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

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. A good 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 El Paso. Get started with the following steps and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to talk strategy.

Examine your finances. Look at the whole picture. Are you confident about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A solid way to start your El Paso 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. Plug in some numbers to Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator and see where you (and your budget) stand. You can estimate about how much house you can afford in El Paso based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this price range get you into the El Paso home you've been dreaming about? If not, consider increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. 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 El Paso. 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. The prequalification stage is also a great time to work with your lender to find the right mortgage options for you. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in El Paso, 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. Provide a few more personal details and you’re on your way to getting prequalified. The process is straightforward. Prequalification lasts 120 days.

When figuring out what it will take to afford to buy a home in El Paso, don't forget to budget your time, too.
