Affordable Housing Update

National Nonprofit partners to expand efforts in Texas

Nonprofit organization Texas Community Builders, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Business and Community Lenders (BCL) of Texas, is demonstrating the potential of delivering affordable, energy-efficient housing in Texas’ rural communities with factory built housing through a partnership with Next Step Homes, LLC and Clayton Homes.

A model home in La Grange, Texas, will serve as an example of what is possible for teachers, first responders, families and individuals of moderate income levels, and more searching for higher value, lower cost homeownership opportunities to promote asset building.

Rosa Ríos Valdez, CEO of Texas Community Builders, said, “We are proud to work with our partners to offer a model for affordable, energy-efficient housing that will be replicable in communities across Texas.”

City officials, economic developers, and members of the public will be invited to an open house and tour of this model home to explore the future of sustainable housing. An open house for home buyers and the public will be held on Saturday, July 8, with a second event for developers, real estate professionals, and officials on Friday, July 21.

Please visit nextstephometour.eventbrite.com to RSVP for the July 21 event, or nextstepopenhouse.eventbrite.com to reserve a spot for the public event.

Pricing for 3 bedroom, 2 bath homes starts from $149,000, including the land. Homes are highly customizable with optional features and a choice of layouts, and are built on a permanent foundation to ENERGY STAR® standards. Homes will be available for purchase or order as early as August 2017.

“This is a great opportunity to show the benefits of factory-built home,” said Stacey Epperson, president and founder of Next Step. “Working with Texas Community Builders, we hope to provide sustainable homeownership opportunities for more hard working Texas families.”

Home Sellers – Protect Your Vacant Home!

If you are no longer living in the manufactured home you have for sale, there are some important details to keep in mind. Read on to learn the best approach for vacant home sales.

Q: Does your homeowners insurance protect you when your mobile home is vacant?

A: Probably not!

Most homeowners believe that if they move out of their residence, their homeowner’s insurance will continue to provide coverage for the home. That is rarely the case. The coverage may continue for 30 days, but that is usually the limit, and quite often the coverage provided during that 30 days is substantially reduced. The same is true if you move out and rent the home to someone else.

A homeowner’s insurance policy is designed to cover the dwelling in which you live. If the dwelling becomes anything else, you need to change the policy. If you don’t have the correct policy, you can be denied coverage if you have a claim. Simply put: it isn’t worth the risk of lacking coverage, when the solution is so easy to fix.  Continue reading
