Exploring Alexandria, IN From North to South

Thinking about buying a home in Alexandria? Smart move! You've chosen a vibrant 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 serve 3.8 million customers nationwide and know the Alexandria housing market well.

Alexandria'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 economic growth and cultural expansion have helped to entice retirees, new businesses, and young families to the Alexandria area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. Even so, Alexandria and its neighboring areas still offer a variety of home types and prices. You can find single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and (hopefully) your dream home! When buying a house in Alexandria, 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. Exploring Alexandria will also help you get a feel for how homes in east Alexandria differ from west Alexandria, what the neighborhoods are like, and where to find Alexandria's hottest attractions.

Are your finances in the right place to buy a home in Alexandria? If you're not sure how to answer that question, contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional. We think the dream of homeownership should never fade and work to make the journey less worrisome and more rewarding every step of the way. You could choose to buy a home in Indiana or elsewhere. We work with first-time homeowners and experienced homeowners alike. Walk through the following steps to help you determine if you're financially ready to buy a home in Alexandria.

First, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you narrow your search when house hunting in Alexandria. Then, add up the 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 Alexandria 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 increase your chances of getting a great rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). That said, down payment requirements can differ depending on the loan type. At this stage, getting prequalified for a loan can be extremely helpful. Getting prequalified helps you know how much you might be eligible to borrow from a lender. Also, take a good look at your credit. Credit history is an important part of your mortgage application. The better your credit is, the more mortgage options you may be presented with— and who doesn't want more choices in life?
