Buying a home can be challenging, especially if your credit isn’t perfect. Purchasing in a masterplanned community with a national homebuilder like DR Horton or Lennar Homes can help thanks to free builder programs that can make homeownership possible.
At South San Antonio planned community Mission del Lago, several buyers have been able to achieve their dream of homeownership through the DHI Home Buyers Club. This free service from DHI Mortgage is geared toward buyers who need help improving their credit.
Prospective buyers enroll in the club, where they “work with a personal Credit Consultant who will analyze your credit report and identify strategies for improving your credit worthiness,” they said. The end goal is credit that is improved enough to buy a home.
Lennar too offers a program to help homebuyers improve their credit score and purchase a home at Mission del Lago. The Home Buyer Solutions Group (HBSG) is a free program from Universal American Mortgage Company (UAMC) that assigns a Mortgage Credit Specialist to “create a customized plan designed to improve your financial ‘health’ and realize your financial objectives,” they said. “An improved credit score not only results in a better interest rate on your home loan and saves you money on your mortgage payment but it can also result in savings on your other loans and debt including credit cards, auto loans and homeowners insurance.”
The pride of the Southside, Mission del Lago is the perfect place to purchase with improved credit. The community offers a range of homes for everyone from first-time buyers to mature families to retirees, to veterans. Beautifully designed residences start from just the $150s with square footage spanning from 1,308 to 3,000+.
Located just five minutes from IH-37 and 15 minutes to downtown, the community presents a scenic, serene setting and a host of amenities including the 18-hole Mission del Lago Golf Course that winds throughout the neighborhoods. New amenities including a swimming pool, clubhouse, walking trails are being built starting late summer.
