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

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. One of the best ways to make sure that happens is to prepare for your home purchase ahead of time. Know when it might be better to wait until your situation improves and when you're in a financially strong enough position to buy a home in Keizer. 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. What are your general thoughts 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 Keizer 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. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can calculate how much house you can afford in Keizer based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Keizer home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If not, think about increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

It's time to prequalify for a home in Keizer. 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. The prequalification stage is also a great time to work with your lender to find the right mortgage options for you. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Keizer, 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. Provide a few more personal details and you're clicks away from being prequalified. The process is straightforward. Prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Keizer, factor in your time, too. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and looking for the perfect home in Keizer can be time-consuming. Join forces with a real estate agent in Keizer who does the legwork for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Keizer and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Try it!
