Ready to lay down some roots and buy a house in Burley? Congratulations! You picked a lively city with a dynamic selection of businesses, schools, restaurants and parks, and we're here to help the home purchase process go a little smoother. We service 3.8 million customers from coast to coast and know the Burley housing market well.

Given all of Idaho's growth, Burley homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Ongoing support for local businesses and cultural growth have helped to attract entrepreneurs, retirees, and new graduates to the Burley area, but so much change also means more traffic, more competition, and a need for more schools. That said, Burley and the surrounding areas still offer an array of home styles and prices. You can find single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and (ideally) your perfect home! When buying a house in Burley, consider how near or far away the home is from the places you visit most. If you can, test drive your trip from the house to work, school, and the grocery store. The location of your house will impact virtually every part of your life. Discovering different parts of Burley will help you see how the northern part differs from the southern part, what the neighborhoods are like, and where to find Burley's hottest attractions.

You're ready to buy a house in Burley, but is your bank account? If you're not sure how to answer that question, contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional. We believe everyone can find their dream home and work to make the journey less worrisome and more rewarding every step of the way. You could choose to buy a home in Idaho or elsewhere. We work with first-time homeowners and experienced homeowners alike. Start with the following steps to help you see if you're in a good financial position to buy a house in Burley.

Before anything else, calculate how much house you can afford. This will help determine the price range for your Burley house hunt. After that, jot down your potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, home repairs, homeowners association fees, etc.). No need to have an exact amount. Searching the web for Burley averages will usually give you a solid estimate, though everyone's situation is different. Keep in mind that your monthly mortgage payment could make up the bulk of your monthly home expenses.

Then, look at how much money you can put toward 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, down payment requirements can differ depending on the loan type. At this stage, getting prequalified for a loan can be extremely helpful. Prequalification points you in the right direction as far as how much you may be eligible to borrow. Also, take a good look at your credit. Credit history is an important part of your mortgage application. You may be presented with more mortgage options if you have healthy credit— and more options are always good!
