Here's Why New Home Prices are Headed UP

If you are in the market for a new home in the Temple, Belton or Copperas Cove areas of central Texas, you’ve probably noticed that prices have been creeping up over the past year.

Those prices have been going up because the costs of the materials used in the construction of a new home have been going up.  But did you know that those costs have been going up MUCH faster than the cost of a new home?

Home builders hate to raise prices.  They do everything they can to stretch their profit margin so they don’t have to hit their local home buyers with a price increase.  They absorb most of the price increases in materials and only pass a part of that cost on to the consumer.   

That’s why you have seen prices CREEPING up instead of increasing in leaps and bounds throughout the year.  

Unfortunately, lumber and other material costs have been going up all year. Take a look at what lumber futures have done over the past year:

New Home prices going up in Temple

At this time, the supply of lumber is low and demand is high.  Economics 101 says that low supply plus high demand equals higher prices.  That’s where we are in today's economy..

THE TAKE AWAY

Today, the lumber supplier for Jerry Wright Homes notified us that lumber prices are going to be significantly higher, effective immediately.

If you have your eye on a new home, now's the time to get out there and buy.   You'll save a good amount over homes that are under construction now and in the future.

With this huge “leap and bound” in lumber prices, plus all the costs builders have stretched to absorb in the past year, all new home sales prices can do today is take a pretty good leap upward, too.    

 

Do You Know Your Window Styles?

When you custom build a home with us, whether on one of our lots or on your own land, one of the first things we order are the windows.

The reason we start with windows is it takes time to order from the factory and wait for them to be built.   Then they are delivered to your new home's job site, ready for installation by our framers.

Choosing a window style is very personal.  We always ask you what you prefer.  We  never make design decisions for you.

If you have no idea what style of windows are available, here are a few examples.

 

Prairie Style Windows

The Prairie Style window is one to choose if you admire bungalow styles from the early 20th century.  Often called "Craftsman Style", a home with Prairie style windows reflects your interest in that period and style of homes.

Colonial Style Windows

The Colonial style windows remind us of deep traditions.  You've probably seen this style all your life.   If this window style appeals to you, you more than likely love tradition and elegance.

No Down Payment Required! Homes in Meadows at Creekside

One of the biggest obstacles to home ownership is saving enough for the down payment.  Buyers may have the income to qualify for a loan but are struggling to save enough for a down payment for an FHA loan or a conventional loan.  FHA loans have required a 3.5 % down payment  and conventional loans required 10% or more down payment.    And both these programs require a monthly payment for mortgage insurance, too.

It looks like a change may be coming from Compass Bank, which has committed 11 BILLION dollars to their Home Ownership Made Easy program.  This program provides 100% financing ( with no mortgage insurance requirement) in certain designated areas of Temple.  This means that they will be making loans that do not require ANY downpayment from the buyer.  All the buyer contributes is $500.   The bank and the seller pay ALL your closing costs!

The Meadows at Creekside is located in an area that qualifies for this 100% financing loan.   Interest rates are very reasonable, and it will be a 30 year fixed rate loan.. no funny business or strange terms to worry about.

Call us today if you have been thinking of buying a new home but just couldn't come up with a down payment.  Jerry Wright Homes will help you get in touch with the lender so you can start your loan application.

The Meadows at Creekside is located off Case Road, near SW H.K. Dodgen Loop.
