Understanding the Tolland, CT Housing Landscape

Ready to lay down some roots and buy a house in Tolland? Congratulations! You selected a lively city with an ideal amount 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 nationwide and know the Tolland housing market well.

Tolland'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. Sustained economic growth and cultural expansion have helped to attract entrepreneurs, retirees, and new graduates to the Tolland area, but so much change also means more traffic, more competition, and a need for more schools. That said, Tolland and its neighboring areas still offer an array of homes in price and amenities. You can find single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and (ideally) your dream home! When buying a home in Tolland, 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 home's location will influence almost every aspect of your life. Exploring Tolland will also help you get a feel for how homes in east Tolland differ from west Tolland, where to find Tolland's most popular attractions, and what the neighborhoods are like.

Are your finances in the right place to buy a home in Tolland? 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. You don't even have to stick with your decision to buy a house in Tolland. We serve 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 Tolland.

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

Then, look at how much money you can put toward a down payment. Putting at least 20% down will boost 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. Getting prequalified will give you an idea of how much you might qualify to borrow. Also, consider your credit profile. 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?
