Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Marrero, LA

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. One of the best ways to make sure that happens is to prepare for your home purchase ahead of time. 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 Marrero. Get started with the following steps and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. What are your general thoughts about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick reality check goes a long way. The best way to begin your Marrero home buying journey is with a healthy credit history, a good handle on your current expenses, and enough savings for a minimum 20% down payment.

Now, let's put some real numbers down. 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 Marrero based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Marrero home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If not, consider buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

It's the right time to prequalify for a house in Marrero. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's calculated based on a credit check and a couple of financial details you provide. Prequalification is also an opportunity to learn more about your various mortgage options and determine which one is right for you. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Marrero, the property type, how you anticipate using the property, and whether or not you're currently working with a real estate professional. Type in your likely 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 Marrero.
