Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Queens, NY

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A good way to make sure that happens is to prepare for your home purchase ahead of time. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Queens, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Walk through the following steps to get started and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. What are your general thoughts 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 start your Queens 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. 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 Queens based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Queens home you want? If it's not, think about increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

It's the right time to prequalify for a house in Queens. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's calculated based on a credit check and a couple of financial details you provide. Prequalification is also an opportunity to learn more about your various mortgage options and determine which one is right for you. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Queens, the property type, how you anticipate using the property, and whether or not you're currently working with a real estate professional.

The process is simple and your prequalification lasts 120 days.
