I Just Sold a Home in Parmer Village for $0 Down and $0 Closing Costs!

Recently, I took a client out to many resale homes in the Round Rock school district and this is what we found: old homes, no warranty, no closing costs paid, not energy efficient, square footage too small for what my client needed in bedroom size, and many needed repairs or new carpet/paint/appliances, etc.

I talked to my client about my experience with selling new homes, and then I took her over to Parmer Village and she fell in love with a modern 3/2/2 beautiful home that was perfect in every way for her and her two children. The home had granite countertops and island in the kitchen, espresso color cabinets, a computer work station and stainless steel appliances (I negotiated for the builder to put a refrigerator and washer dryer in the home at no cost too!) In addition, 6’ ft. privacy fence and perfect size back yard. Sprinkler system in the front and back, too! Also, there are 2” blinds throughout the home and painted accent walls, rounded corners, dble sinks in master bath, 2 car garage with opener, and much more!! The builder paid all of her closing costs and the capitol area bond paid her down payment!

Out of pocket she had to initially put up a check for $1,000 in earnest money, and today she will receive a check back at closing today for that $1,000! She is literally paying $0 out of pocket to purchase this home! I negotiated the price down to get her to the $1300.00 total monthly payment that she needed. And, it gets even better: her interest rate with the bond is set at a 3.5% fixed rate! The community is beautiful! Great location, Round Rock Schools, community pool, and even low property taxes of only 2.13%! There’s a 10 year warranty paid by the builder and of course the title policy to guarantee clear title.

The best part of this entire transaction is my client is so very excited and is closing today which is less than 30 days from our contract date! I love happy and excited clients and ones that get exactly what they want in a home! She said this is a dream come true!
