Typical home closing costs include:
• Local and state taxes
• Recording fees
• Fees charged by your lender, settlement agent, or third-party providers, such as appraisers
Total home closing costs can range from approximately 2% to 6% of the cost of your home, some of which can be paid by the seller or the lender at the time of the home sale. Since costs vary by situation, our preferred lenders1 or your own home advisor can work with you to determine your closing costs.
Although Beazer does not offer a home discount specifically for customers buying their first home, here are just a few ways we help you get the most from your Beazer investment:
Buying a new home doesn’t have to be complicated. At Beazer, we’ve simplified the home buying experience by providing partners and resources to guide home buyers through each phase of building and the process of buying a house. The Beazer home building process follows 5 simple steps:
Discover more about Beazer’s Home Building Process and see how the 5 steps fall into place.
Depending on the buyer’s financial standing, new homes can be financed with as little as a 3-3.5% home down payment. Certain customers may even qualify to buy a home with no down payment, including active and retired members of the military. When you’re ready, your own lender or the preferred lenders1 in Beazer’s Mortgage Choices program will work with you to determine your home down payment. Then, use our Mortgage Calculator to find your fixed rate mortgage payment and financing options.
All Beazer homes are built with savings in mind. To discover ways to lower the cost of buying a house in your desired community, visit Beazer.com to find your community of interest and check the ‘Hot News’ tab. Or visit the community in-person to talk with a New Home Counselor about all of the benefits of buying a home in a Beazer community.
Beyond the sale and home building processes, Beazer Homes also provides guidance and tools to help you reduce the cost of buying a house and continue to save money at home:
Choice Plans™ offers personalized, flexible floorplans at no additional cost so you can choose the kitchen layout, bathroom layout, and more that work best for you
• ENERGY STAR® appliances save energy and reduce your monthly utility costs1
• Mortgage Choices program lets you compare mortgage options, and find competitive rates to help you save money at home for many years to come
Beazer Homes determines the location of our communities based on the proximity to transportation, recreation, schools, and other community amenities. Once you find the community you’re most interested in on Beazer.com, click the ‘Explore Area’ tab and use the map to view local attractions, community resources and other places of interest, including:
• School and University Ratings
• Downtown Area
• Restaurants and Retail
• Entertainment and Recreation
• City Parks
Rates of property taxes and property assessments are controlled by each county and vary significantly. Most county tax collector websites have a property tax calculator that can be used to find the estimated taxes on your home. If you’d rather work directly with a professional, your Beazer New Home Counselor or lender can also provide you with a property tax estimate based on your location and home purchase price.
Because house lot size tends to vary by community, so will the size of each Beazer home lawn. If you’d like to know more about the home and yard dimensions in your desired community, visit Beazer.com, choose the community of your liking, and chat live with a New Home Information Manager about the home sites available.
Beazer works with manufacturers first-hand to provide the best home design options so you can stay true to your interior preferences and within your budget. Once you have signed a contract, you can schedule an appointment at a Beazer Design Studio to meet with our design professionals who will help you hand pick your perfect wallpaper, lighting, countertops, flooring and more to truly personalize your home.
If your home has the same floorplan as the model house plan, the home layouts may be similar, depending on the design selections you choose for your new home. You may notice that a model house plan lacks a driveway or garage, but both will be included with the home. Or maybe you like the model landscaping and furniture and want them to be included with your new home- No worries! Ask your New Home Counselor for details!
Check out the Beazer Blog for a handy infographic that will help you better understand the differences between the model home and your new home.
