Exploring West Linn, OR From North to South

Thinking about buying a home in West Linn? Great idea! You picked a vibrant city with a great balance 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 across the country and know the West Linn housing market well.

West Linn'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. Sustained support for local businesses and cultural growth have helped to entice young families, new businesses, and retirees to the West Linn area, but so much change also means more traffic, more competition, and a need for more schools. That said, West Linn and its nearby areas still offer a wide range of homes in price and amenities. You can find duplexes, single-family homes, townhomes, condos, and (fingers-crossed) your perfect home! When looking to buy a house in West Linn, consider how near or far away the home is from the places you visit most. If possible, test drive your route to work, school, and the grocery store. Your house's location will affect everything, from your morning routine to how you spend your evenings. Exploring West Linn will also help you get a feel for how homes in east West Linn differ from west West Linn, what the neighborhoods are like, and where to find West Linn's hottest attractions.

Are you financially prepared to buy a house in West Linn? If you're not sure how to answer that question, contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional. We think the dream of homeownership should never fade and work to make every stage of the journey more enjoyable and less worrisome. It doesn't matter whether you want to buy a home in Oregon or somewhere else entirely. We support experienced homeowners and first-time homeowners alike. Read through the following steps to help you determine if you're financially ready to buy a home in West Linn.

First, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help determine the price range for your West Linn house hunt. After that, jot down your potential monthly payments (including home repairs, insurance, homeowners association fees, property taxes, etc.). You don't need an exact amount for these expenses. Searching the web for West Linn 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 increase your chances of getting a favorable rate and will allow you to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). That said, the required down payment will depend on the type of loan you get. At this stage, getting prequalified for a loan can be extremely helpful. 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 who doesn't want more choices in life?
