Exploring Farmington, NM From North to South

Thinking about buying a home in Farmington? Smart move! You picked a lively city with a great balance of educational opportunities, businesses, and parks, and we're here to help make your house hunt, purchase, and move more streamlined. We service 3.8 million customers across the country and know the Farmington housing market well.

Farmington is growing by the day, which means Farmington homes don't always come cheap. Ongoing economic growth and cultural expansion have helped to beckon entrepreneurs, retirees, and new graduates to the Farmington area, but so much change also means more traffic, more competition, and a need for more schools. Even so, Farmington and the surrounding areas still offer an array of home styles and prices. You can find duplexes, single-family homes, townhomes, condos, and (ideally) your dream house! When buying a house in Farmington, double check that you're factoring in the home's distance from your daily activities. If you can, test drive your trip from the house 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 Farmington will help you see how the northern part differs from the southern part, what the communities are like, and where to find Farmington's coolest attractions.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Farmington? 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 every stage of the journey more enjoyable and less worrisome. You could choose to buy a home in New Mexico or elsewhere. We work with new 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 Farmington.

First, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you set a price range while house shopping in Farmington. Then, 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 Farmington 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. A down payment of at least 20% can help increase your chances of getting a great rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). Even so, the required down payment will depend on the type of loan you get. Here's where it can help to get prequalified for a mortgage. Getting prequalified will give you an idea of how much you might qualify to borrow. Also, check your credit. Lenders place a high importance on credit history when looking at 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?
