Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Brockport, NY

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. One of the best ways to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Brockport, 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 current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. A solid way to start your Brockport 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 Brockport based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this number get you into the Brockport home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If not, think about looking in surrounding areas or increasing your down payment. If it's a good number, then call Mr. Cooper. It's time to move on to the next step in the homeownership journey!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Brockport. 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’re looking to buy a home in Brockport, the type of property you’d like to buy, how you plan on using the property, and if you’re currently working with a real estate agent. Type in your likely purchase price and down payment. Share a couple more personal details and you're clicks away from being prequalified. The process is straightforward. Prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Brockport, factor in your time, too. Minutes and seconds are things you never get back, and discovering your perfect Brockport home can really eat up the hours. Join forces with a real estate agent in Brockport who takes care of the tedious work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Brockport and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Give it a try.

The last step in preparing your finances to buy a house in Brockport is to apply for a home loan. Can you see the finish line?

They know the details of buying a home, inside and out, and will work to find the loan that fits you best.
