Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Bethany, OK

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A great way 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 Bethany, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Walk through the following steps to get started and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. 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 begin your Bethany 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. 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 Bethany based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Bethany 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 the right time to prequalify for a house in Bethany. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's based on some financial information you provide and a credit check. Prequalification is also a chance to learn about your mortgage options and work with your lender to find the right fit. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Bethany, 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 clicks away from being prequalified. The process is simple and your 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 Bethany. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and looking for the perfect home in Bethany can be time-consuming. Join forces with a real estate agent in Bethany who does the bulk of the work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Bethany and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Give it a try.
