Rental prices are skyrocketing in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, making the purchase of a new HISTORYMAKER home a smart and affordable alternative to renting. HISTORYMAKER is building in D-FW and Houston communities such as Denton, Humble, Spring and Aubrey and offers new homes starting at $170s. Based on increasing rental rates, now is the perfect time for renters to move into homeownership.

Media coverage on high DFW rents

The Dallas Morning News, in a July 2017 article titled, “You think D-FW rents are too high? You ain’t seen nothing yet,” reports that “Dallas-Fort Worth apartment renters who've been pining for a slowdown in rent increases are going to have to keep waiting.” Despite increased building activity, monthly rents continue to climb, outpacing increases nationwide.

“If it feels like you’re paying a lot for rent, you’re probably right: huge demand for D-FW apartments in 2016, coupled with a shortage of supply, has pushed rents and building occupancy to record levels,” said Candy Evans, a well-known Dallas real estate writer, in a recent CandysDirt.com feature.

“More people are moving to Dallas than ever before and that's why rent prices are rising. As fast as new apartment buildings go up, thousands of new renters pop up too. The extra apartment inventory is doing little to impact pricing,” NBC 5 recently reported.

Renters can afford to buy new with HISTORYMAKER

“Buying a new home in the Dallas-Fort Worth area is possible with HISTORYMAKER Homes,” said VP of Sales Mike Tadlock. “Renters from areas such as Frisco and Plano report being able to get into a new HISTORYMAKER home for similar monthly payments – and sometimes even lower monthly payments – than they were paying in rent.

“We recommend reaching out to a HISTORYMAKER New Home Consultant by phone or visiting one of our communities in person,” added Tadlock. “We will help you decide if renting is an affordable option for you, and walk you through every step of the home buying process.”

The home-buying process involves a lot of decisions. One of the biggest is deciding whether to buy a new home or a pre-existing property. Let HISTORYMAKER Homes help you make that decision!

Pros to buying new with HISTORYMAKER Homes:

  • Personalization: Buying a new HISTORYMAKER home means working with the HISTORYMAKER design team to personalize your home. Buyers make design selections that fit their lifestyle and budget with the assistance of the HISTORYMAKER design team, which provides exceptional personal service in the HISTORYMAKER showroom throughout the entire home design selection process. Decisions on flooring, lighting, cabinetry, countertops, color palettes, exterior brick and more are all yours in a new home!
  • Floor Plans: HISTORYMAKER Homes offers several modern floor plan options so buyers can choose what works best for their specific needs. HISTORYMAKER’s modern floor plans also have features not often found in older construction, such as game rooms, media rooms, spacious closets, dual bathroom vanities and “open” layouts in the kitchen, living and dining areas.
  • Energy Efficiency: New HISTORYMAKER homes are “green” built, using less energy, less water and fewer natural resources, resulting in significantly reduced energy costs over the life of the home. Low E (emissions) windows, tightly sealed duct work, radiant barrier roof decking and water-sense fixtures are just a few of the ways HISTORYMAKER makes your home more resource-efficient.
  • Healthy:  The use of non-toxic materials, such as low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) interior paint and carpet, reduces the risk of illness and improves air quality.
  • Maintenance: A newly built home normally requires less maintenance since appliances and features like the HVAC system, plumbing and roof are new. Every HISTORYMAKER home also comes with a warranty protection plan, meaning workmanship, materials and mechanical systems are covered for a specified timeframe.
  • Amenities: Buying a new HISTORYMAKER home means buying only in the very finest communities. Several HISTORYMAKER communities feature amenities such as resort-style pools, trail systems, neighborhood parks and playgrounds, lakes and water features, community centers and more, and homes that are close to outstanding schools.
  • Investment: With new construction, you can normally count on a great resale value! 

If you are ready to buy your new HISTORYMAKER home today, contact a New Home Consultant at 866-634-9838 for more information and a tour of any of our communities.

In a much more competitive field that saw builders having to crack 400 annual sales to be included on the esteemed Builder 100 list, HistoryMaker Homes moved up four spots, from No. 64 last year to No. 60 this year.

The builder — homebased in Dallas — closed 800 homes in 2016, a 26 percent increase from the 635 homes closed in 2015.

“The Builder 100 signifies the nation’s leading homebuilders, and it’s an honor to not only be included, but to see progression up the list,” said HistoryMaker Homes CEO Nelson Mitchell. “We have continued our penetration in the Dallas-Fort Worth market and for the first time began operations in the Houston area last year.”

