Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. 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. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Bowling Green, 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 discuss strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. How do you feel about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A quick reality check goes a long way. A solid way to start your Bowling Green 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 Bowling Green based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Bowling Green home you want? 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!

It's the right time to prequalify for a house in Bowling Green. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for.

Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Bowling Green, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent.
