The Not-So Scary Truth about Homebuying
  • Written on October 09, 2020

October is here and with it comes a month filled with frights. From bone-chilling stories to movies so scary you can’t even watch, but there’s one thing that shouldn’t make you scream: buying a home. At Stanley Martin Homes, we’re here to make sure the homebuying process is more like a walk in a park instead of through a haunted house.

  • Our team is here to help you through the maze. In horror movies, it’s always after the group splits up that trouble happens, right? Stick with our team of professionals and you’ll escape that fate! We have experts throughout the southeast who can answer all questions, demystify the process and break down an easy-to-understand path that will get you from your old home to your new one with the least amount of legwork. They work with you one-on-one to make sure that you’re getting the attention you deserve and advice that is tailored to your family’s needs, wants and everything in between.
  • Use our secret weapons. If you’re not able to visit a neighborhood in person, we have plenty of online resources available to help you through the process. From our homebuyer 101 guide to a home technology webpage, we help cut out down time spent browsing the internet for advice. You can also check out our Design Center pages to help envision what your ideal home will look like – we have photo galleries and a Pinterest page to help guide you! Chat with our New Home Consultants for any additional questions you want answered along the way.
  • Finances don’t have to be frustrating! We know money is a scary subject to talk about, but our team can make it a bit easier to tackle. First, using our mortgage calculator you can quickly determine what the right budget is for you. Next, our team can work with mortgage partners we have on-hand to help compare rates, fees and get you pre-approved fast. With interest rates at an all-time low and multiple payment programs available, there are various ways to fit the home of your dreams into your budget.
  • Your home should be a dream, not a nightmare. Each family is different and needs different things from their house. Whether it’s additional space for extended family, a rooftop terrace for kids who like to stargaze or a secluded bedroom for parental privacy, there are plenty of options to make a home yours. Our neighborhood sales managers can talk you through the ins and outs of our homes and the floorplans that could work for you.

You’ve made it through – wasn’t so scary, right? Now hang back and let the countdown to closing begin! Move-in day will be here before you know it and you’ll find there’s no “scary” at Stanley Martin Homes.
