Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Kill Devil Hills, NC

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 that happen is to be financially prepared for your home purchase before you set foot in an open house. 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 Kill Devil Hills. Get started with the following steps and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. Are you confident about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick reality check goes a long way. A solid way to begin your Kill Devil Hills 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 pencil to paper," as they say. 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 Kill Devil Hills based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Kill Devil Hills home you want? If 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 Kill Devil Hills. 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. 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'd like to buy a home in Kill Devil Hills, the property type, how you anticipate using the property, and whether or not you're currently working with a real estate professional.

Prequalification lasts 120 days.
