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

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. A good 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 Bixby, 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 talk strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. How do you feel about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. A good way to start your Bixby home buying journey is with confidence, a strong credit history, enough savings for a down payment, and a good handle on your current expenses.

Now, let's put some real numbers down. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Bixby based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the Bixby home you've been dreaming about? If not, consider looking in surrounding areas or increasing your down payment. If it will, then move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

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