Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Ballwin, MO

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A good 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 Ballwin. 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 financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A little "gut check" can go a long way. The best way to start your Ballwin home buying journey is with adequate savings for a down payment, a strong credit history, and a good grasp on your everyday expenses.

Now, let's "put pencil to paper," as they say. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can calculate how much house you can afford in Ballwin based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Ballwin home you want? If not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

It's time to prequalify for a home in Ballwin. 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. The prequalification stage is also a great time to work with your lender to find the right mortgage options for you. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Ballwin, the property type, how you anticipate using the property, and whether or not you're currently working with a real estate professional. Enter your expected down payment and purchase price. 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 Ballwin, factor in your time, too. Minutes and seconds are things you never get back, and finding your perfect house can be time-consuming, especially in Ballwin.
