Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Tooele, UT

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. A good way 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 Tooele, or if you should hold off until your situation is different. Walk through the following steps to get started and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. What are your general thoughts about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A quick reality check goes a long way. A good way to start your Tooele 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 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 calculate how much house you can afford in Tooele based on your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment and income. Will this price range get you into the Tooele home you've been dreaming about? If not, think about buying a house in a surrounding area or boosting your down payment. 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 time to prequalify for a home in Tooele. 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 Tooele, 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 crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Tooele, factor in your time, too. Time is non-renewable and non-refundable, and discovering your perfect Tooele home can really eat up the hours. Turn to a real estate agent in Tooele who does the legwork for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Tooele and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Try it!
