Exploring Fraser, MI From North to South

Thinking about buying a home in Fraser? Awesome! You've chosen a lively city with an ideal amount of parks, businesses, and educational opportunities, and we're here to help make your home purchase and move a little easier. We support 3.8 million customers from coast to coast and have the inside scoop on Fraser's housing scene.

Given all of Michigan's growth, Fraser homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Continued support for local businesses and cultural growth have helped to entice entrepreneurs, retirees, and new graduates to the Fraser area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. That said, Fraser and its neighboring areas still offer a wide range of home styles and prices. You can find single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and (ideally) your dream house! When buying a home in Fraser, double check that you're factoring in the home's distance from your daily activities. If possible, 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. Discovering different parts of Fraser will help you see how the northern part differs from the southern part, where to find Fraser's most popular attractions, and what the neighborhoods are like.

Are your finances in the right place to buy a home in Fraser? Contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you're unsure of your answer. We think the dream of homeownership should never fade and work to make the journey less worrisome and more rewarding every step of the way. You could choose to buy a home in Michigan or elsewhere. We work with first-time homeowners and experienced homeowners alike. Read through the following steps to help you see if you're in a good financial position to buy a house in Fraser.

First, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you narrow your search when house hunting in Fraser. Next, add up the potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, homeowners association fees, home repairs, etc.). You don't need an exact amount for these expenses. Everyone's situation will differ, but a quick online search for average expenses in Fraser will usually point you in the right direction. Remember that the bulk of your monthly homeowner expenses could be your monthly mortgage payment.

Now, look at how much money you can put toward a down payment. Putting at least 20% down will increase your chances of getting a favorable rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). Even so, the minimum down payment requirements depend on the type of loan. 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, check your credit. Credit history is an important part of your mortgage application. The better your credit is, the more mortgage options you may be presented with— and options are always a good thing!
