Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Laconia, NH

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 Laconia. Get started with the following steps and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. Are you confident about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. A solid way to start your Laconia 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 pencil to paper," as they say. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Laconia based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Laconia 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 the right time to prequalify for a house in Laconia. 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. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Laconia, 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. Provide a few more 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 Laconia, don't forget to budget your time, too.
