Exploring Evergreen, AL From North to South

Thinking about buying a home in Evergreen? Congratulations! You've chosen an energetic city with a great balance of parks, businesses, and educational opportunities, and we're here to help make your home purchase and move a little easier. We serve 3.8 million customers nationwide and know the Evergreen housing market well.

Given all of Alabama's growth, Evergreen homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Ongoing cultural expansion and economic growth have helped to entice retirees, new businesses, and young families to the Evergreen area, but that much change also highlights the need for better infrastructure, larger schools, and a more diverse housing market. That said, Evergreen and its neighboring areas still offer an array of home styles and prices. You can find single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and (fingers-crossed) your dream home! When looking to buy a house in Evergreen, double check that you're factoring in the home's distance from your daily activities. If you can, drive the route you'd take from the house to your school, office, and favorite hangout spot. Your home's location will influence almost every aspect of your life. Exploring Evergreen will also help you get a feel for how homes in east Evergreen differ from west Evergreen, what the communities are like, and where to find Evergreen's coolest attractions.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Evergreen? Contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you're unsure of your answer. We believe in keeping the dream of homeownership alive and try our best to make the journey easier and more rewarding. You could choose to buy a home in Alabama or elsewhere. We serve new and experienced homeowners alike. Walk through the following steps to help you figure out if your finances are in the right place to buy a house in Evergreen.

First, calculate how much house you can afford. This will help you narrow your search when house hunting in Evergreen. Then, map out your potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, home repairs, homeowners association fees, etc.). No need to have an exact amount. Searching the web for Evergreen averages will usually give you a solid estimate, though everyone's situation is different. Keep in mind that your monthly mortgage payment could make up the bulk of your monthly home expenses.

Then, look at how much money you can put toward a down payment. A down payment of at least 20% can help improve your odds of getting a good rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). That said, the minimum down payment requirements depend on the type of loan. This is where getting prequalified for a mortgage comes in handy. Getting prequalified helps you know how much you might be eligible to borrow from a lender. Also, check your credit. Lenders place a high importance on credit history when looking at your mortgage application. The better your credit is, the more mortgage options you may be presented with— and who doesn't want more choices in life?
