Money Wise Tips for Affording a Home in Bothell, WA

Help make sure your home isn't a source of financial stress. A great way to ensure that happens is to ready your finances beforehand. Know when it might be better to wait until your situation improves and when you're in a financially strong enough position to buy a home in Bothell. Walk through the following steps to get started and contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to discuss strategy.

Take a look at your finances—the whole landscape. What are your general thoughts about your financial situation, credit history, savings, and current monthly expenses? A quick check-in with yourself can get you on the right path. A solid way to begin your Bothell 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 get an idea of how much house you can afford to buy in Bothell based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Does this number fit your vision? Is it enough to get you into the Bothell home you want? 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!

You're ready to prequalify for a house in Bothell. 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 a chance to learn about your mortgage options and work with your lender to find the right fit. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you'd like to buy a home in Bothell, the property type, how you anticipate using the property, and whether or not you're currently working with a real estate professional. Type in your likely purchase price and down payment. Follow that information with a few personal details and you're clicks away from being 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 Bothell, factor in your time, too.
