Moving to Texas

It’s no wonder people are flocking to the Lone Star State. Not only is Texas the second most populated state in the U.S., it is also physically one of the largest and fastest-growing states in the country. From the scrumptious beef brisket to the booming economy, there is a lot to love about Texas. Thankfully, there’s a Texas city to fit every person’s unique budget and lifestyle.

 

Lower Taxes

Texas is one of only seven states where residents pay no state income tax. The state sales tax isn’t very high either. There are also several tax incentives for businesses. According to Forbes, “Texas encourages business ownership through lower taxes and less burdensome regulations.”

 

Real Estate is Affordable

Texans are big on home ownership. According to zillow.com, the median home value for homes for sale in Texas is about $184,700. While Texas home values have gone up 6.7 percent over the past year and a rise is expected over the next 12 months, it’s still far less than the national average.

 

You’ll Save on Electricity Bills

Texas has a deregulated electricity market, meaning consumers can choose their energy supplier. This allows you to select the company that best fits the needs of your home and family. You’re also free to change providers. If you’re coming from a regulated market, that might sound risky. Don’t worry – you’ll never experience service interruptions when you switch.

 

Foodie’s Paradise

The great state of Texas is a melting pot of culinary comforts. Chiles everywhere, buffets of Tex-Mex cuisine, barbeque and happy-hours are just a few of the multitude of gastronomic experiences this state offers. There are plenty of options to satisfy your wandering palate, and resisting the temptations of fresh guacamole and mouthwatering fajitas is a hard job!

We will guide you through the entire process of choosing and buying your perfect space. You will be surprised at how easy things may be. It’s vital to understand what exactly you are looking for in your perfect home. However, you should also realize that no home can meet all your demands to the fullest. While looking for a new home, buyers often compromise on some aspects from the list of their perfect space to find something where they will feel at home.

Rent vs Buy

What’s the point of renting when you can buy a home? At Wind & Water Homes, we believe that nothing can compare to owning a home. Homeownership has some major advantages over renting. Unlike paying the rent monthly, investing in the construction of your home ensures that you will get your place. Spending thousands of dollars on mortgages establishes stability and lets you invest in your future. Renting is only for the short term. Owning a home gives you more than a sense of stability but the feeling of privacy and your own space. Though renting a space gives you flexibility and the possibility to move whenever you want, owning a home means that you can manage your space just the way you want it.

Why Buy New

One of our client’s most common questions is why they should buy a new home when they can invest in a resale. Let’s consider the difference. A new home — At Wind & Water Homes, we let you choose from a wide range of homes with open spaces and impressive suites, so you can pick the unique space that will meet your needs. A resale home — Homes that were previously owned by someone else already have the floor plan, which may not always work for you. The closet may be too small or the kitchen may not be as spacious as you want it to be. A new home from Wind & Water Homes will feature the most innovative and new appliances that let you forget about the need to invest in maintenance services in the coming years. If you buy a home with outdated appliances, be ready to invest extra money in the maintenance or purchase of new ones before you move in.

Understand the Warranty

New homes come with a builder’s warranty that provides coverage for everything from the foundation to the ceiling, and all the products, systems, and structures in between. It’s important to understand what you might be responsible to pay for without this peace of mind protection.
