The weather is starting to cool down, the days are getting shorter, and sweaters have been taken out of storage. This could only mean one thing: the Holiday season is coming! Many potential homeowners wonder, “when is it a good time to buy a home?” Read on to learn why the holiday season is the best time to buy a house.

*“THE HOLIDAY SEASON IS MEANT TO BE SPENT WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS, AS WELL AS TO MAKING MEMORIES THAT WILL ONE DAY BE GREATLY CHERISHED. THAT’S WHY OUR COMMITMENT TO BUILDING YOUR TROPICANA HOME WITH ONLY THE BEST IS OUR PRIORITY. WE WANT YOU TO SPEND THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, AND EVERY SEASON IN A HOME YOU WILL LOVE AND ENJOY.” - RANDY BOWLING, PRESIDENT, TROPICANA HOMES *

Sales, Sales, Sales

One of the best things about the holiday season is the sales. You can get the best prices on everything you need for your new home by shopping during the holiday season. Whether you need kitchenware or decor items, the holiday season offers you excellent savings so you can furnish your home for less. Two great things that Tropicana Homes provides can also help you settle in even faster during the holidays are the stainless steel GE appliances that are incorporated into every home and select finished homes that include furniture in the living and dining rooms! This means that your home will be Holiday ready as soon as you walk through the door.

Move-in Ready Homes

One of the best things about moving into a brand new build is that it is move-in ready. Just unlock the front door and bring in your things. You’ll be able to enjoy the holidays at home without organizing renovations or repairs. Tropicana Homes offers a variety of available inventory in our different communities. Feel free to ask any of our knowledgable sales professionals for the move-in ready homes that are in their communities and find your dream home in no time! Do you prefer to have an open floor plan? Or do you love the idea of a great room that features both a dining room and living room? Do you want a one or two story home? You can have exactly what you’ve always dreamed of when you buy a new build. Just turn the key and you’re home! Take a look at our array of floorplans that range from 1,150 Sq. Ft. to 3,430 Sq. Ft. Plus, we have 12 communities throughout the El Paso area including, Horizon City, Socorro, Texas or Clint, Texas. Read about how to find the right neighborhood for you.

Tax Benefits

Closing on a house during the holiday season could give you a major tax advantage for the upcoming year, especially if you are buying a house as an investment property. You might be able to deduct property taxes and the interest rate on your new mortgage on this year’s taxes. The more your house costs, the higher the property taxes. Then, during tax season, the higher the deductions you’ll enjoy. Our preferred lender, Patriot Mortgage, is happy to help you make getting your mortgage simple and straightforward. You’ll also receive up to 6% closings costs when going through Patriot Mortgage. Everyone’s financial situation is different so buying a home during the holidays might not help you pay fewer taxes. We recommend you speak to your tax accountant to find out if a tax saving applies to you.

New Year, New Term

Starting at a new school once the school year has started, especially at the start of a term, is ideal. For one thing, the kids will easily develop friendships by the time summer vacation arrives. When those long, hot days of summer come around, your kids will have many school friends they can call on to enjoy the sunshine together. Every Tropicana Homes community is conveniently located near great schools that range from Preschool to High School. View our previous blog to learn on how to find the perfect school for your children while you find the Tropicana Home of your dreams! For adults, moving over the holidays means starting off the new year right. Whether you have new years resolutions or want a fresh start at something in your life, your new home can help get you going.
