You’ve likely heard the phrase, “everything’s bigger in Texas,” which can apply to everything from cowboy hats, speed limits, and pick-up trucks, to the sheer magnitude of the Texas State Capitol building and the value of its flagship professional sports franchise, the Dallas Cowboys. Heck, one of the state’s cattle ranches, King Ranch, has more acreage than Rhode Island.

Consider that Texas has double the square miles of the 10 smallest states combined, meaning you could fit many East Coast states, with Hawaii included as a bonus, inside its borders. For an international perspective, the state is twice the size of Germany.

This popular expression also applies to the Lone Star state’s population growth. At 25.1 million people, Texas sits only behind California in population, but is continuously recognized as having the most rapid growth of any state in the U.S. Nowhere is that more evident than in Austin, the heartbeat of Texas and a destination known and admired for its purposeful pursuit of weird.

Global Research firm, JLL, recently anointed Austin as the 19th fastest growing city in the world, joined only by Silicon Valley. Similarly, the Urban Land Institute ranked Austin No. 1 in its 2020 Emerging Trends forecast for overall real estate prospects, commenting on its deep talent pool, unique and popular lifestyle and ambitious commitment to business and real estate expansion.

Austin’s population growth is certainly no flash in the pan. According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau, 2019 was the eighth consecutive year that the five-county Austin metropolitan area that includes Travis, Bastrop, Hays, Williamson and Caldwell counties was recognized as the fastest growing area in the country among metros with at least one million people. That means a lot of homes for sale in Austin. So many, in fact, that homebuyers are able to be incredibly selective in finding a builder they can trust, and one with a proven track record of success.

So how is Lennar standing apart from the competition to serve the approximately 105 people moving to Austin each day? By designing gorgeous new designs across Central Texas for homebuyers at all stages of life, whether first-time or move-up buyer, multigenerational family or active adult.

Buying a new home is an exciting milestone- and it’s not just because you can stop paying rent for an over-priced apartment. If you’re in the market for a new home in Tampa Bay, there are a few factors you should consider before you apply for a home loan.

Types of Traditional Loans

When you’re applying for a home mortgage loan, consider whether you want to apply for a 15-year or a 30-year mortgage.

With a 15-year fixed loan, you will have a higher monthly payment, and the interest rate on your loan might be lower. Plus, a shorter payback period means you build equity in your home twice as fast as you would with a 30-year mortgage.

With a 30-year mortgage, your monthly payment will be lower. You will still build equity in your home, but your interest rate might be higher compared to the 15-year mortgage option.

Understanding Down Payments

A common misconception is that you must put down 20% of the home’s cost for a down payment. If you don’t have that saved, don’t worry! There are plenty of other loan options that allow for a smaller down payment. Check those options out here.

Resources for First-Time Homebuyers

Take advantage of resources and programs to help ease the uncertainty of the homebuying process! Make Your Move is a great program with quarterly workshops designed to educate and empower young professionals with the knowledge they’ll need to feel confident in their homebuying decision.

No matter the length of your mortgage or the size of your down payment, you’re sure to have questions about the home buying process. With that in mind, Lennar is presenting the Make Your Move workshop series. This program has been designed to provide young professionals with the keys to homeownership. At each workshop, a panel of experts is there to offer answers to any questions you may have about buying a home. RSVP for the next event or follow Make Your Move on Facebook and Instagram for relevant tips, real estate news and more.
