Exploring Dublin, CA From North to South

Strongly considering a home purchase in Dublin? Great idea! You picked a lively city with a great balance of educational opportunities, businesses, and parks, and we're here to help make your home purchase and move a little easier. We serve 3.8 million customers across the country and are familiar with the ins-and-outs of the Dublin housing market.

Dublin's amazing growth has made it a great place to live. But on the flip side, the growth has also led to a shortage of cheaper homes. Ongoing economic growth and cultural expansion have helped to beckon young families, new businesses, and retirees to the Dublin area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. Even so, Dublin and the surrounding areas still offer a variety of home styles and prices. You can find townhomes, condos, single-family homes, duplexes, and (fingers-crossed) your perfect home! When buying a home in Dublin, double check that you're factoring in the home's distance from your daily activities. If possible, drive the route you'd take from the house to your school, office, and favorite hangout spot. Your house's location will affect everything, from your morning routine to how you spend your evenings. Traveling around Dublin will also give you an idea of why homes in west Dublin are priced differently than homes in east Dublin, where to find Dublin's most popular attractions, and what the neighborhoods are like.

Are your finances in the right place to buy a home in Dublin? Reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you don't know how to go about answering that question. 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. You don't even have to stick with your decision to buy a house in Dublin. We support new and experienced homeowners alike. Read through the following steps to help you figure out if your finances are in the right place to buy a house in Dublin.

Before anything else, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help determine the price range for your Dublin house hunt. Next, add up the potential monthly payments (including home repairs, insurance, homeowners association fees, property taxes, etc.). You don't need an exact amount for these expenses. While everyone's situation is different, an online search for Dublin averages will usually give you some solid estimates. Keep in mind that your monthly mortgage payment could make up the bulk of your monthly home expenses.

Now, figure out what a realistic down payment would be for you. Placing a minimum of 20% down can improve your chances of getting a great rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). However, down payment requirements can differ depending on the loan type. At this stage, getting prequalified for a loan can be extremely helpful. Getting prequalified will give you an idea of how much you might qualify to borrow. Also, take a good look at your credit. Credit history is an important part of your mortgage application. You may be presented with more mortgage options if you have healthy credit— and who doesn't want more choices in life?
