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. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Wilsonville, 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 streamline the process.

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 solid way to begin your Wilsonville 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. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Wilsonville based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Wilsonville home you want? If not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. If it will, then move on to your next step.
