Understanding the Paradise, CA Housing Landscape

Thinking about buying a home in Paradise? Great idea! You selected a vibrant city with a dynamic selection of businesses, schools, restaurants and parks, and we're here to help make your house hunt, purchase, and move more streamlined. We support 3.8 million customers across the country and know the Paradise housing market well.

Given all of California's growth, Paradise homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Sustained economic growth and cultural expansion have helped to entice retirees, new businesses, and young families to the Paradise area, but so much change also means more traffic, more competition, and a need for more schools. Even so, Paradise and its neighboring areas still offer a wide range of home styles and prices. You can find townhomes, condos, single-family homes, duplexes, and (fingers-crossed) your dream home! When buying a house in Paradise, consider the home's location in relation to your everyday 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. Exploring Paradise will also help you get a feel for how homes in east Paradise differ from west Paradise, what the communities are like, and where to find Paradise's coolest attractions.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Paradise? If you're not sure how to answer that question, contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional. 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 California or elsewhere. We support experienced homeowners and first-time homeowners alike. Read through the following steps to help you determine if you're financially ready to buy a home in Paradise.

Before anything else, calculate how much house you can afford. This will help you narrow your search when house hunting in Paradise. Then, map out your potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, homeowners association fees, home repairs, etc.). No need to have an exact amount. While everyone's situation is different, an online search for Paradise averages will usually give you some solid estimates. Remember that the bulk of your monthly homeowner expenses could be your monthly mortgage payment.

Next, consider how much you can contribute to a down payment. A down payment of at least 20% can help increase 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. Here's where it can help to get prequalified for a mortgage. Getting prequalified will give you an idea of how much you might qualify to borrow. Also, take a good look at 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?
