You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. A good way to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. Know when you can afford to buy a home in St. John, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Walk through the following steps to get started and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. Are you confident about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A quick reality check goes a long way. A good way to start your St. John 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 pencil to paper," as they say. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can calculate how much house you can afford in St. John based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the St. John home you want? If 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!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in St. John. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for.

Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool makes it easy. Let us know where you want to buy a house in St. John, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent.

It's a simple process and prequalification lasts 120 days.
