Understanding the Cherry Hill, NJ Housing Landscape

Strongly considering a home purchase in Cherry Hill? Smart move! You've chosen a vibrant city with an ideal amount of parks, businesses, and educational opportunities, and we're here to help the home purchase process go a little smoother. We service 3.8 million customers nationwide and know the Cherry Hill housing market well.

Given all of New Jersey's growth, Cherry Hill homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Ongoing economic growth and cultural expansion have helped to beckon entrepreneurs, retirees, and new graduates to the Cherry Hill area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. That said, Cherry Hill and its neighboring areas still offer an array of homes in price and amenities. You can find single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and (hopefully) your perfect home! When looking to buy a house in Cherry Hill, 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. Your home's location will influence almost every aspect of your life. Traveling around Cherry Hill will also give you an idea of why homes in west Cherry Hill are priced differently than homes in east Cherry Hill, what the neighborhoods are like, and where to find Cherry Hill's hottest attractions.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Cherry Hill? If you're not sure how to answer that question, contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional. 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 New Jersey or elsewhere. We work with new 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 Cherry Hill.

Before anything else, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you narrow your search when house hunting in Cherry Hill. Next, jot down your potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, homeowners association fees, home repairs, etc.). It's okay if these numbers are educated guesses. While everyone's situation is different, an online search for Cherry Hill averages will usually give you some solid estimates. Remember that the bulk of your monthly homeowner expenses could be your monthly mortgage payment.

Next, look at how much money you can put toward a down payment. A down payment of at least 20% can help improve your chances of getting a favorable rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). However, down payment requirements can differ depending on the loan type. 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, 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!
