Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Ocala, FL

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. One of the best ways 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 Ocala. Walk through the following steps to get started and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. How do you feel about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick reality check goes a long way. A good way to begin your Ocala home buying journey is with confidence, a strong credit history, enough savings for a down payment, and a good handle on your current expenses.

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 calculate how much house you can afford in Ocala based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this number get you into the Ocala home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If it's not, think about 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 time to prequalify for a home in Ocala. 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 a chance to learn about your mortgage options and work with your lender to find the right fit. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Ocala, 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. Provide a few more 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 Ocala, factor in your time, too. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and finding your perfect house can be time-consuming, especially in Ocala. Turn to a real estate agent in Ocala who takes care of the tedious work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Ocala and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Give it a try.
