Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Van Alstyne, 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. Be honest with yourself to determine if you can afford to buy a house in Van Alstyne, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Get started with the following steps and call a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Evaluate every angle of your finances. Are you confident about your current monthly expenses, credit history, and savings? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. A solid way to start your Van Alstyne 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 pencil to paper," as they say. Plug in some numbers to Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator and see where you (and your budget) stand. You can get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Van Alstyne based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this price range get you into the Van Alstyne home you've been dreaming about? If not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting 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 Van Alstyne. 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. Prequalification is also an opportunity to learn more about your various mortgage options and determine which one is right for you. Start with Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you’re looking to buy a home in Van Alstyne, 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. 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 figuring out what it will take to afford to buy a home in Van Alstyne, don't forget to budget your time, too.
