Understanding the Groton, MA Housing Landscape

Thinking about buying a home in Groton? Congratulations! You selected a lively city with a dynamic selection of businesses, schools, restaurants and parks, and we're here to help make your house hunt, purchase, and move more streamlined. We serve 3.8 million customers nationwide and know the Groton housing market well.

Groton is growing by the day, which means Groton homes don't always come cheap. Continued economic growth and cultural expansion have helped to beckon young families, new businesses, and retirees to the Groton area, but so much change also means more traffic, more competition, and a need for more schools. Even so, Groton and the surrounding areas still offer a variety of home types and prices. You can find townhomes, condos, single-family homes, duplexes, and (hopefully) your dream house! When buying a house in Groton, consider the home's location in relation to your everyday activities. If possible, test drive your route to work, school, and the grocery store. Your home's location will influence almost every aspect of your life. Exploring Groton will also help you get a feel for how homes in east Groton differ from west Groton, what the neighborhoods are like, and where to find Groton's hottest attractions.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Groton? Reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you don't know how to go about answering that question. We think the dream of homeownership should never fade and work to make every stage of the journey more enjoyable and less worrisome. It doesn't matter whether you want to buy a home in Massachusetts or somewhere else entirely. We work with first-time homeowners and experienced 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 Groton.

Before anything else, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you narrow your search when house hunting in Groton. After that, add up the potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, homeowners association fees, home repairs, etc.). No need to have an exact amount. While everyone's situation is different, an online search for Groton averages will usually give you some solid estimates. Keep in mind that your monthly mortgage payment could make up the bulk of your monthly home expenses.

Now, consider how much you can contribute to a down payment. Placing a minimum of 20% down can boost your chances of getting a favorable 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. 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. Credit history is one of the main factors that lenders look at when considering your mortgage application. You may be presented with more mortgage options if you have healthy credit— and more options are always good!
