Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Holyoke, MA

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. 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 Holyoke, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Walk through the following steps to get started and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Examine your finances. Look at the whole picture. How do you feel about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A little "gut check" can go a long way. The best way to begin your Holyoke 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. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can calculate how much house you can afford in Holyoke based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Holyoke home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If not, consider looking in surrounding areas or increasing 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 Holyoke. 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. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Holyoke, 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. Provide a few more personal details and you’re on your way to getting prequalified. It's a simple process and prequalification lasts 120 days.
