Exploring Manchester, NH From North to South

Ready to lay down some roots and buy a house in Manchester? Awesome! You've chosen an energetic city with a great balance of educational opportunities, businesses, and parks, and we're here to help make your home purchase and move a little easier. We service 3.8 million customers across the country and are familiar with the ins-and-outs of the Manchester housing market.

Manchester'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. Ongoing economic growth and cultural expansion have helped to attract young families, new businesses, and retirees to the Manchester area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. Despite this, Manchester and its neighboring areas still offer a wide range of homes in price and amenities. You can find duplexes, single-family homes, townhomes, condos, and (hopefully) your dream home! When buying a house in Manchester, 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. The location of your house will impact virtually every part of your life. Traveling around Manchester will also give you an idea of why homes in west Manchester are priced differently than homes in east Manchester, what the communities are like, and where to find Manchester's coolest attractions.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Manchester? Contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you're unsure of your answer. We believe everyone can find their dream home and work to make the journey less worrisome and more rewarding every step of the way. It doesn't matter whether you want to buy a home in New Hampshire or somewhere else entirely. We help new and experienced homeowners alike. Start with the following steps to help you see if you're in a good financial position to buy a house in Manchester.

Before anything else, calculate how much house you can afford. This will help you set a price range while house shopping in Manchester. Next, add up the potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, home repairs, homeowners association fees, etc.). No need to have an exact amount. Searching the web for Manchester averages will usually give you a solid estimate, though everyone's situation is different. Keep in mind that your monthly mortgage payment could make up the bulk of your monthly home expenses.

Next, consider how much you can contribute to a down payment. A down payment of at least 20% can help 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. This is where getting prequalified for a mortgage comes in handy. Getting prequalified helps you know how much you might be eligible to borrow from a lender. Also, take a good look at 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!
