November 8, 2017 by Rausch Coleman

If you’re getting ready to purchase your first home, Rausch Coleman Homes can help get you get started with our comprehensive set of home buying tools. From financial tips, to detailed information about our new home communities, we provide our buyers with the information they need for every step of the home buying process.

Guide to Homeownership: Our practical homeownership guide is the ultimate tool to get you started in the home buying process. Get the facts about why it’s beneficial to purchase a new home, the latest statistics about renting vs. buying and tips from our real estate experts about becoming a first-time homeowner. We provide financial tips about different types of home loans, ways to prepare for your mortgage application and methods to save for your 20 percent down payment. Once you’ve moved into your Rausch Coleman home, refer to our Guide to Homeownership again for the best tips for moving day, getting settled in your new place and all the tools every homeowner needs.  

Preferred Lenders: We are dedicated to constructing high-quality homes at prices for every family, so you might be surprised how affordable it is to build with Rausch Coleman Homes. Of course, buying a home always requires a budget and a clear idea of what you can afford. Typically, the biggest advantage to using a preferred lender is the fact that they have all of the HOA documents in hand, usually have appraisers that are already familiar with the community, have most of the mortgage documents ready to go (in template form), are familiar with the contract, have underwriters in house that already know the property and are ready to make the mortgage process go more smoothly, and--if you are using an FHA loan--the lender often has all of the FHA information too. Again, one of the biggest advantages to using the preferred lender is the fact that they already have so much information about the community and can likely get the loan done more efficiently and with slightly less costs than other lenders who are not familiar with the developer or product.

Find Your New Home: Our website makes it easy to find your new home with our interactive map and detailed list of communities. On the drop down menu in the center of the page, choose your desired location: Northwest Arkansas, Jonesboro, Metro Little Rock, Oklahoma City, Tulsa or San Antonio. This will bring up a detailed map of the region, including roads, highways and town names, with location pins for each community. Click on a pin to view the community name and contact information, or scroll down the list for more detailed information about each specific neighborhood. 

Credit Evaluation: Thanks to our strategic partnership with Premier Credit Consulting, we can provide homebuyers with all the financial tools and assistance they need to purchase their new home. This registered and bonded credit service organization allows buyers to receive a completely FREE credit evaluation and tri-merge credit report. Just fill out your information on the website (no financial information is required to fill out the form), and a professional Credit Consultant will get back to you within 24 hours.

Live ChatWe understand that purchasing a new home can be overwhelming. Our Live Chat feature enables potential buyers to connect with a real person who possesses a thorough understanding of the homebuying process and all Rausch Coleman Homes communities. By chatting with our representatives in real-time, buyers know that they're getting the most up-to-date information about our available homes. To access our Live Chat feature, simply visit any page of our website.
