Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Fernandina Beach, FL

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A great way to make that happen is to be financially prepared for your home purchase before you set foot in an open house. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Fernandina Beach, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Start the process with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. Are you confident about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. The best way to start your Fernandina Beach 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 some real numbers down. 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 Fernandina Beach based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Fernandina Beach home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? 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 Fernandina Beach. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for.

Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Fernandina Beach, the property type, how you anticipate using the property, and whether or not you're currently working with a real estate professional.
