Homebuying Pre-Qualification

November 13, 2013

ImageAs early in the home buying process as possible, you should apply to become pre-qualified with a mortgage company.   The first step in this process is filling out a pre-qualification form for the mortgage company.  Depending on your income and credit history, you will be “pre-qualified” for a certain purchase price.

The mortgage company uses the information you provide, along with a copy of your credit report, to estimate the amount of mortgage for which you may qualify.  This is called a pre-approval, or the maximum amount the mortgage company is willing to lend, which will help guide you in determining which homes you will be able to purchase. At this point, you are ready to begin the exciting journey of selecting your new home! There is no need to bring in documentation at this stage.

It is not necessary to have a specific home or property in mind before you start the pre-approval process. Click on the link to our mortgage company’s prequalification form to get started!

To Meadow Creek and Beyond….

March 13, 2013

ImageIn June of 2012, Stylecraft Builders opened a new section in the Meadow Creek Community in College Station, off of Koppe Bridge Road. This new phase created 38 new homesites, and we are now down to just 1 home. Stylecraft is just about to open its final phase in Meadow Creek!!!! It will have 59 available lots, with a handful of cul-de-sac lots. We just started pre-selling the lots and already have sold 2.

Moving into a new home doesn’t get any easier, or better, than this! With just $500*, you can move into Meadow Creek, College Station’s most affordable new home community. While close to everything the city has to offer, you can still enjoy a peaceful neighborhood, with a community pool, playground, and basketball court. Homes in this neighborhood range from 1,078 to 2,560 square feet, with pricing starting in the $120’s and the added value of no city taxes.

If you are ready to take the next step, give Tanner Brewster a call or text at 979-777-0998.

*Our $500 Move-In is available through Stylecraft Builders’ lender, Wallick & Volk, with a USDA loan.

New Home or Resale: Which is the Smarter Investment????

March 6, 2013

When you decide to buy a home—and, incidentally, there are so many reasons to do so now! Do you know what you are getting for your money? Are you focusing on purchasing an existing home because you think you can get a better “deal”?Image

The truth is, the sale price of a resale is often only the beginning. You’ll likely have to invest in repairs—cosmetic or structural. Depending on the age of the house, you might be looking at replacing the roof, flooring, major appliances, furnace, water heater, or other items that last only a finite number of years. What kind of structural repairs are you facing? Do you know the condition of the underlying support system (foundation, beams, etc.)? And how responsible was the previous owner? Did he ignore basic maintenance or perhaps cut corners on repairs?

Once you add up the extra costs associated with bringing a resale up to your standards, you might find yourself regretting that you didn’t opt for a brand new home. Consider these advantages of purchasing a new home:

  1. Picture perfect. You’re not at the mercy of the previous owner’s choices. You can choose everything in advance: location, floor plan, windows, trims, flooring, appliances, light fixtures, window treatments, colors, and even the landscaping.
  2. Move-in condition. You won’t need to spend time or money on changes and repairs after the sale.
  3. Warranties. With a new home, you gain the peace of mind that comes with having everything under warranty: the house itself, as well as the appliances, flooring, and heating and air conditioning systems.
  4. Energy efficiency. Starting from the ground up allows you to incorporate energy efficient systems into your home—rather than attempt a retrofit—so you enjoy continued comfort and savings (including a tax credit for owning an energy efficient home).
  5. Low maintenance. New homes are built with the latest in technology and materials, designed for greater durability and low maintenance.

Forget the myths you’ve heard about purchasing a new home. We’re in a new decade, with new advances, credits, pricing, and more. There has never been a better time to reap the rewards of a new home!

Packing Tips to Ensure a Smooth Transition into Your New Stylecraft Home!

February 13, 2013

After experiencing the high of purchasing a beautiful new Stylecraft home, many times, soon after comes the low of realizing what lies ahead…. the dreaded move! However, with careful planning and forethought, this seemingly overwhelming task can be quite manageable.  Here are some tips to help you have a successful move while keeping your sanity!

 

1.  Make a plan and start early! Begin to plot out your packing and moving plan a couple of months before your big moving day.  You can even start boxing up things you don’t use frequently several weeks before which will make things easier down the road.

2. Purge! If you don’t need it, don’t move it!!

3. Make sure to purchase and gather all your packing supplies in advance. The last thing you will want to do is stop in the middle of packing to go to the store.  Make sure you have plenty of boxes in various sizes, packing tape, newspaper and/or bubble wrap, and a marker for labeling.

4. Before you begin to box your belongings, make sure you keep essential items separate that you will need right away. Also, separate your valuables to ensure they will not get lost.

5. Keep items from the same room in the same box if possible.

6. Label ALL boxes; put the room it will go to in the new house and a brief description of the contents in the box.

7. Put heavier items on the bottom of boxes.

8. Make sure not to over pack a box; the limit should be 40-50 lbs. (It is best to put heavier items in smaller boxes.)

9. Use t-shirts, socks, etc. to cushion fragile items.

10. Make sure the tops of boxes can close completely and are flat. If not, items in the box can become damaged when other boxes are stacked on top.

11. Start moving boxes out of the way as you pack them and put them into one central place so it is easy to tell what is left to pack.

12. Start moving a little at a time. Every time you make a trip to the new home, take something with you!

13. If you plan on having friends help you on moving day, make sure to plan ahead and write out a list of how they can help.

 

If done properly, packing and moving doesn’t have to be an event that will make you want to pull your hair out! If you follow these steps, you will be relaxing in your Stylecraft home before you realize it!
