Exploring Berwyn, IL From North to South

Strongly considering a home purchase in Berwyn? Awesome! You selected a colorful city with an ideal amount of educational opportunities, businesses, and parks, and we're here to help the home purchase process go a little smoother. We serve 3.8 million customers from coast to coast and are familiar with the ins-and-outs of the Berwyn housing market.

Berwyn'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. Ongoing cultural expansion and economic growth have helped to entice retirees, new businesses, and young families to the Berwyn area, but so much change also means more traffic, more competition, and a need for more schools. Despite this, Berwyn and its neighboring areas still offer a variety of home styles and prices. You can find townhomes, condos, single-family homes, duplexes, and (fingers-crossed) your dream house! When looking to buy a house in Berwyn, 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. The location of your house will impact virtually every part of your life. Exploring Berwyn will also help you get a feel for how homes in east Berwyn differ from west Berwyn, where to find Berwyn's most popular attractions, and what the neighborhoods are like.

Are your finances in the right place to buy a home in Berwyn? Contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you're unsure of your answer. We believe in keeping the dream of homeownership alive and try our best to make the journey easier and more rewarding. You could choose to buy a home in Illinois or elsewhere. We work with experienced homeowners and first-time homeowners alike. Read through the following steps to help you see if you're in a good financial position to buy a house in Berwyn.

Before anything else, calculate how much house you can afford. This will help determine the price range for your Berwyn house hunt. After that, jot down your potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, homeowners association fees, home repairs, etc.). You don't need an exact amount for these expenses. Searching the web for Berwyn 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.

Now, look at how much money you can put toward a down payment. 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). Even so, the minimum down payment requirements depend on the type of loan. 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, consider your credit profile. Lenders place a high importance on credit history when looking at your mortgage application. You may be presented with more mortgage options if you have healthy credit— and options are always a good thing!
