Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Newington, CT

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. 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 Newington, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Start the process with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. Are you confident about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A quick reality check goes a long way. The best way to start your Newington 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. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Newington based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Newington home you want? If not, think about increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. If it will, then move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Newington. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's based on some financial information you provide and a credit check. The prequalification stage is also a great time to work with your lender to find the right mortgage options for you. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Newington, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent. Enter your expected purchase price and down payment. Follow that information with a few personal details and you're almost prequalified. It's a simple process and prequalification lasts 120 days.
