Understanding the Bloomingdale, IL Housing Landscape

Thinking about buying a home in Bloomingdale? Congratulations! You selected a lively city with a dynamic selection of businesses, schools, restaurants and parks, and we're here to help make your home purchase and move a little easier. We serve 3.8 million customers across the country and are familiar with the ins-and-outs of the Bloomingdale housing market.

Bloomingdale'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 support for local businesses and cultural growth have helped to entice young families, new businesses, and retirees to the Bloomingdale area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. That said, Bloomingdale and its neighboring areas still offer an array of home types and prices. You can find single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and (hopefully) your perfect home! When buying a house in Bloomingdale, consider the home's location in relation to your everyday activities. 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. Traveling around Bloomingdale will also give you an idea of why homes in west Bloomingdale are priced differently than homes in east Bloomingdale, what the communities are like, and where to find Bloomingdale's coolest attractions.

You're ready to buy a house in Bloomingdale, 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 work to make every stage of the journey more enjoyable and less worrisome. You could choose to buy a home in Illinois or elsewhere. We serve first-time homeowners and experienced homeowners alike. Start with the following steps to help you figure out if your finances are in the right place to buy a house in Bloomingdale.

Before anything else, calculate how much house you can afford. This will help determine the price range for your Bloomingdale house hunt. Next, map out your potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, home repairs, homeowners association fees, etc.). You don't need an exact amount for these expenses. While everyone's situation is different, an online search for Bloomingdale averages will usually give you some solid estimates. 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 improve your odds of getting a good rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). That said, the required down payment will depend on the type of loan you get. 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, check your credit. Lenders place a high importance on credit history when looking at your mortgage application. The healthier your credit is, the more mortgage options you may have open to you— and who doesn't want more choices in life?
