Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Cary, NC

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. 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 Cary, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Start the process with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. How do you feel about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. A solid way to start your Cary 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 play with some real numbers. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Cary based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the Cary home you've been dreaming about? If not, consider buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting 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 Cary. 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. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Cary, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent. Enter your expected down payment and purchase price. Share a couple more personal details and you're almost prequalified. The process is simple and your prequalification lasts 120 days.

When figuring out what it will take to afford to buy a home in Cary, don't forget to budget your time, too. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and looking for the perfect home in Cary can be time-consuming. Join forces with a real estate agent in Cary who does the bulk of the work for you.
