Best Neighborhoods for Sports Fans

Categories: Atlanta, Georgia, Houston, LGI Homes, Orlando, Texas No Comments »

When you move into a new neighborhood, often the usual facilities like the nearest shopping malls, grocery stores, fitness centers, and schools take first priority, but what about sports fans? There is nothing worse than being hundreds of miles away from every major sporting event, so in this article we look at the best LGI Homes communities for those who can’t live without sports!

Minute Maid Park

Hidden Meadow is just a short trip from Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros.

Hidden Meadow – Houston, Texas

This is a brand new master-planned community, and it will almost certainly be the first choice of sports fans once they find out the immense level of sporting arenas it is in close proximity to. Hidden Meadow is just 15 miles away from downtown Houston, and you know what that means: you are just minutes away from one of America’s great sporting cities.

If you love the NBA, you’ll be delighted to learn that the Toyota Center, home of the Houston Rockets, is situated in downtown Houston. Baseball lovers can take the short trip to Minute Maid Park in Union Station to watch the Houston Astros in action. Perhaps the highlight of the sporting arenas in the city is the legendary Astrodome, home of the Houston Texans; the Astrodome is now called the NRG Stadium, but it was originally called “the eighth wonder of the world” when it was unveiled in 2002.

Cherry Lake – Orlando, Florida

By purchasing a home at Cherry Lake in Orlando, you’re sure to be a big hit with your kids, since Disney World is only minutes away! As a sports fan, you’re also in luck, because Orlando has been ranked in the top 10 in terms of great sporting locations for a vacation.

For a start, you have the Amway Center, where you can catch the Orlando Magic in the NBA. Soccer fans are also in for a treat, because the Orlando City Lions have just announced they will become an MLS franchise in 2015. Then you have the Orlando Predators, a former arena league national champion team, and the Solar Bears, who are the city’s hockey team. Finally, you can drive at up to 120 mph on the Richard Petty Driving Experience.

St. Joseph’s – Atlanta, Georgia

Philip's Arena

Philips Arena is home to the Atlanta Hawks

If you decide to live in St. Joseph’s, you will be minutes away from downtown Atlanta and in close proximity to several incredible stadiums. Atlanta is not a city that has had much luck with its sports franchises, but there are multiple major franchises active in the city, so you have a wonderful opportunity to see world-class action at your doorstep.

The Philips Arena in downtown Atlanta is one of the nation’s finest basketball stadiums and is home to the Atlanta Hawks. Turner Field is home to baseball’s Atlanta Braves, while the Falcons play in the awesome Georgia Dome and are the city’s NFL team.

As you can see, LGI Homes has communities all over the nation, and there are numerous opportunities for sports fans to enjoy the very best of what baseball, hockey, basketball, football, and soccer have to offer.

Atlanta is currently home to three LGI communities and a wealth of fun and entertainment for its residents. Perhaps one of the most exciting, particularly for those just moving into their new home, is the Atlanta Botanical Garden. This beautiful destination provides much inspiration for those wishing to start their own smaller scale garden. Although Avondale Springs, Semaphore Crossing, and Maple Park are all fairly close by, they make a great weekend trip to take in the plant collections and other heavenly natural surroundings. Family memberships start at just $99 per year, which will pay for itself in just a few visits.

Residents of Semaphore Crossing and Avondale Springs need only embark on a short jaunt to Little Five Points in Midtown Atlanta. This eclectic area features restaurants, such as The Tijuana Garage and The Vortex Bar & Grill. Enjoy some Lobster Pico Rolls, a Mexican Veggie Pizza, Borracho Nachos, or an order of Southern Fried Pickles while taking in the tantalizing tastes close to home.

Atlanta is also home to a number of sports teams, such as the Falcons, Braves, and the Hawks, plus NASCAR at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. It is also home to a slice of sports history in Centennial Olympic Park.

Probably the most popular, yet natural attraction, for residents of the Blue Hills, Glennwilde, and Magma Ranch communities is the Grand Canyon. A wonderful way to take in nature is to throw a tent in the trunk and camp out under the stars, perhaps at Mather Campground on the South Rim, or Desert View Campground. While touring the canyon, a river trip is a must and can range anywhere from one day to a 25-day trip aboard rafts on private or professionally guided tours.

My First Texas Home: A First-Time Home Buyer Program

Categories: Resources & Tips, Texas No Comments »

In October 2012, the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs announced a new program called My First Texas Home, an incentive program for first-time home buyers. Over $600 million in home buying assistance is available; more money than the state has ever offered before through similar programs. Since many of LGI Homes’ communities are located in the great state of Texas, this program is great news for Texans looking to purchase their first home in one of our neighborhoods. In order to learn how this program could help make your dream home become a reality, we’ve created this comprehensive guide to help you determine if you qualify.

Program to Assist First-time Texas Homebuyers

My First Texas Home is a government backed program designed to assist first-time home buyers in Texas.

What is the My First Texas Home Program? – It’s a government backed housing program targeted toward Texas residents who are first-time home buyers. It allows qualified Texans access to home loans with competitive interest rates, as well as down payment and closing cost assistance. This way, people who might not normally be able to afford all of the up-front costs of purchasing a home can still do so. The amount of down payment and closing cost assistance granted varies based on availability of funds, but everyone accepted gets access to the mortgage benefits.

Who qualifies for the program? – In order to qualify, you must be a resident of Texas and may not have owned a home in the past three years. You must also qualify under FHA, RHS or VA guidelines.

What kind of house can I buy? – The program allows you to purchase any new or existing single-family unit. This includes single-family homes, single-family units in condominiums and duplexs.

What kind of mortgages are available? – All mortgages offered through the My First Texas Home program are 30-year fixed-rate mortgages. Currently, the interest rate is locked in at 4%.

How do I apply? – You can prequalify for your mortgage through the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs website. Once you’ve found the home of your dreams, you need to collect recent bank stubs for all of your accounts, pay stubs for the past three months, tax returns from the past two years, your W-2 forms from the past two years, proof of current income and information about any long-term debts you currently have, such as student loans or auto loans. You can then fill out your application through the website.
