Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Ocean View, DE

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. One of the best ways to make sure that happens is to prepare for your home purchase ahead of time. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Ocean View, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Start the process with the following steps and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. What are your general thoughts about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A solid way to start your Ocean View 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. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can calculate how much house you can afford in Ocean View based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this price range get you into the Ocean View home you've been dreaming about? If not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. If it will, then move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

It's time to prequalify for a home in Ocean View. 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. Prequalification is also an opportunity to learn more about your various mortgage options and determine which one is right for you. Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool makes it easy. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Ocean View, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent. Enter your expected down payment and purchase price. Follow that information with a few personal details and you’re on your way to getting prequalified. It's a simple process and prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Ocean View, factor in your time, too. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and finding your perfect house can be time-consuming, especially in Ocean View. Partner with a real estate agent in Ocean View who takes care of the tedious work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Ocean View and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Give it a try.
