Understanding the Huntsville, TX Housing Landscape

Strongly considering a home purchase in Huntsville? Smart move! You picked a lively city with a dynamic selection 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 from coast to coast and know the Huntsville housing market well.

Given all of Texas's growth, Huntsville homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Sustained support for local businesses and cultural growth have helped to beckon retirees, new businesses, and young families to the Huntsville area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. Even so, Huntsville and the surrounding areas still offer a wide range of home types and prices. You can find duplexes, single-family homes, townhomes, condos, and (fingers-crossed) your perfect home! When buying a house in Huntsville, double check that you're factoring in the home's distance from your daily activities. 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. Traveling around Huntsville will also give you an idea of why homes in west Huntsville are priced differently than homes in east Huntsville, where to find Huntsville's most popular attractions, and what the neighborhoods are like.

Are your finances in the right place to buy a home in Huntsville? If you're not sure how to answer that question, contact a Mr. Cooper Mortgage Professional. We believe in keeping the dream of homeownership alive and try our best to make the journey easier and more rewarding. It doesn't matter whether you want to buy a home in Texas or somewhere else entirely. We work with new and experienced 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 Huntsville.

First, estimate how much house you can afford. This will help you set a price range while house shopping in Huntsville. Then, map out your potential monthly payments (including property taxes, insurance, home repairs, homeowners association fees, etc.). You don't need an exact amount for these expenses. Everyone's situation will differ, but a quick online search for average expenses in Huntsville 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.

Next, 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 helps you know how much you might be eligible to borrow from a lender. 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 who doesn't want more choices in life?
