Understanding the Chesterfield, MO Housing Landscape

Ready to lay down some roots and buy a house in Chesterfield? Congratulations! You selected an energetic city with a dynamic selection of parks, businesses, and educational opportunities, and we're here to help make your house hunt, purchase, and move more streamlined. We serve 3.8 million customers nationwide and are familiar with the ins-and-outs of the Chesterfield housing market.

Chesterfield'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. Continued cultural expansion and economic growth have helped to attract young families, new businesses, and retirees to the Chesterfield area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. Despite this, Chesterfield and its neighboring areas still offer a wide range of home types and prices. You can find townhomes, condos, single-family homes, duplexes, and (ideally) your perfect home! When buying a house in Chesterfield, consider how near or far away the home is from the places you visit most. 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. Discovering different parts of Chesterfield will help you see how the northern part differs from the southern part, what the neighborhoods are like, and where to find Chesterfield's hottest attractions.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Chesterfield? Reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you don't know how to go about answering that question. 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 Missouri or elsewhere. We support 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 Chesterfield.

Before anything else, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you narrow your search when house hunting in Chesterfield. Then, jot down your potential monthly payments (including home repairs, insurance, homeowners association fees, property taxes, etc.). It's okay if these numbers are educated guesses. Searching the web for Chesterfield 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, figure out what a realistic down payment would be for you. Putting at least 20% down will boost your odds of getting a good rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). That said, the minimum down payment requirements depend on the type of loan. Here's where it can help to get prequalified for a mortgage. Prequalification points you in the right direction as far as how much you may be eligible to borrow. Also, consider your credit profile. 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 who doesn't want more choices in life?
