Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Chillicothe, OH

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. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Chillicothe, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Get started 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 little "gut check" can go a long way. The best way to start your Chillicothe 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 some real numbers down. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Chillicothe based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the Chillicothe home you've been dreaming about? If 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 Chillicothe. 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 a chance to learn about your mortgage options and work with your lender to find the right fit. Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool makes it easy. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Chillicothe, 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 down payment and purchase price. Share a couple more personal details and you’re on your way to getting prequalified. It's a simple process and prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Chillicothe, factor in your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and discovering your perfect Chillicothe home can really eat up the hours. Partner with a real estate agent in Chillicothe who does the legwork for you. With Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards, you can get personal assistance from a high-performing Chillicothe real estate agent and potentially save thousands of dollars.* Try it!
