Exploring Flint, MI From North to South

Strongly considering a home purchase in Flint? Awesome!

We serve 3.8 million customers across the country and know the Flint housing market well.

Flint is growing by the day, which means Flint homes don't always come cheap. Sustained cultural expansion and economic growth have helped to beckon entrepreneurs, retirees, and new graduates to the Flint area, but so much change also means more traffic, more competition, and a need for more schools. Despite this, Flint and its neighboring areas still offer an array of home types and prices. You can find townhomes, condos, single-family homes, duplexes, and (ideally) your perfect home! When looking to buy a house in Flint, consider how near or far away the home is from the places you visit most. If possible, drive the route you'd take from the house to your school, office, and favorite hangout spot. The location of your house will impact virtually every part of your life. Discovering different parts of Flint will help you see how the northern part differs from the southern part, what the neighborhoods are like, and where to find Flint's hottest attractions.

You're ready to buy a house in Flint, but is your bank account? 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. You could choose to buy a home in Michigan or elsewhere. We work with first-time homeowners and experienced homeowners alike. Start with the following steps to help you figure out if your finances are in the right place to buy a house in Flint.

First, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you narrow your search when house hunting in Flint. Next, add up the potential monthly payments (including home repairs, insurance, homeowners association fees, property taxes, etc.). You don't need an exact amount for these expenses. Searching the web for Flint 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.

Next, 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). Even so, down payment requirements can differ depending on the loan type. This is where getting prequalified for a mortgage comes in handy. Getting prequalified will give you an idea of how much you might qualify to borrow. Also, check 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 options are always a good thing!
