Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. A great 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 Manchester. Start the process with the following steps and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. What are your general thoughts about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. The best way to start your Manchester 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 put some real numbers down. 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 Manchester based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the Manchester home you've been dreaming about? If not, think about looking in surrounding areas or increasing 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 Manchester. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for.
