Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Biloxi, MS

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. A good way to make sure that happens is to prepare for your home purchase ahead of time. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Biloxi, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Start the process with the following steps and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. What are your general thoughts about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A quick reality check goes a long way. A good way to start your Biloxi 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. Plug in some numbers to Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator and see where you (and your budget) stand. You can calculate how much house you can afford in Biloxi based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Biloxi home you want? 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 Biloxi. 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 Biloxi, 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. Follow that information with a few personal details and you're clicks away from being prequalified. It's a simple process and prequalification lasts 120 days.

When figuring out what it will take to afford to buy a home in Biloxi, don't forget to budget your time, too. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and looking for the perfect home in Biloxi can be time-consuming. Join forces with a real estate agent in Biloxi who does the bulk of the work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Biloxi and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Give it a try.
