Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Cambridge, MN

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A good way 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 Cambridge, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Start the process 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 quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. The best way to begin your Cambridge 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 Cambridge based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Cambridge home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If not, think about 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!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Cambridge. 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. Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool makes it easy. Let us know where you’re looking to buy a home in Cambridge, 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. Share a couple more personal details and you're clicks away from being prequalified. The process is simple and your prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Cambridge, factor in your time, too. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and looking for the perfect home in Cambridge can be time-consuming. Turn to a real estate agent in Cambridge who does the bulk of the work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Cambridge and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Try it! Estimate how much you may be able to save on closing costs and real estate commissions with Mr. Cooper’s Real Estate Rewards calculator.

Applying for a home loan is the final step in getting your finances ready for a home purchase. The finish line is right around the corner! Work with a home loan servicer like Mr. Cooper, and you'll gain the distinct advantage of one-on-one support all along the way—from loan to closing. Call Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professionals. They know the details of buying a home, inside and out, and will work to find the loan that fits you best.

The house of your dreams is waiting for you and your loved ones. Call now and let us help you ready your finances to buy a house in Cambridge. You can start on the path to homeownership today!
