Understanding the Delray Beach, FL Housing Landscape

Ready to lay down some roots and buy a house in Delray Beach? Smart move! You picked a lively city with a great balance of businesses, schools, restaurants and parks, and we're here to help make your house hunt, purchase, and move more streamlined. We serve 3.8 million customers nationwide and are familiar with the ins-and-outs of the Delray Beach housing market.

Given all of Florida's growth, Delray Beach homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Continued cultural expansion and economic growth have helped to attract retirees, new businesses, and young families to the Delray Beach area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. That said, Delray Beach and its nearby areas still offer a variety of home types and prices. You can find townhomes, condos, single-family homes, duplexes, and (ideally) your perfect home! When buying a home in Delray Beach, 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. The location of your house will impact virtually every part of your life. Exploring Delray Beach will also help you get a feel for how homes in east Delray Beach differ from west Delray Beach, where to find Delray Beach's most popular attractions, and what the neighborhoods are like.

You're ready to buy a house in Delray Beach, but is your bank account? Contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you're unsure of your answer. We think the dream of homeownership should never fade and try our best to make the journey easier and more rewarding. You could choose to buy a home in Florida or elsewhere. We serve new and experienced homeowners alike. Walk through the following steps to help you figure out if your finances are in the right place to buy a house in Delray Beach.

Before anything else, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you narrow your search when house hunting in Delray Beach. Next, map out your potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, homeowners association fees, home repairs, etc.). You don't need an exact amount for these expenses. While everyone's situation is different, an online search for Delray Beach averages will usually give you some solid estimates. Remember that the bulk of your monthly homeowner expenses could be your monthly mortgage payment.

Now, consider how much you can contribute to a down payment. Putting at least 20% down will boost your chances of getting a great rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). Even so, the required down payment will depend on the type of loan you get. This is where getting prequalified for a mortgage comes in handy. Prequalification points you in the right direction as far as how much you may be eligible to borrow. Also, check your credit. Credit history is one of the main factors that lenders look at when considering your mortgage application. You may be presented with more mortgage options if you have healthy credit— and options are always a good thing!
