Here’s Why…


Reason #1 – Low Mortgage Rates

Home mortgages are at some of the lowest rates since the last 40 years. The 2019 home mortgage rate dropped 6 basis points in the last two weeks and dropped 29 basis points since May. An average 30-year fixed home mortgage is approximately 3.625% to 3.75% within the Clarion area. (Rates taken from area lending websites as of 9/30/2019.)

Reason #2 – Get What You Want

2019 is a seller’s market. Homes on an average are selling within 30 – 50 days of the listing. With fewer choices, you are less likely to get the features you want in a new home. Building a custom designed home with SMI Homes lets you pick the floor plan that is right for you and your family.

Reason #3 – Modern Features

Building new means modern appliances, fixtures, and floors (we remember, all too well, shag carpeting!).

Reason #4 – Don’t Have to Worry About Major Repairs

Enjoy a peace of mind from unwanted major repair surprises that often happen in an existing home purchase.

Reason #5 – Energy Efficient

Save money on electric bills and heating/cooling expenses right from the start with newer appliances and energy efficient HVAC systems. We also offer custom energy upgrades to fit your needs and budget.
