Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Brockton, MA

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. 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. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Brockton, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Get started with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Examine your finances. Look at the whole picture. How do you feel about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick reality check goes a long way. A good way to begin your Brockton 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 play with some real numbers. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Brockton based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Brockton 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 move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

It's time to prequalify for a home in Brockton. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's the result of some financial details 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. Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool makes it easy. Let us know where you’re looking to buy a home in Brockton, 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 down payment and purchase price. 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 Brockton. Minutes and seconds are things you never get back, and looking for the perfect home in Brockton can be time-consuming. Turn to a real estate agent in Brockton who does the legwork for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Brockton and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Give it a try.
