Our Gift to You This Season: Save Big on Closing Costs

‘Tis the season for giving, and Trendmaker Homes has a special present for you. Right now, we’re offering special savings when you purchase a new home in Houston or Austin.

During our Hosting the Holidays limited-time sales event, you’ll receive up to $10,000 in closing cost credit* toward a Houston-area home on select quick move-in homes, or up to $11,000 in closing cost credit* toward an Austin-area home in select communities. Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or an experienced one, that means a new home may be closer than you think. With significantly reduced closing costs, you can purchase your dream home sooner and have more money to make your home uniquely yours.

Closing Costs 101

When buying a new home, most homebuyers focus on saving for a down payment. Yet, they also must consider other up-front expenses, including closing costs. Closing costs are expenses above the purchase price of your home, related to finalizing a loan and “closing” the purchase.

Up-front expenses can include fees for an attorney, title search, title insurance, taxes, lender costs, appraisals, document preparation and homeowner’s insurance. These fees usually equal two to five percent of the purchase price.

The amount you’ll pay in closing costs varies according to the size of your loan and local tax laws. For example, if you’re buying a $300,000 house, the total closing costs could range from $6,000 to $15,000. Closing costs are due when you sign your final loan documents. You will most likely wire the funds to escrow that day, or bring a cashier’s check.

Host the Holidays in Your New Home

Trendmaker Homes’ closing cost credit allows you a limited-time opportunity to lower the amount of money you must pay when you finalize your loan. Now, you can save on closing costs and use those savings to personalize your dream home just in time for the holidays.

Would you like to invest in new furniture with plenty of seating for the holidays? Or create a great entertaining area with a backyard patio and master grill? Perhaps surprise the kids with a media room just right for cozy movie nights? Whatever route you take, lower closing costs can help.

Not Your Average Homes or Communities

Trendmaker Homes offers stylish homes designed for homeowners looking for proximity to the city and an abundance of activities. Situated in active Houston and Austin communities, homes are close to city employers and attractions, and include stylish architecture, green spaces and plenty of amenities.

Whatever your style, you’ll find something to love, like thoughtfully designed floor plans, desirable open-concept living, spacious kitchens and flex spaces. Wave to the neighbors on the miles of nature trails or meet up for a splash date with the kids at the sparkling community pool.

With extra savings on closing costs, now is a great time to find your new home in a desirable location and enjoy the holidays in style.