HistoryMaker Homes builds in 15 developments spanning the Dallas-Fort Worth region, from Fort Worth to Terrell and Waxahachie to Melissa. Pricing in the Metroplex is from the $170,000s.

In October 2016, HistoryMaker debuted in the Wright’s Landing community in north Houston. The builder now operates in four Houston-area developments. Pricing in Houston is from the low $200,000s.

“Since we launched in 1949, our success has been founded on building homes that offer our homeowners more living space and less wasted space at an exceptional value,” Nelson said. “It’s a platform that resonates as much today as it did nearly 70 years ago. With our continued dominance in Dallas-Fort Worth and our rapid expansion in Houston, we are poised for continued growth.”

The Builder 100 is reported annually by Builder Magazine. HistoryMaker Homes first appeared on the list in 2007 and has been included among the Builder 100 ever since.

The summer months will be here before we know it. Owning a new HISTORYMAKER home with energy efficient and money-saving features will make the Texas summer months a breeze.

HISTORYMAKER incorporates “green” building techniques into every home it builds by using the newest technology, construction materials and building processes. Energy efficient homes use less energy and less water than older homes, meaning reduced utility costs over the lifetime of the home.  Green built homes also focus on providing seamless air barriers, which improve indoor air quality and reduce indoor allergens and allergy-related illnesses. 

Here are just a few specific examples of how your HISTORYMAKER home will save you money on utility costs, improve your quality of life and lessen environmental impact: 

·        Low E (Emissions) windows minimize the amount of light, and therefore heat and cold, that is transmitted  through glass, keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer

·        Radiant Barrier roof decking reduces the amount of heat absorbed through the attic, lessening heat and cold transfer into living areas through the ceiling, again saving on utility costs

·        Low VOC (volatile organic compounds) interior paint and carpet reduceozone impact and smog formation as well as VOC’s link to respiratory illnesses

·        WaterSense-certified fixtures use 30 percent less water without affecting performance, saving families an average of 700 gallons of water per year

·        Programmable thermostats help manage heating and AC costs when you aren’t at home

·        Tightly sealed duct work, R-30 fiberglass blown insulation and R-13 fiberglass batt exterior wall insulation, among other building techniques, help prevent drafts and leaks

These are just a few of the ways HISTORYMAKER homes are good for your family and better for our world! Buyers can read more here or contact a New Home Consultant at 866-634-9838 with questions.

“We really like the small town, intimate feel of the Kennedale schools.  Everyone seems to know and look out for each other. While larger districts do have some advantages, we prefer the personal relationships that are established in a district like Kennedale,” said Nicole Clark, a Kennedale resident.

Homes in Melia Ranch are available for move-in now. Current quick move-in homes vary in square footage from 2,000 to almost 3,000-square-feet and are both one and two-story. HISTORYMAKER homes in this community feature several floor plan options, with opportunities for game and media rooms. Kitchens are perfect for entertaining with islands that offer extra prep and seating space, ample storage and stunning granite countertops. Master suites are spacious and have spa-like baths.

Finding an affordable home to purchase in Sherman, Texas is no easy task. One February 2015 report from KXII in Texas claims that home prices in the Sherman-Denison area have risen 21 percent since last year, while a May 2015 article from the Wall Street Journal asserts an actual 33 percent price increase since the first quarter of 2014. And while there are many reasons for these price surges, two in particular stand out: a recent influx of new residents raising demand, and a shortage of inventory, especially with a relative scarcity of new-home development throughout the area.

In the process of purchasing a new house, all homebuyers encounter the same age-old question: should I buy a new home or a resale? For some buyers, a newly-built home is where they envision spending their lives; and for others, there is nothing more ideal than a quaint and comfortable home put on the market by the previous owner.

Is one choice better than the other? Is it always better to purchase a new home over a resale, or vice versa? Ultimately, the answer depends on the circumstances of the buyer; however, there certainly are a host of compelling reasons to purchase a new house, especially if you are interested in moving to the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Benefits of Purchasing a Resale Home

First, we want to cover the benefits associated with purchasing a home put on the market by previous owners. To begin, a potential homebuyer may have his or her sights sets on moving to a specific neighborhood wherein open property is no longer available for development; here, the buyer would have to settle on an already constructed home to fulfill his or her dream. Other homebuyers may relish the opportunity to live in a quaint, older home, one that is rich with history and is perfect for those who don’t mind do-it-yourself projects. It is for these homebuyers that a resale home may be the perfect choice.

