Steps to Afford to Buy a Home in Spokane Valley, WA

You want your home to be a haven of happiness, not a financial burden. A great way to make sure that happens is to prepare for your home purchase ahead of time. 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 Spokane Valley. Walk through the following steps to get started and reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional to streamline the process.

Examine your finances. Look at the whole picture. How do you feel about your savings, current debt, monthly expenses, and credit history? A quick reality check goes a long way. A solid way to start your Spokane Valley 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. See where your budget stands with Mr. Cooper's affordability calculator. How's it looking? You can estimate about how much house you can afford in Spokane Valley based on income or your desired maximum monthly mortgage payment. Will this number get you into the Spokane Valley home or neighborhood you've had your eye on? If it's not, think about increasing your down payment or looking in surrounding areas. If it will, then take the next step in the homeownership journey with Mr. Cooper!

It's the right time to prequalify for a house in Spokane Valley. 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. Prequalification is also an opportunity to learn more about your various mortgage options and determine which one is right for you. Get started using Mr. Cooper’s online prequalification tool. Let us know where you want to buy a house in Spokane Valley, 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 clicks away from being prequalified. The process is straightforward. Prequalification lasts 120 days.

When crunching the numbers on how you'll afford to buy a home in Spokane Valley, factor in your time, too. Your time is one resource that's non-refundable and non-renewable, and looking for the perfect home in Spokane Valley can be time-consuming. Join forces with a real estate agent in Spokane Valley who takes care of the tedious work for you. You can get connected with a top-performing real estate agent in Spokane Valley and potentially save thousands with Mr. Cooper® Real Estate Rewards.* Try it—there's no strings attached.
