Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Jenison, MI

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A great way to make sure that happens is to prepare for your home purchase ahead of time. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Jenison, 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 financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A good way to start your Jenison 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 put some real numbers down. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can calculate how much house you can afford in Jenison based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Jenison home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If not, consider looking in surrounding areas or increasing your down payment. If it's a good number, then call Mr. Cooper. It's time to move on to the next step in the homeownership journey!

It's the right time to prequalify for a house in Jenison. 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. The prequalification stage is also a great time to work with your lender to find the right mortgage options for you. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Jenison, the property type, how you anticipate using the property, and whether or not you're currently working with a real estate professional. Enter your expected 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.

When figuring out what it will take to afford to buy a home in Jenison, don't forget to budget your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and discovering your perfect Jenison home can really eat up the hours. Partner with a real estate agent in Jenison who takes care of the tedious work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Jenison and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Try it—there's no strings attached.
