Exploring Centerville, UT From North to South

Ready to lay down some roots and buy a house in Centerville? Smart move! You picked a vibrant city with an ideal amount of parks, businesses, and educational opportunities, and we're here to help the home purchase process go a little smoother. We service 3.8 million customers nationwide and are familiar with the ins-and-outs of the Centerville housing market.

Given all of Utah's growth, Centerville homes aren't always easy to find at a comfortable price. Ongoing economic growth and cultural expansion have helped to beckon young families, new businesses, and retirees to the Centerville area, but so much change also means a strain on housing options, school capacities, and city roads. Even so, Centerville and its neighboring areas still offer a wide range of home types and prices. You can find townhomes, condos, single-family homes, duplexes, and (fingers-crossed) your dream home! When looking to buy a house in Centerville, 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 Centerville will also give you an idea of why homes in west Centerville are priced differently than homes in east Centerville, what the neighborhoods are like, and where to find Centerville's hottest attractions.

You're ready to buy a house in Centerville, but is your bank account? 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 work to make every stage of the journey more enjoyable and less worrisome. You could choose to buy a home in Utah or elsewhere. We help experienced homeowners and first-time homeowners alike. Walk through the following steps to help you see if you're in a good financial position to buy a house in Centerville.

First, calculate how much house you can afford. This will help determine the price range for your Centerville house hunt. Next, add up the potential monthly payments (including home repairs, insurance, homeowners association fees, property taxes, 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 Centerville 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.

Now, figure out what a realistic down payment would be for you. Putting at least 20% down will improve 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. 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, consider your credit profile. Credit history is an important part of your mortgage application. The healthier your credit is, the more mortgage options you may have open to you— and more options are always good!
