We serve 3.8 million customers nationwide and know the Milton housing market well.

Milton'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 economic growth and cultural expansion have helped to entice entrepreneurs, retirees, and new graduates to the Milton area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. That said, Milton and the surrounding areas still offer a wide range of home types and prices. You can find single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and (hopefully) your dream house! When looking to buy a house in Milton, double check that you're factoring in the home's distance from your daily activities. 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. Traveling around Milton will also give you an idea of why homes in west Milton are priced differently than homes in east Milton, what the communities are like, and where to find Milton's coolest attractions.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Milton? If you're not sure how to answer that question, contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional. We believe everyone can find their dream home and try our best to make the journey easier and more rewarding. You could choose to buy a home in Massachusetts or elsewhere. We serve experienced homeowners and first-time homeowners alike. Read through the following steps to help you see if you're in a good financial position to buy a house in Milton.

First, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you set a price range while house shopping in Milton. Then, jot down your 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 Milton averages will usually give you some solid estimates. Keep in mind that a mortgage payment could make up the majority of most homeowners’ monthly household 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 great 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. 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. The healthier your credit is, the more mortgage options you may have open to you— and who doesn't want more choices in life?
