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

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A good way to make that happen is to be financially prepared for your home purchase before you set foot in an open house. 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 Cleveland. Get started with the following steps and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. How do you feel about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A quick reality check goes a long way. A good way to begin your Cleveland 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 get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Cleveland based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the Cleveland home you've been dreaming about? 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 Cleveland. 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 want to buy a house in Cleveland, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent. Enter your expected purchase price and down payment. Follow that information with a few personal details and you’re on your way to getting 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 Cleveland, don't forget to budget your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and discovering your perfect Cleveland home can really eat up the hours. Join forces with a real estate agent in Cleveland who does the bulk of the work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Cleveland and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Try it!
