Understanding the Henderson, NC Housing Landscape

Ready to lay down some roots and buy a house in Henderson? Great idea! You picked an energetic 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 serve 3.8 million customers nationwide and know the Henderson housing market well.

Henderson'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 beckon young families, new businesses, and retirees to the Henderson area, but so much change also means more traffic, more competition, and a need for more schools. Even so, Henderson and its neighboring areas still offer a wide range of home styles and prices. You can find single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and (ideally) your dream home! When buying a home in Henderson, consider the home's location in relation to your everyday activities. If you can, drive the route you'd take from the house to your school, office, and favorite hangout spot. The location of your house will impact virtually every part of your life. Traveling around Henderson will also give you an idea of why homes in west Henderson are priced differently than homes in east Henderson, what the neighborhoods are like, and where to find Henderson's hottest attractions.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Henderson? Reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you don't know how to go about answering that question. We think the dream of homeownership should never fade and try our best to make the journey easier and more rewarding. You don't even have to stick with your decision to buy a house in Henderson. We support first-time homeowners and experienced homeowners alike. Read through the following steps to help you determine if you're financially ready to buy a home in Henderson.

First, calculate how much house you can afford. This will help you narrow your search when house hunting in Henderson. Next, add up the 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 Henderson averages will usually give you some solid estimates. Remember that the bulk of your monthly homeowner expenses could be your monthly mortgage payment.

Now, consider how much you can contribute to a down payment. Placing a minimum of 20% down can 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 will give you an idea of how much you might qualify to borrow. Also, check your credit. Credit history is an important part of your mortgage application. The healthier your credit is, the more mortgage options you may have open to you— and who doesn't want more choices in life?
