This morning I participated in the Cedar Park (north) broker tour and got to see some fantastic listings! I really am quite impressed with how all of the homes are staged to sell! The majority of today’s homes were priced in the mid-$100’s. Typically on property tours, the agents really tear into the lack of staging a home needs or how a home needs de-cluttering…but this tour seemed quite different! It may have just been luck of the draw, or it may be a sign that sellers are really listening to the advice of their Realtors and stagers!

USDA Program Available for Select Cedar Park Homes

Out of the eight homes we saw, four are eligible for the USDA loan program. If you are not familiar with the USDA loan program, it allows buyers to buy a home – in specific rural areas – with no down payment and minimal closing costs. When some buyers hear rural, they think of a home way out in the country, with no amenities or shopping nearby. However, as today’s tour showed, you can find a home that meets the USDA loan eligibility in a great subdivision in popular Cedar Park that’s near schools, shopping and dining.

1918 Marysol Trl

The home that I had on the property tour was 1918 Marysol Trl. Located in Trails at Carriage Hills, my listing was just completely rebuilt and many elements of it (roof, drywall, wiring, plumbing, flooring, cabinets, Low E3 windows, radiant barrier and more!) are brand new. So, not only can you find great homes in this area that are well priced, sometimes you can even find a home that’s been completely renovated with all of the other benefits I mentioned above!

My take-away from today’s tour was that no matter if you have money saved up for a down payment or need a government program like USDA to help you into a home, you won’t be disappointed with the homes available in Cedar Park. Let me know if you want me to send you a list of the homes on today’s property tour, or if you would like to go see them in person!
