Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Ives Estates, FL

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. One of the best ways 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 Ives Estates, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Get started with the following steps and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. What are your general thoughts about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. A solid way to start your Ives Estates 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. Plug in some numbers to Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator and see where you (and your budget) stand. You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Ives Estates based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Ives Estates home you want? If not, think about increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Ives Estates. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for.

Prequalification is also an opportunity to learn more about your various mortgage options and determine which one is right for you. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you’re looking to buy a home in Ives Estates, the type of property you’d like to buy, how you plan on using the property, and if you’re currently working with a real estate agent.
