Understanding the Glendale, AZ Housing Landscape

Ready to lay down some roots and buy a house in Glendale? Smart move! You've chosen a vibrant city with a great balance of businesses, schools, restaurants and parks, and we're here to help the home purchase process go a little smoother. We service 3.8 million customers from coast to coast and know the Glendale housing market well.

Glendale is growing by the day, which means Glendale homes don't always come cheap. Ongoing cultural expansion and economic growth have helped to beckon young families, new businesses, and retirees to the Glendale area, but so much change also means more traffic, more competition, and a need for more schools. Even so, Glendale and the surrounding areas still offer an array of home styles and prices. You can find townhomes, condos, single-family homes, duplexes, and (fingers-crossed) your dream house! When looking to buy a house in Glendale, consider how near or far away the home is from the places you visit most. If you can, drive the route you'd take from the house to your school, office, and favorite hangout spot. The location of your house will impact virtually every part of your life. Exploring Glendale will also help you get a feel for how homes in east Glendale differ from west Glendale, where to find Glendale's most popular attractions, and what the neighborhoods are like.

Are your finances in the right place to buy a home in Glendale? Contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you're unsure of your answer. We believe in keeping the dream of homeownership alive and work to make the journey less worrisome and more rewarding every step of the way. It doesn't matter whether you want to buy a home in Arizona or somewhere else entirely. We serve new and experienced homeowners alike. Walk through the following steps to help you see if you're in a good financial position to buy a house in Glendale.

Before anything else, calculate how much house you can afford. This will help you set a price range while house shopping in Glendale. Then, jot down your potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, home repairs, homeowners association fees, etc.). No need to have an exact amount. Everyone's situation will differ, but a quick online search for average expenses in Glendale will usually point you in the right direction. Keep in mind that a mortgage payment could make up the majority of most homeowners’ monthly household expenses.

Then, figure out what a realistic down payment would be for you. A down payment of at least 20% can help boost your odds of getting a good rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). However, the minimum down payment requirements depend on the type of loan. This is where getting prequalified for a mortgage comes in handy. Prequalification points you in the right direction as far as how much you may be eligible to borrow. 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?
