Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Bronx, 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 make sure that happens is to prepare for your home purchase ahead of time. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Bronx, 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.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. How do you feel about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick reality check goes a long way. The best way to begin your Bronx 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 some real numbers down. 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 Bronx based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Bronx home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If not, consider buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. If it will, then move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Bronx. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's based on some financial information you provide and a credit check. Prequalification is also a chance to learn about your mortgage options and work with your lender to find the right fit. Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool makes it easy. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Bronx, 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. Follow that information with a few personal details and you’re on your way to getting prequalified. It's a simple process and 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 Bronx. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and finding your perfect house can be time-consuming, especially in Bronx. Partner with a real estate agent in Bronx who does the legwork for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Bronx and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Try it!
