Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Newburgh, 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. 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 Newburgh. Walk through the following steps to get started and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. Are you confident 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 begin your Newburgh 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 play with some real numbers. Plug in some numbers to Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator and see where you (and your budget) stand. You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Newburgh based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Newburgh home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting 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 Newburgh. 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 an opportunity to learn more about your various mortgage options and determine which one is right for you. Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool makes it easy. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Newburgh, the property type, how you anticipate using the property, and whether or not you're currently working with a real estate professional. Type in your likely purchase price and down payment. Share a couple more personal details and you're almost prequalified. The process is straightforward. Prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Newburgh, factor in your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and looking for the perfect home in Newburgh can be time-consuming. Partner with a real estate agent in Newburgh who does the bulk of the work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Newburgh and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Give it a try.
