Understanding the Huntington Beach, CA Housing Landscape

Thinking about buying a home in Huntington Beach? Congratulations! You selected a lively city with an ideal amount of educational opportunities, businesses, and parks, and we're here to help the home purchase process go a little smoother. We serve 3.8 million customers across the country and have the inside scoop on Huntington Beach's housing scene.

Given all of California's growth, Huntington Beach homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Continued cultural expansion and economic growth have helped to entice entrepreneurs, retirees, and new graduates to the Huntington Beach area, but that much change also highlights the need for better infrastructure, larger schools, and a more diverse housing market. That said, Huntington Beach and its neighboring areas still offer an array of home styles and prices. You can find duplexes, single-family homes, townhomes, condos, and (hopefully) your dream house! When looking to buy a house in Huntington Beach, consider how near or far away the home is from the places you visit most. If possible, test drive your route to work, school, and the grocery store. Your home's location will influence almost every aspect of your life. Traveling around Huntington Beach will also give you an idea of why homes in west Huntington Beach are priced differently than homes in east Huntington Beach, where to find Huntington Beach's most popular attractions, and what the neighborhoods are like.

Are your finances in the right place to buy a home in Huntington Beach? 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 every stage of the journey more enjoyable and less worrisome. You don't even have to stick with your decision to buy a house in Huntington Beach. We work with first-time homeowners and experienced homeowners alike. Read through the following steps to help you see if you're in a good financial position to buy a house in Huntington Beach.

First, calculate how much house you can afford. This will help determine the price range for your Huntington Beach house hunt. After that, add up the potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, home repairs, homeowners association fees, etc.). It's okay if these numbers are educated guesses. Everyone's situation will differ, but a quick online search for average expenses in Huntington Beach 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. Putting at least 20% down will 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. At this stage, getting prequalified for a loan can be extremely helpful. Prequalification points you in the right direction as far as how much you may be eligible 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 more options are always good!
