Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in North Miami, FL

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A great way 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 North Miami, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Start the process with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. How do you feel about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. A good way to begin your North Miami 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. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in North Miami based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the North Miami home you've been dreaming about? If it's 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!

It's the right time to prequalify for a house in North Miami. 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. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in North Miami, the property type, how you anticipate using the property, and whether or not you're currently working with a real estate professional. Enter your expected down payment and purchase price. Follow that information with a few personal details and you're clicks away from being prequalified. The process is simple and your prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in North Miami, factor in your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and looking for the perfect home in North Miami can be time-consuming.
