Understanding the Oxford, OH Housing Landscape

Thinking about buying a home in Oxford? Smart move! You selected an energetic city with a dynamic selection of businesses, schools, restaurants 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 Oxford housing market well.

Given all of Ohio's growth, Oxford homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Sustained support for local businesses and cultural growth have helped to attract entrepreneurs, retirees, and new graduates to the Oxford area, but that much change also highlights the need for better infrastructure, larger schools, and a more diverse housing market. That said, Oxford and the surrounding areas still offer a variety of home types and prices. You can find townhomes, condos, single-family homes, duplexes, and (ideally) your dream house! When looking to buy a house in Oxford, consider how near or far away the home is from the places you visit most. If possible, test drive your trip from the house to work, school, and the grocery store. The location of your house will impact virtually every part of your life. Discovering different parts of Oxford will help you see how the northern part differs from the southern part, what the neighborhoods are like, and where to find Oxford's hottest attractions.

Are your finances in the right place to buy a home in Oxford? 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 work to make the journey less worrisome and more rewarding every step of the way. You could choose to buy a home in Ohio or elsewhere. We help new and experienced homeowners alike. Walk through the following steps to help you determine if you're financially ready to buy a home in Oxford.

First, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you set a price range while house shopping in Oxford. Next, add up the potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, home repairs, homeowners association fees, etc.). It's okay if these numbers are educated guesses. Searching the web for Oxford 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, consider how much you can contribute to a down payment. Putting at least 20% down will improve your odds of getting a good 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. 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. Credit history is one of the main factors that lenders look at when considering your mortgage application. You may be presented with more mortgage options if you have healthy credit— and options are always a good thing!
