Ring in the New Year with a New Home

The new year is a time to set goals, whether you want to spend more time with family, exercise more often or finally start the process of buying a new home. With the recent opening of our amenities, the beginning of a full calendar of community events and all the exciting things in store in 2018, now is a great time to buy at Headwaters. There are hundreds of things to consider when deciding to purchase a new home, but here are five big ones:

  1. Home Prices National home prices have increased at a historically high rate, and it’s quite likely that this trend will continue according to the Case-Shiller index. Purchasing a home now means you can lock in a potentially lower home price and make a valuable investment in the growing Austin-area real estate market.

  2. Mortgage Rates Mortgage rates are historically low right now, but the Federal Reserve currently has plans to put in place stricter monetary policies in 2018, which may increase mortgage rates as a result. By purchasing a home now you’ll be able to take advantage of these low rates, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in the long run. Instead of putting that money towards interest, you can spend it on something you really want, like an outdoor fireplace, second-story balcony or extra-large soaking tub.

  3. Changing SchoolsHeadwaters parents will be thrilled with the award-winning Dripping Springs ISD, but changing schools partway through the year can be stressful and scary for kids. Purchasing a new home in the beginning of the year means you can get your kids enrolled in time for the next school year, avoiding a disruptive mid-year transfer. And even if you don’t have school-aged children, a great school district can mean higher property values, putting you in a better position if you ever decide to sell your home.

  4. New AmenitiesHeadwaters’ amenities are already open for residents to enjoy, so you can take advantage of everything Headwaters has to offer from day one. Starting to build your new home now means you can enjoy it all before the winter. Take the kids to cool off at the resort-style pool and splash pad, enjoy the miles of greenbelt trails or gaze up in wonder at the stargazing amphitheater.

  5. Room to GrowHeadwaters is still growing, and there’s tons to take advantage of right now. You can have your pick of available home sites before they’re gone, whether you want a corner lot, sweeping Hill Country views or easy trail access. Plus, as one of the founding families at Headwaters, you’ll have the chance to influence the types of community programming and events that are offered, whether you want yoga classes on the lawn, playdates at the park or book clubs at HW Central.
