Best New Home Builder – Jagoe Homes Wins PLATINUM Award in the Courier & Press Readers’ Choice

Jagoe Homes took top honors as the Platinum Winner for Best New Home Builder in the 2019 Evansville Courier & Press Readers’ Choice Awards! Each year this publication hosts the Readers’ Choice Awards where the citizens in Evansville, IN and surrounding counties can vote. Readers vote on their favorite businesses, healthcare, services and restaurants in the area. This year, the Courier & Press held its first online-only ballot entry form.

On behalf of the entire team at Jagoe Homes, please accept our sincere thanks for voting us the Platinum Award in the Courier & Press Reader’s Choice poll. Although we are being honored for building outstanding new homes, we are certainly not new to the industry. Since launching in 1939, we built over 7,000 homes throughout Bowling Green, Henderson, Louisville, and Owensboro, Kentucky, as well as Evansville, Newburgh and Huntingburg, Indiana.

Last year, Jagoe Homes took home the Gold for Best New Home Builder for the Courier & Press Readers’ Choice Awards. In 2017 & 2016, Jagoe Homes received the Platinum Award as well! Readers’ Choice Awards are particularly humbling for us because it is a designation given to us by homeowners, affiliates and citizens. Jagoe Homes also won the Readers’ Choice Award for the Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer and the Best of Owensboro Living this year.

We look forward to serving Southern Indiana and Western Kentucky as the Best New Home Builder in 2019 and for years to come!

Thank you for Voting Jagoe Homes Best New Home Builder in Evansville!

NEW Interactive Design Tool

Design Your Jagoe Home with Our NEW Interactive Design Tool

We are excited to announce that we have recently implemented a brand new, interactive Design Tool on our website! This tool helps our customers to visualize what their new Jagoe Home will look like once the exterior is completed. Additionally, it allows them to click on features of a home that are not included in the base home plan. For example, if a customer wanted to add a fireplace, covered patio or drop zone in the family entry, this is easily visualized by clicking through the options that are available for that home plan.

tool

 

With this Design Tool, you can select your favorite color options!

You can now select exterior color options such as your door, brick, siding and shingles to visualize what your Brand New Jagoe home will look like.  In addition to exterior choices you can also select from several floor plan options, such as adding a 4th or 5th bedroom, extended or covered patio, double-bowl vanity, and fireplace. There are MANY options when you start designing your home, and this tool helps to narrow your selections down to what you love!

Some of our homeowners choose brown tones, some like brighter, neutral colors, and others like a more classic red brick. For example, the Cumberland Craftsman C2 Elevation, a 2-story home featuring 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a 2-car garage and 2047 living square feet, can easily be modified to fit any family’s style and needs.

 

Within the Design Tool, you are also able to view real photos of examples of the home, and Take a Virtual Tour of the home if it is available for that plan.

When you are all done, don’t forget to SAVE your favorite selections and SHARE them with your friends!

How To: Prepare Your Credit to Purchase Your New Home

Rate this content: 1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (1 votes, average: 5.00 out of 5)

How To: Prepare Your Credit to Purchase a New Home

Your credit score plays a big role in the purchase of your new Jagoe Home because it affects your ability to secure a mortgage through our preferred lender, FBC Mortgage. Conventional mortgage lenders will typically want a FICO score of at least a 620, but those who score above 580 may still qualify for an FHA loan. With that in mind, here are some steps you can take to prepare your credit before applying for a mortgage.

Review Your Credit Report

Good credit is increasingly important for other things such as landing that new job or getting the best deal on insurance. You should check your report annually to contest and remove any erroneous information. Many people use Credit Karma, Experian and annualcreditreport.com for a free report.

Do NOT Open New Lines of Credit

New credit and even just inquiries can lower your FICO score. New debt has to be factored into your ability to qualify for your loan. A common and tempting mistake is to open new store credit cards to save on a purchase.

Do NOT Close Extra Credit Card Accounts

Closing account can actually hurt your credit score by increasing your “utilization ratio.” You should also refrain from transferring credit card balances to a new zero percent card. It’s smart to save on interest, but it will damage your score in the meantime. That can undermine your loan approval.

Do NOT Close Judgment and Collection Accounts

Paying off judgment and collection accounts can actually cause credit score to fall, especially if the accounts are old. It’s usually best to satisfy these at closing, but you should always ask your loan officer first.

Make ALL of Your Payments On Time

Keeping an emergency savings and automating payments so you won’t forget or have things lost in the mail are two great ways to assure timely payments. A recent 30 day late mortgage payment can actually drop your score by as much as 100 points. That’s huge! You may pay a late fee, but you may also pay a higher rate on financing and insurance. That can add up to many thousands of dollars over the life of a loan.

A Low Score DOES Affect Your Interest Rate

Low credit scores will often trigger “loan level price adjustments,” which will translate to higher interest rates.

Home Affordability Reaches 18-Month High

If you took an economics course, then you know that the U.S. economy goes through highs and lows, ups and downs, and that affects affordability in the housing market. In fact, the housing market is a fantastic indicator of how well our economy is doing. Forbes reports that we are in the nation’s longest economic expansion… ever. Surely, if we are at an all-time high, we must dip back down eventually. After Wall Street saw a severe routing on Wednesday, the average person may think that we are heading into our next recession.

However, it’s important to read between the lines. The truth is, it’s never been more affordable to own a new home.

affordability

If you couldn’t afford a home 18 or 6 months ago, you may be able to afford one today.

The nation’s economy has been growing for 121 consecutive months. Now is a fantastic time to lock in your interest rate and get started on your dream home. Interest rates hover around 4% today, which is still a major low compared to the 8% interest rate before the last recession.

With Jagoe Homes and our preferred lender, FBC Mortgage, we can get you prequalified for your brand new, Jagoe Home today! Build on your own site in Southern Indiana or Western Kentucky, or choose a home site in one of our beautiful, conveniently located communities in Bowling Green, Louisville and Owensboro, Kentucky, and Newburgh, Evansville and Huntingburg, Indiana.
