Gone Fishing in Houston’s Sunrise Meadow – Safety & Success Tips

Sunrise Meadow's Private Lake - Houston, TX

Residents in one of our communities—Sunrise Meadow in Southwest Houston—are blessed to have a private fishing lake as one of their stellar neighborhood amenities, and they’re in prime time to enjoy these lakes as spring and summer bloom. In Sunrise Meadow (as in all of our communities) LGI Homes has held true to its mission of creating beautiful, functional family-friendly neighborhoods stocked with opportunities for healthful and recreational enjoyment. And we know that these amenities are even better when a lazy day of fishing with family and friends is just a short walk away from the house.

So residents and prospective buyers, beware: the call of the angler life is a hard one to shy away from. You may be a fishing fanatic before you know it, enjoying the beauty of the outdoors and the fun of family time spent together, all within the bounds of your own neighborhood! Should you decide to give lake fishing a try, here are some tips for safety and success:

 Be sure the whole family is prepared for time in the sun. Use sunscreen, pack plenty of water, and when on shore, keep an eye out for small children coming too close to the water.

 Get the right materials. Nothing is more frustrating (especially to children) than going out fishing, and never getting a bite. Find out ahead of time the types of fish with which the lake is stocked, and choose the right bait, weights/bobbers and line for those fish. If you’re unsure, personnel at a sports store or bait shop should be able to lead you in the right direction.

 Choose the right time of day. Throughout the year, you’ll find that fish are responsive to the changes in the seasons—storms, sun, heat, wind and temperature—so fishermen have to be responsive as well. You’ll find copious amounts of information online that cover the best times to go fishing.

 Go over the safety rules. While a simple and relatively-easy pastime, fishing still requires a presence of mind and adherence to basic safety rules. If fishing from a boat, ensure that everyone in the party wears a life jacket. Go over procedures with children on what to do should an emergency happen on the water. Review casting safety (looking around and behind you when you cast, and letting others know you’re about to throw), and, if you’re fishing from shore, review rules about getting near or into the water.

 Have fun! It’s not everyone that is able to enjoy the relaxation and quality time that fishing engenders, right within their own neighborhood. This is one amenity that can be enjoyed by the whole family, throughout the seasons, for years to come. Sit back with your fishing rod in hand, enjoy the scenic beauty, and thank your lucky stars that you’ve made an LGI Homes community your home!

Common Questions for First-Time Homebuyers

LGI Homes - Common Questions for First-Time Homebuyers

Why should I buy, instead of rent?

Answer: A home is an investment. When you rent, you write your monthly check and that money is gone forever. But when you own your home, you can deduct the cost of your mortgage loan interest from your federal income taxes, and usually from your state taxes. This will save you a lot each year, because the interest you pay will make up most of your monthly payment for most of the years of your mortgage. You can also deduct the property taxes you pay as a homeowner. In addition, the value of your home may go up over the years. Finally, you’ll enjoy having something that’s all yours – a home where your own personal style will tell the world who you are.


How much money will I have to come up with to buy a home?

Answer: Well, that depends on a number of factors, including the cost of the house and the type of mortgage you get. In general, you need to come up with enough money to cover three costs: earnest money – the deposit you make on the home when you submit your offer, to prove to the seller that you are serious about wanting to buy the house; the down payment, a percentage of the cost of the home that you must pay when you go to settlement; and closing costs, the costs associated with processing the paperwork to buy a house.

The more money you can put into your down payment, the lower your mortgage payments will be. Some types of loans require 10-20% of the purchase price. That’s why many first-time homebuyers turn to FHA for help. FHA loans require only 3% down – and sometimes less.

Closing costs – which you will pay at settlement – average 3-4% of the price of your home. These costs cover various fees your lender charges and other processing expenses. When you apply for your loan, your lender will give you an estimate of the closing costs, so you won’t be caught by surprise.

J.D. Power and Associates Reports: LGI Homes Ranks Highest in New-Home Quality in Houston

Categories: Creekside Village, Houston, LGI Homes, News, Sunrise Meadow No Comments »

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif.: 15 September 2010 — Trendmaker ranks highest in customer satisfaction with new-home builders in the Houston, Texas, market, according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2010 New-Home Builder Customer Satisfaction Study released today.  In addition, LGI Homes ranks highest in the New-Home Quality Study also released today.  Trendmaker is headquartered in Houston while LGI Homes is headquartered in Conroe, TX.

The downturn of the housing market—along with intensified competition for a very limited pool of home buyers—has reinforced the importance of customer focus for new-home builders,” said Dale Haines, senior director of the real estate and construction industries practice at J.D. Power and Associates. “In this buyers’ market, builders that are attentive to customer needs and focus on relationship building stand the best chance of enduring through the market recovery.”


2010 New-Home Quality Study

The J.D. Power and Associates New-Home Quality Study, now in its fourth year, measures the occurance and impact of construction problems experienced by new-home owners in 17 markets.  The study utilizes an index that measures problems in 41 categories for the following aspects: bathroom; drywall; electrical/appliances; flooring/stairs; home exterior; interior paint; kitchen; windows/doors; and other significant problems.

LGI Homes ranks highest in new-home quality in the Houston market. Home quality in the Houston market has improved from 2009, averaging 850 in 2010—up by 18 points from the previous year.