Why You Should Purchase a New Home

There are, as mentioned above, a few circumstances in which potential buyers may benefit from buying a resale home. But unless you’re aching to perform constant repairs to a home that may not have seen renovations recently, you are likely better off suited to purchase a new one.

Most importantly, buying a new home often empowers you with greater flexibility in choice as there are many combinations of floor plans and exteriors within the same community. This experience alone convinces many potential buyers to decide on a new home.

In addition, purchasing a new home comes with other perks, such as the opportunity to outfit the house with energy efficient additions, including appliances, roofs, windows, and more. And here, it is much less likely that you’ll spend a significant amount in replacement costs for the home, which cannot be said for older models that may be falling apart.

Need a Home? Contact us at HISTORYMAKER Homes

With the above in mind, if you are interested in moving to Dallas-Fort Worth, don’t overlook the possibility of purchasing a new home. At HISTORYMAKER Homes, we have numerous available models throughout the DFW in a handful of our new communities. Our new homes for sale throughout Dallas-Fort Worth are ideal for those interested in a spacious house with enough room to build a family. Contact us today at HISTORYMAKER Homes to learn how we can offer you more home for less money.

It may come as no surprise to current DFW residents to hear that homes in the area are in high demand. With a lagging inventory, coupled with an influx of new individuals and families with employment ties to a number of businesses in the area, those looking for homes are being confronted with a very competitive housing market. And, in fact, as of August 2015, Dallas was ranked as the second hottest real estate market in the country by an economist at Realtor.com, a designation that is not likely to be shed in the near future.

How Much Does it Really Cost to Live in Dallas?

It’s not impossible to find a home throughout Dallas-Fort Worth; to be sure, an inventory still exists, allowing potential homebuyers the chance to find something in the area. However, due to the heavy demand and small amount of available homes, prices have risen as a result; a July 2015 article provided by the Home Buying Institute claims that home prices in the area have risen nearly 10.5 percent over the last year or so, with another 6.5 percent rise expected to occur through July 2016.

Of course, this does provide a host of benefits for the DFW Metroplex economy. A large surge of new residents is helping to bolster the economy and provide tax revenue from the state. It has, however, left many homebuyers wondering whether or not purchasing a home in the Dallas-Fort Worth area will ever be a reality.

Are You Looking to Move? Consider a Home from HISTORYMAKER Homes

If you are currently searching for a new or resale home throughout the Metroplex, your frustration is warranted. After all, high demand and low inventory has led to a rise in prices over the past years.

Don’t give up the search though; instead consider a new home in one of the many beautiful suburban communities offered by HISTORYMAKER Homes. We are currently developing affordable homes in multiple new communities throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area in order to grow the local inventory and ensure all potential homebuyers are able to find the house of their dreams.

It is generally a widely accepted belief among homebuyers that a new home will cost significantly more than a resale. And the logic driving this may seem sound, at first – a brand-new home should always cost more than its lived-in counterpart, right?

But while this assumption may often hold true in many locales throughout the nation, future homebuyers in Dallas-Fort Worth should forget this wisdom immediately. To be sure, the Metroplex is witnessing a surge in median home prices overall, which should make a new, affordable home even more enticing as a potential purchase.

House Market Exploding in Dallas-Fort Worth

This year has seen a massive increase in the price of homes throughout the entirety of North Texas. According to a May 2015 report in the Dallas Morning News, median house sales prices soared above $200,000 for the first time this year, with the “median price of preowned single-family homes sold by real estate agents in North Texas…almost 60 percent higher than it was in January 2010.” Because of this recent boost, “the Dallas area now leads the country in year-over-year home price increases,” statistics taken from a national comparison provided by CoreLogic Inc.

Of course, a perfect storm of factors has arisen to lead to these results. With a large influx of jobs in North Texas, along with a decrease in inventory throughout the area, the median home price increase was only inevitable.

A New Home is the Perfect Solution

Once you shake the perception that a new home is inherently more expensive than a resale, you can quickly transition your thought process to the many benefits of buying a new construction home in DFW versus a resale.

High property value and low home inventory all play in favor of leaning toward a new construction purchase in a new DFW community. History Maker Homes has some of the finest new homes on the market and many of these floor plans and locations in our inventory can be had for under $200k. When cost is no longer a valid argument against buying a new construction home in DFW this option becomes even more compelling.

History Maker Homes – More House for Less Money

There is absolutely no reason to purchase a resale house for $200,000 when you can choose a brand new model in a beautiful community for a comparable price. So if you are searching for the perfect house in Dallas-Fort Worth, you’ve found the answer in History Maker Homes. We are currently constructing new communities in Fort Worth, Waxahachie, Wylie, and other areas throughout the Metroplex with prices starting in the $120s for some of our communities. Our homes are perfect for couples looking to start a family, young families interested in moving up, or even older couples interested in downsizing to a quaint new community.

