Exploring Cambridge, OH From North to South

Thinking about buying a home in Cambridge? Awesome! You've chosen an energetic city with an ideal amount of businesses, schools, restaurants and parks, and we're here to help make your home purchase and move a little easier. We service 3.8 million customers nationwide and know the Cambridge housing market well.

Given all of Ohio's growth, Cambridge homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Sustained cultural expansion and economic growth have helped to beckon retirees, new businesses, and young families to the Cambridge area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. Despite this, Cambridge and the surrounding areas still offer a variety of home types and prices. You can find duplexes, single-family homes, townhomes, condos, and (fingers-crossed) your dream house! When looking to buy a house in Cambridge, double check that you're factoring in the home's distance from your daily activities. If you can, 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. Discovering different parts of Cambridge will help you see how the northern part differs from the southern part, what the communities are like, and where to find Cambridge's coolest attractions.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in Cambridge? Reach out to a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you don't know how to go about answering that question. We believe everyone can find their dream home 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 Cambridge. We serve 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 Cambridge.

Before anything else, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you narrow your search when house hunting in Cambridge. After that, 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 Cambridge 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.

Now, figure out what a realistic down payment would be for you. Putting at least 20% down will increase your chances of getting a great rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). However, the minimum down payment requirements depend on the type of loan. 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 better your credit is, the more mortgage options you may be presented with— and more options are always good!
