Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Canton, MS

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A great way to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Canton, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Start the process with the following steps and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. Are you confident about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. A good way to start your Canton 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 play with some real numbers. Plug in some numbers to Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator and see where you (and your budget) stand. You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Canton based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Canton home you want? If it's not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting 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 Canton. 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. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you’re looking to buy a home in Canton, 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 purchase price and down payment. Provide a few more personal details and you're almost prequalified. The process is straightforward. Prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Canton, factor in your time, too.