Our family-owned business has been serving Dallas-Fort Worth for over 60 years, and we are happy to help you today. Contact History Maker Homes for more information on how we can turn your dream home into a reality.


 

Being a new homebuyer in the Dallas-Fort Worth area is certainly no easy task this year. New statistics show that home price appreciation in Dallas has risen 8.4 percent year-over-year, a higher percentage than all other markets in the country outside of Denver and San Francisco. And part of the appreciation is due to low supply; as of now there is only a 1.7-month supply of homes in Dallas-Fort Worth, a much lower inventory than usual.

Does this mean that most buyers will have to reach deep into their pockets in order to find a home they truly want? Or will many buyers be out of luck in their search for an affordable home?

Dallas-Fort Worth Builders Work to Increase Inventory

In light of the recent demand for housing in Dallas-Fort Worth, History Maker Homes and other DFW homebuilders have been working aggressively to increase available inventory. To be sure, homebuilders in the area have boosted “new home starts in the third quarter by 21.8 percent year-over-year to help meet the demand caused by the influx of new jobs,” according to an article in the Dallas Business Journal. The Dallas-Fort Worth area saw an increase of 103,500 new jobs in the 12 months ending in August, which is nearly 50 percent of the total jobs added throughout the entirety of the state.

Despite aggressive expansion, have DFW homebuilders finished enough homes to meet the demand? According to the article, “Dallas-Fort Worth homebuilders started 8,014 homes and closed on 6,811 new homes during” the same period, which should help keep up with demand over time, but this also highlights how little time new-home inventory stays on the market.

History Maker Homes Has a Home for You in Dallas-Fort Worth

The shortage of homes coupled with the surge in new jobs has ultimately led to home prices rising, as mentioned above. And, this has left many Dallas-Fort Worth homebuyers struggling to find their dream home within their budget.

If you feel you are struggling to find your dream home in DFW for an affordable price due to limited inventory, you shouldn’t give up; instead, you should reach out to History Maker Homes, a reliable homebuilder in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. We have been operating locally since 1949, and have consistently strived to provide more space, choice, and value for your new  home for over 65 years. And as a family-owned and operated company, we consider our customers’ satisfaction our top priority and pride ourselves on our sterling reputation as the premier Dallas-Fort Worth homebuilder.

Don’t adopt the mistaken belief that a new-construction home is more expensive than a comparable resale; ignoring all of the cost-saving benefits of a new home primarily concerning maintenance, you’ll be surprised by the great value and affordable prices offered by our new communities in DFW.

There is no better time than now to search for an affordable home in Dallas-Fort Worth. Contact History Maker Homes where you’ll quickly find that we adhere to our motto: More Home, Less Money.


 

For many potential homebuyers throughout North Texas, finding a new house in a high-quality school district is a top priority. This fact is well understood: those couples with children, or who wish to start a family, are often fueled in their home selections by specifics that will help enrich the quality of life for their kids, and provide them with a better and brighter future.

Of course, this is one of the many reasons that families from far and wide are choosing to relocate in Wylie, Texas, home of one of the fastest-growing school districts across the state. And now, you can enroll your child into one of these yearned-after schools by purchasing a home in Bozman Farms, a new development by History Maker Homes in Wylie that offers a beautiful new community for families of all sizes.

Quality Schools in a Great Location

As a parent, it is fair to assume that you only want the best education for your child to ensure he or she has a bright future. And this is exactly what you will receive with a home in Bozman Farms; these beautiful models are within the Wylie Independent School District, a district that has seen massive enrollment over the past eight years, and with no real end in sight to the growth. As of January 2015, the Wylie ISD was within the 4A class, with 1,025 students enrolled altogether. However, “the number of students need[ed] to turn Wylie into a class 5A is…less than 50,” likely an achievable feat given the rapid growth of this desirable ISD.

What’s the importance of enrolling your child in a 4A or 5A school? Within one of these institutions, he or she will be surrounded by and compete against some of the best students throughout the entirety of Texas, both in sports and in academic competitions.

Other Benefits of Bozman Farms

Beyond proximity to Wylie ISD, there are a host of other benefits associated with a home in Bozman Farms. For one, this new community is close to the Telecom Corridor, a burgeoning business center perfect for those searching for employment in the technology industry.
