Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Jericho, 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 that happen is to be financially prepared for your home purchase before you set foot in an open house. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Jericho, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Get started with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. How do you feel about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A quick reality check goes a long way. A solid way to start your Jericho 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. Plug in some numbers to Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator and see where you (and your budget) stand. You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Jericho based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the Jericho home you've been dreaming about? If not, consider increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. If it's a good number, then call Mr. Cooper. It's time to move on to the next step in the homeownership journey!

It's the right time to prequalify for a house in Jericho. 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’re looking to buy a home in Jericho, 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. 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 Jericho, don't forget to budget your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and discovering your perfect Jericho home can really eat up the hours. Join forces with a real estate agent in Jericho who does the legwork for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Jericho and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Give it a try.
