Understanding the Louisville, CO Housing Landscape

Strongly considering a home purchase in Louisville? Awesome! You selected a colorful city with an ideal amount of businesses, schools, restaurants 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 know the Louisville housing market well.

Given all of Colorado's growth, Louisville homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Continued economic growth and cultural expansion have helped to beckon young families, new businesses, and retirees to the Louisville area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. That said, Louisville and its neighboring areas still offer a wide range of homes in price and amenities. You can find duplexes, single-family homes, townhomes, condos, and (ideally) your perfect home! When looking to buy a house in Louisville, consider the home's location in relation to your everyday activities. If possible, test drive your route to work, school, and the grocery store. Your house's location will affect everything, from your morning routine to how you spend your evenings. Exploring Louisville will also help you get a feel for how homes in east Louisville differ from west Louisville, what the communities are like, and where to find Louisville's coolest attractions.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Louisville? Contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you're unsure of your answer. We think the dream of homeownership should never fade 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 Colorado or somewhere else entirely. We work with first-time homeowners and experienced homeowners alike. Start with the following steps to help you figure out if your finances are in the right place to buy a house in Louisville.

Before anything else, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you set a price range while house shopping in Louisville. Next, jot down your potential monthly payments (including home repairs, insurance, homeowners association fees, property taxes, etc.). It's okay if these numbers are educated guesses. Everyone's situation will differ, but a quick online search for average expenses in Louisville will usually point you in the right direction. Remember that the bulk of your monthly homeowner expenses could be your monthly mortgage payment.

Now, figure out what a realistic down payment would be for you. Placing a minimum of 20% down can improve your odds of getting a good rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). That said, the required down payment will depend on the type of loan you get. Here's where it can help to get prequalified for a mortgage. 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?
