Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Butte, MT

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. One of the best ways to make that happen is to be financially prepared for your home purchase before you set foot in an open house. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Butte, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Walk through the following steps to get started and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss 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 quick reality check goes a long way. A good way to begin your Butte 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 play with some real numbers. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can calculate how much house you can afford in Butte based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Butte home you want? If it's not, think about increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

It's the right time to prequalify for a house in Butte. 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 an opportunity to learn more about your various mortgage options and determine which one is right for you. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Butte, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent. Type in your likely purchase price and down payment. Provide a few more personal details and you're almost prequalified. The process is straightforward. Prequalification lasts 120 days.

Don't forget to budget your time when doing the math on how you can afford to buy a house in Butte. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and looking for the perfect home in Butte can be time-consuming. Partner with a real estate agent in Butte who does the bulk of the work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Butte and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Give it a try.
