Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Lenexa, KS

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. One of the best ways to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Lenexa, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Get started with the following steps and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. Are you confident about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick reality check goes a long way. A good way to begin your Lenexa 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 play with some real numbers. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Lenexa based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the Lenexa home you've been dreaming about? If not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. If it will, then move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Lenexa. 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. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you’re looking to buy a home in Lenexa, 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.

Don't forget to budget your time when doing the math on how you can afford to buy a house in Lenexa. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and looking for the perfect home in Lenexa can be time-consuming. Join forces with a real estate agent in Lenexa who does the legwork for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Lenexa and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Try it—there's no strings attached.
