Your Step-by-Step Guide to Afford to Buy a House in Carrollton, TX

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. A great way to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. 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 Carrollton. Get started with the following steps and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. How do you feel about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick reality check goes a long way. A solid way to begin your Carrollton 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. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Carrollton based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the Carrollton home you've been dreaming about? If it's not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. If it's a good number, then call Mr. Cooper. It's time to move on to the next step in the homeownership journey!

It's the right time to prequalify for a house in Carrollton. 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. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you’re looking to buy a home in Carrollton, 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. It's a simple process and prequalification lasts 120 days.
