Understanding the Marion, IN Housing Landscape

Ready to lay down some roots and buy a house in Marion? Awesome! You've chosen a vibrant city with a great balance of businesses, schools, restaurants and parks, and we're here to help make your home purchase and move a little easier. We service 3.8 million customers across the country and are familiar with the ins-and-outs of the Marion housing market.

Given all of Indiana's growth, Marion homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Continued support for local businesses and cultural growth have helped to attract retirees, new businesses, and young families to the Marion area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. That said, Marion and its neighboring areas still offer a variety of homes in price and amenities. You can find duplexes, single-family homes, townhomes, condos, and (hopefully) your dream home! When buying a house in Marion, 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. Your house's location will affect everything, from your morning routine to how you spend your evenings. Exploring Marion will also help you get a feel for how homes in east Marion differ from west Marion, what the communities are like, and where to find Marion's coolest attractions.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Marion? Contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you're unsure of your answer. We believe everyone can find their dream home and work to make every stage of the journey more enjoyable and less worrisome. You could choose to buy a home in Indiana 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 Marion.

First, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you narrow your search when house hunting in Marion. Then, 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 Marion averages will usually give you a solid estimate, though everyone's situation is different. Keep in mind that a mortgage payment could make up the majority of most homeowners’ monthly household expenses.

Then, look at how much money you can put toward a down payment. A down payment of at least 20% can help increase your chances of getting a favorable rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). However, 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, consider your credit profile. Lenders place a high importance on credit history when looking at 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?
