Find the Right Fit – Which Crosswinds Builder is the One for You?

We don’t know about other communities, but at Crosswinds, we don’t go for cookie cutter homebuilders! Each Crosswinds builder was chosen because there’s something about them that makes them exceptionally unique. Today, we’re shining a spotlight on their differences and why we love having them build our new homes in Kyle, TX.

Pacesetter Homes

Meritage Homes

Find the Right Fit – Which Crosswinds Builder is the One for You?

The thing that makes Meritage Homes such an immensely unique Crosswinds builder is their relentless efforts to create the most energy-efficient homes that still retain a high level of practical luxury. In fact, every year since 2013, Meritage Homes has won ENERGY STARÒ Partner of the Year for Sustained Excellence and ENERGY STARÒ Leadership in Housing. On top of having remarkably energy-efficient homes, Meritage Homes also includes their M.Connected HomeÔ Automation Suite to every single one of their new homes in Kyle, TX.

Aside from that, Highland Homes has also been a six-time winner of the People’s Choice Builder of the Year Award. The new homes in Kyle, TX from Highland Homes start from the $240s on the 50’ lots and $250s on the 60’ lots.

Top 4 Things to Know for First-time Homebuyers

For all those first-time homebuyers out there, it can be difficult when you’re starting your search for new homes in Kyle, TX when you don’t know what you don’t know about home buying. That’s why our master-planned community has put together this quick list for first-time homebuyers.

Top 4 Things to Know for First-Time Homebuyers

1. Start Your Search by Location

First things first, you want to start your search for a new home by location. If you’re trying to live in a larger city, such as Austin, it may be more beneficial for you to start your search with smaller surrounding cities. That’s the easiest way for you to find new homes in Kyle, TX and the other surrounding areas that will better fit your first-time homebuyer budget.

2. Calculate Your Possible Home Loan Mortgage

Once you’ve found a couple of homes that you like, it’s time to start preemptively crunching some numbers. This nifty home loan mortgage calculator from Realtor.com will help you to accurately estimate what your home loan mortgage payment will be every month.

3. ALWAYS have an Inspection

Even when it comes to our new homes in Kyle, TX, you should always have a home inspection! While all the exceptional homebuilders in Crosswinds have exemplary records of quality construction, having your own inspection done is always a smart move and will give you an extra level of peace of mind.

4. Start Gathering Your Documents Early

One of the biggest things first-time homebuyers don’t realize is how many documents they need to complete during the home buying process. You’ll need virtually everything from the last two years, including pay stubs, bank account statements, W-2s, tax returns, statements from current loans and credit lines and that’s just the start.

Being first-time homebuyers can be a little scary, but we hope this quick list will help you be a bit more prepared. If you’d like to learn more about our breathtaking new homes in Kyle, TX, please contact Crosswinds today to schedule your community tour.

Recent technological advancements have allowed us to make simple home improvements faster! By buying one or two gadgets, you can make life at home much easier. While making your home smart might sound like a daunting task, the technology has come a long way and it is now easier than ever. There are a lot of smart home goods like LED bulbs, locks, TVs and even robot vacuums that clean your home while keeping your pet intrigued. For those looking to step into the future of homes, here’s some information on smart home technology!

Your Personal Home Assistant

You have probably chatted with Siri, Alexa or Google on your phone or other device. Artificial intelligence is one of the many ways you can make your home smarter. Companies like Apple, Google and Amazon came up with their own home assistant technologies that execute some of the tasks you do at home like playing music, updating your calendar and even computing simple math problems as you dictate. If you paid attention to this year’s Apple WWDC (Apple Worldwide Developers Conference), then you might have noticed Apple’s new egg-shaped speaker called “HomePod”, which promises to innovate home speakers, but also act as a smart home assistant that lets you connect to the different devices inside your home. If you’re having trouble deciding which smart home technology assistant to purchase, see how they stack up to each other!

Wondering Where to Start?

With the number of brands and devices out on the market, choosing a smart home appliance can be overwhelming. The best starting point is your home TV. If you have bought your TV within the last few years, it probably has “smart features” that let you browse the web, stream videos and photos from your phone or even let you install third party apps like Skype, Netflix and Facebook for more productivity or entertainment.

Smart homes not only make your life easier, but are also good for the environment! If you’ve decided to buy one of our new homes in Kyle, TX, it’s a good investment to install a learning thermostat, LED bulbs or even a smart refrigerator. These devices are designed to conserve excessive electric usage and reduce your monthly cost. To learn more about our homes near Austin, contact Crosswinds today.

Is Your Credit Ready for a Home Mortgage Loan?

home mortgage loan

When you’re a first-time homebuyer, there are a lot of things that you just don’t know. It isn’t your fault. You’ve just never needed to know all the ins and outs of homebuying and what goes into getting a home mortgage loan, such as your credit score. It’s best if both the credit scores of you and your partner are in tip top shape. Here are a few tips to make sure your credit is ready for a home mortgage loan.

Check Your Credit Reports

First and foremost, you need to check your credit reports to make sure there’s nothing damaging on there. There are three credit reports your lender could check – Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. Since you don’t know which credit score your lender will check, it’s best to take a thorough look through each of them. You can get a free copy of each of your credit reports at annualcreditreport.com. You can also keep a constant eye on your credit through mobile apps like Credit Karma.

Dispute Any Inaccuracies

Inaccurate information on your report can really hurt your credit and your chances of getting approved for a home mortgage loan. Regardless of whether you have physical proof of the mistake, you should dispute it with the credit bureau.

Pay Off Delinquent Accounts and Bury Them with Timely Payments

If you have any delinquent accounts including any late accounts, charge-offs, bills in collection and judgments, you need to get those sorted out. You then will need to re-establish a pattern of timely payments that will show to your lender that you will be a responsible borrower.

Reduce Your Debt-to-Income Ratio

You need to be able to show your lender that you will be able to pay your mortgage every month, and it’s hard to do that if you have a high level of debt relative to your income. Ideally, you want your monthly debt payments to be no more than 12% of your income.

Check Your FICO Score

Since your FICO  score is what’s used by 90% of lenders whether it’s for a car or home mortgage loan, you’ll want to know what it is before you start applying. You ideally want your FICO score to be at least 720 to get a good interest rate.

If you’re ready for a home mortgage loan and to buy one of our new homes in Kyle, TX, contact Crosswinds today! We can’t wait to tell you all about our master-planned community.
