Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Rockwall, TX

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. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Rockwall, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Walk through the following steps to get started and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. How do you feel about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A little "gut check" can go a long way. A good way to begin your Rockwall home buying journey is with adequate savings for a down payment, a strong credit history, and a good grasp on your everyday expenses.

Now, let's "put pencil to paper," as they say. Use Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator to see where your budget stands. You can calculate how much house you can afford in Rockwall based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this price range get you into the Rockwall home you've been dreaming about? If not, think about 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 Rockwall. 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. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Rockwall, 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 purchase price and down payment. Share a couple more personal details and you're clicks away from being prequalified. It's a simple process and prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Rockwall, factor in your time, too. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and discovering your perfect Rockwall home can really eat up the hours.
