Understanding the Norcross, GA Housing Landscape

Thinking about buying a home in Norcross? Great idea! You selected a lively city with an ideal amount of parks, businesses, and educational opportunities, and we're here to help make your house hunt, purchase, and move more streamlined. We serve 3.8 million customers nationwide and know the Norcross housing market well.

Norcross'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 cultural expansion and economic growth have helped to beckon young families, new businesses, and retirees to the Norcross area, but so much change also means more traffic, more competition, and a need for more schools. Even so, Norcross and its nearby areas still offer an array of home styles and prices. You can find single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and (fingers-crossed) your dream home! When buying a home in Norcross, consider how near or far away the home is from the places you visit most. If possible, test drive your trip from the house to work, school, and the grocery store. Your home's location will influence almost every aspect of your life. Discovering different parts of Norcross will help you see how the northern part differs from the southern part, where to find Norcross's most popular attractions, and what the neighborhoods are like.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Norcross? Reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you don't know how to go about answering that question. We believe in keeping the dream of homeownership alive and work to make every stage of the journey more enjoyable and less worrisome. You could choose to buy a home in Georgia or elsewhere. We help experienced homeowners and first-time 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 Norcross.

First, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help determine the price range for your Norcross house hunt. Then, add up the potential monthly payments (including home repairs, insurance, homeowners association fees, property taxes, etc.). You don't need an exact amount for these expenses. While everyone's situation is different, an online search for Norcross averages will usually give you some solid estimates. Keep in mind that your monthly mortgage payment could make up the bulk of your monthly home expenses.

Now, look at how much money you can put toward a down payment. Putting at least 20% down will improve your chances of getting a favorable 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. Getting prequalified helps you know how much you might be eligible to borrow from a lender. Also, check your credit. Credit history is an important part of your mortgage application. The healthier your credit is, the more mortgage options you may have open to you— and more options are always good!
