Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Centerville, OH

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A good 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 Centerville, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Walk through the following steps to get started 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 check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. A solid way to start your Centerville 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 "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 Centerville based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this number get you into the Centerville home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If it's not, think about looking in surrounding areas or increasing your down payment. If it will, then move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Centerville. 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'd like to buy a home in Centerville, the property type, how you anticipate using the property, and whether or not you're currently working with a real estate professional. Enter your expected purchase price and down payment. Follow that information with a few personal details and you're clicks away from being 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 Centerville. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and finding your perfect house can be time-consuming, especially in Centerville.
