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

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A great way to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Yonkers, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Get started with the following steps and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. How do you feel about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A quick reality check goes a long way. The best way to start your Yonkers home buying journey is with confidence, a strong credit history, enough savings for a down payment, and a good handle on your current 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 estimate about how much house you can afford in Yonkers based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the Yonkers home you've been dreaming about? If it's not, think about looking in surrounding areas or increasing your down payment. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

It's time to prequalify for a home in Yonkers. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's the result of some financial details 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. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you’re looking to buy a home in Yonkers, 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. Enter your expected down payment and purchase price. Provide a few more personal details and you're almost 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 Yonkers. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and looking for the perfect home in Yonkers can be time-consuming. Turn to a real estate agent in Yonkers who does the bulk of the work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Yonkers and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Give it a try.
