Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Minneapolis, MN

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. Know when it might be better to wait until your situation improves and when you're in a financially strong enough position to buy a home in Minneapolis. Walk through the following steps to get started and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. Are you confident about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick reality check goes a long way. A good way to begin your Minneapolis 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. 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 Minneapolis based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this price range get you into the Minneapolis home you've been dreaming about? If not, think about 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 Minneapolis. 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 Minneapolis, 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. 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.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Minneapolis, factor in your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and looking for the perfect home in Minneapolis can be time-consuming. Join forces with a real estate agent in Minneapolis who takes care of the tedious work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Minneapolis and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Try it—there's no strings attached.
