Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Levelland, TX

Your home should be a retreat from the worries of the world, not a place where new worries begin. A good way to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. Know when you can afford to buy a home in Levelland, and when it might be better to wait until your situation changes. Get started with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Examine your finances. Look at the whole picture. How do you feel about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick reality check goes a long way. The best way to begin your Levelland 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. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Levelland based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this price range get you into the Levelland home you've been dreaming about? If not, consider looking in surrounding areas or increasing your down payment. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

It's time to prequalify for a home in Levelland. Prequalification is a more formal estimate of how much of a home loan you could get approved for. It's the result of some financial details 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. Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool makes it easy. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Levelland, 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. Provide a few more 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 Levelland, factor in your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and finding your perfect house can be time-consuming, especially in Levelland. Partner with a real estate agent in Levelland who takes care of the tedious work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Levelland and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Try it!

They're pros when it comes to what it takes to buy a house and will work hard to find the right loan for you.
