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

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. One of the best ways to make that happen is to be financially prepared for your home purchase before you set foot in an open house. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Fresno, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Get started with the following steps and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. Are you confident about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A quick reality check goes a long way. A solid way to start your Fresno 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 some real numbers down. 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 Fresno based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this number get you into the Fresno home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If it's not, think about increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

It's time to prequalify for a home in Fresno. 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. 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 want to buy a house in Fresno, the property type, how you're going to use the property, and if you currently have a real estate agent. Enter your expected down payment and purchase price. Share a couple more personal details and you're almost prequalified. The process is straightforward. Prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Fresno, factor in your time, too.
