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

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. A good way to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Punta Gorda, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Get started with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Examine your finances. Look at the whole picture. How do you feel about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A good way to start your Punta Gorda home buying journey is with adequate savings for a down payment, a strong credit history, and a good grasp on your everyday expenses.

Now, let's play with some real numbers. 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 Punta Gorda based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this price range get you into the Punta Gorda 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!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Punta Gorda. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's based on some financial information you provide and a credit check. The prequalification stage is also a great time to work with your lender to find the right mortgage options for you. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you’re looking to buy a home in Punta Gorda, 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. 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.
