buy a home in Estes Park, 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.
