We service 3.8 million customers nationwide and know the Tualatin housing market well.

Given all of Oregon's growth, Tualatin homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Ongoing support for local businesses and cultural growth have helped to attract retirees, new businesses, and young families to the Tualatin area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. Despite this, Tualatin and the surrounding areas still offer an array of homes in price and amenities. You can find townhomes, condos, single-family homes, duplexes, and (hopefully) your dream house! When buying a home in Tualatin, consider how near or far away the home is from the places you visit most. If you can, test drive your route to work, school, and the grocery store. Your home's location will influence almost every aspect of your life. Discovering different parts of Tualatin will help you see how the northern part differs from the southern part, where to find Tualatin's most popular attractions, and what the neighborhoods are like.

You're ready to buy a house in Tualatin, but is your bank account? Contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional if you're unsure of your answer. We believe in keeping the dream of homeownership alive and work to make every stage of the journey more enjoyable and less worrisome. You don't even have to stick with your decision to buy a house in Tualatin. We support experienced homeowners and first-time homeowners alike. Walk through the following steps to help you figure out if your finances are in the right place to buy a house in Tualatin.

First, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help determine the price range for your Tualatin house hunt. After that, add up the potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, homeowners association fees, home repairs, etc.). No need to have an exact amount. Everyone's situation will differ, but a quick online search for average expenses in Tualatin will usually point you in the right direction. Keep in mind that your monthly mortgage payment could make up the bulk of your monthly home expenses.

Then, figure out what a realistic down payment would be for you. A down payment of at least 20% can help boost your chances of getting a great rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). That said, down payment requirements can differ depending on the loan type. 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. The healthier your credit is, the more mortgage options you may have open to you— and who doesn't want more choices in life?
