Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Middletown, DE

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. A good 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 Middletown. Walk through the following steps to get started and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Examine your finances. Look at the whole picture. Are you confident about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. A solid way to begin your Middletown 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 Middletown based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this number get you into the Middletown 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 Middletown. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's the result of some financial details you provide and a credit check. Prequalification is also an opportunity to learn more about your various mortgage options and determine which one is right for you. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Middletown, 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 almost prequalified. The process is simple and your prequalification lasts 120 days.

When figuring out what it will take to afford to buy a home in Middletown, don't forget to budget your time, too.
