Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Rockledge, FL

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. A great way to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. 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 Rockledge. Get started with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. Are you confident about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A quick reality check goes a long way. A good way to begin your Rockledge 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 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 Rockledge based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Rockledge home you want? If it's not, think about looking in surrounding areas or increasing your down payment. If it will, then move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

It's time to prequalify for a home in Rockledge. 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. 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 Rockledge, 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 purchase price and down payment. Follow that information with a few personal details and you're clicks away from being 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 Rockledge, factor in your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and finding your perfect house can be time-consuming, especially in Rockledge. Turn to a real estate agent in Rockledge who does the bulk of the work for you. With Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards, you can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Rockledge and potentially save thousands.* Give it a try.
