Tinley Park is growing by the day, which means Tinley Park homes don't always come cheap.

When looking to buy a house in Tinley Park, double check that you're factoring in the home's distance from your daily activities.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Tinley Park? Reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you don't know how to go about answering that question. We believe everyone can find their dream home and work to make the journey less worrisome and more rewarding every step of the way. You don't even have to stick with your decision to buy a house in Tinley Park. We support new and experienced homeowners alike. Walk through the following steps to help you determine if you're financially ready to buy a home in Tinley Park.

Before anything else, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you narrow your search when house hunting in Tinley Park. After that, add up the potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, homeowners association fees, home repairs, etc.). It's okay if these numbers are educated guesses. Everyone's situation will differ, but a quick online search for average expenses in Tinley Park will usually point you in the right direction. Keep in mind that your monthly mortgage payment could make up the bulk of your monthly home expenses.

Then, look at how much money you can put toward a down payment. Putting at least 20% down will boost your odds of getting a good rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). However, the minimum down payment requirements depend on the type of loan. This is where getting prequalified for a mortgage comes in handy. Prequalification points you in the right direction as far as how much you may be eligible to borrow. Also, check your credit. Credit history is one of the main factors that lenders look at when considering your mortgage application. You may be presented with more mortgage options if you have healthy credit— and more options are always good!
