Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Monterey, TN

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. 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 Monterey. Start the process with the following steps and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. What are your general thoughts about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A solid way to begin your Monterey 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 "put pencil to paper," as they say. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Monterey based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Monterey home you want? If not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Monterey. 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. Prequalification is also a chance to learn about your mortgage options and work with your lender to find the right fit. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you’re looking to buy a home in Monterey, the type of property you’d like to buy, how you plan on using the property, and if you’re currently working with a real estate agent. Enter your expected down payment and purchase price. Follow that information with a few personal details and you're almost prequalified. The process is simple and your prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Monterey, factor in your time, too. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and discovering your perfect Monterey home can really eat up the hours. Partner with a real estate agent in Monterey who takes care of the tedious work for you.
