Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Parkland, 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 Parkland. Start the process with the following steps and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. What are your general thoughts about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick reality check goes a long way. The best way to start your Parkland 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. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Parkland based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Parkland home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. If it's a good number, then call Mr. Cooper. It's time to move on to the next step in the homeownership journey!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Parkland. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's the result of some financial details you provide and a credit check. 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'd like to buy a home in Parkland, 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. Share a couple more personal details and you're clicks away from being prequalified. The process is straightforward. Prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Parkland, factor in your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and discovering your perfect Parkland home can really eat up the hours.
