Henderson is growing by the day, which means Henderson homes don't always come cheap. Ongoing economic growth and cultural expansion have helped to entice entrepreneurs, retirees, and new graduates to the Henderson area, but so much change also means more traffic, more competition, and a need for more schools. Even so, Henderson and its nearby areas still offer a variety of home styles and prices. You can find townhomes, condos, single-family homes, duplexes, and (ideally) your perfect home! When looking to buy a house in Henderson, consider how near or far away the home is from the places you visit most. If you can, test drive your route to work, school, and the grocery store. Your house's location will affect everything, from your morning routine to how you spend your evenings. Traveling around Henderson will also give you an idea of why homes in west Henderson are priced differently than homes in east Henderson, what the neighborhoods are like, and where to find Henderson's hottest attractions.

Are your finances in the right place to buy a home in Henderson? Contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you're unsure of your answer. We think the dream of homeownership should never fade and try our best to make the journey easier and more rewarding. It doesn't matter whether you want to buy a home in Kentucky or somewhere else entirely. We work with experienced homeowners and first-time homeowners alike. Walk through the following steps to help you determine if you're financially ready to buy a home in Henderson.

First, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help determine the price range for your Henderson house hunt. 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. Searching the web for Henderson averages will usually give you a solid estimate, though everyone's situation is different. Remember that the bulk of your monthly homeowner expenses could be your monthly mortgage payment.

Now, figure out what a realistic down payment would be for you. A down payment of at least 20% can help boost your odds of getting a good 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. 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 options are always a good thing!
