Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Wethersfield, CT

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A great way to make sure that happens is to prepare for your home purchase ahead of time. 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 Wethersfield. Walk through the following steps to get started and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. What are your general thoughts about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A quick reality check goes a long way. A good way to begin your Wethersfield 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 get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Wethersfield based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this number get you into the Wethersfield home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If not, consider increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. If it's a good number, then call Mr. Cooper. It's time to move on to the next step in the homeownership journey!

It's the right time to prequalify for a house in Wethersfield. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for.
