Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Malverne, NY

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A great way 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 Malverne, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Get started with the following steps and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

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 check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. A good way to begin your Malverne 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. 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 Malverne based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Malverne home you want? If not, think about 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 Malverne. 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. The prequalification stage is also a great time to work with your lender to find the right mortgage options for you. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Malverne, 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. Share a couple more personal details and you're clicks away from being 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 Malverne. Minutes and seconds are things you never get back, and looking for the perfect home in Malverne can be time-consuming.
