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

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. A great way to make that happen is to be financially prepared for your home purchase before you set foot in an open house. 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 Newberg. Get started with the following steps and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. How do you feel about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A good way to begin your Newberg 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 play with some real numbers. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can calculate how much house you can afford in Newberg based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Newberg home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? 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!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Newberg. 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 an opportunity to learn more about your various mortgage options and determine which one is right for you. Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool makes it easy. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Newberg, 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 almost 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 Newberg. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and finding your perfect house can be time-consuming, especially in Newberg.
