Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Coos Bay, OR

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. 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 Coos Bay, 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.

Examine your finances. Look at the whole picture. What are your general thoughts about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. A good way to start your Coos Bay 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 play with some real numbers. 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 Coos Bay based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the Coos Bay home you've been dreaming about? If it's not, think about increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. If it will, then move on to your next step. Call Mr. Cooper!

It's the right time to prequalify for a house in Coos Bay. 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. Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool makes it easy. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Coos Bay, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent. Enter your expected down payment and purchase price. Follow that information with a few personal details and you're clicks away from being prequalified. The process is straightforward. Prequalification lasts 120 days.
