Exploring South Valley, NM From North to South

Ready to lay down some roots and buy a house in South Valley? Great idea! You picked a colorful 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 serve 3.8 million customers across the country and know the South Valley housing market well.

Given all of New Mexico's growth, South Valley homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Sustained cultural expansion and economic growth have helped to attract young families, new businesses, and retirees to the South Valley area, but so much change also means more traffic, more competition, and a need for more schools. That said, South Valley and its nearby areas still offer a wide range of homes in price and amenities. You can find townhomes, condos, single-family homes, duplexes, and (hopefully) your perfect home! When buying a house in South Valley, consider the home's location in relation to your everyday activities. If possible, drive the route you'd take from the house to your school, office, and favorite hangout spot. Your house's location will affect everything, from your morning routine to how you spend your evenings. Exploring South Valley will also help you get a feel for how homes in east South Valley differ from west South Valley, where to find South Valley's most popular attractions, and what the neighborhoods are like.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in South Valley? 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 New Mexico or elsewhere. We help experienced homeowners and first-time homeowners alike. Read through the following steps to help you figure out if your finances are in the right place to buy a house in South Valley.

Before anything else, calculate how much house you can afford. This will help you narrow your search when house hunting in South Valley. Next, map out your potential monthly payments (including home repairs, insurance, homeowners association fees, property taxes, etc.). No need to have an exact amount. Searching the web for South Valley averages will usually give you a solid estimate, though everyone's situation is different. Keep in mind that a mortgage payment could make up the majority of most homeowners’ monthly household expenses.

Next, consider how much you can contribute to 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). Even so, the required down payment will depend on the type of loan you get. This is where getting prequalified for a mortgage comes in handy. 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. Lenders place a high importance on credit history when looking at your mortgage application. The better your credit is, the more mortgage options you may be presented with— and options are always a good thing!
