Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Easton, MD

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 that happen is to be financially prepared for your home purchase before you set foot in an open house. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Easton, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Get started with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Examine your finances. Look at the whole picture. What are your general thoughts about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A good way to begin your Easton 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 play with some real numbers. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Easton based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this price range get you into the Easton home you've been dreaming about? If not, think about increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. If it will, then move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

It's time to prequalify for a home in Easton. 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 a chance to learn about your mortgage options and work with your lender to find the right fit. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Easton, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent. 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. The process is simple and your 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 Easton. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and finding your perfect house can be time-consuming, especially in Easton. Partner with a real estate agent in Easton who does the legwork for you. With Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards, you can get personal assistance from a high-performing Easton real estate agent and potentially save thousands of dollars.* Try it!
