New Year, New Home: Our Guide to Purchasing a New Taber Home in 2024

January 4, 2024

Welcome to a new chapter - the start of 2024, a year filled with promise and the potential for new beginnings. At Homes by Taber ®, we believe there's no better way to embrace the new year than by turning the key to your dream home, but we also understand that it can be tough to know where to start. With over 20 years of expertise as Oklahoma’s Favorite Builder ®, we’re here to help guide you along the exciting journey of homeownership, providing the ins and outs of everything there is to know about buying a new home in 2024. As we continue our legacy of crafting Proudly Overbuilt ® homes in the heart of our vibrant Oklahoma City communities, this blog is your comprehensive guide to making 2024 the year you step into the home you've always envisioned.

Securing financing

Embarking on the exciting journey of homeownership in 2024 includes securing the right financing, and it’s important to understand your options. At Homes by Taber, we value the importance of flexible options tailored to your needs. We’re proud to work with an array of qualified lenders with attractive loan options, each designed to cater to your specific financial goals and preferences in your new home journey. To help alleviate the uncertainty of interest rates, consider fixed-rate mortgages for stability and predictability in your monthly payments. Additionally, explore buydown options to temporarily reduce your interest rates in 2024, making your dream home even more affordable.

As the new year unfolds, you’ll want to keep an eye on potential interest rate drops, and our team will be here to help you navigate the shifts in the market. With Homes by Taber by your side, you can consult with our preferred lenders to explore exclusive options designed to make homeownership more accessible. Our strong partnerships with these lenders open up possibilities that might not be available through conventional channels, ensuring you have a range of financing choices that align with your unique situation. To explore your options, it’s best to speak with our team of experts to discover the best path toward securing your new Taber home.

Finding the right area

When you’re searching for your new home in the new year, choosing the right location is crucial, and at Homes by Taber, we’ve created an exceptional collection of desirable communities throughout Oklahoma City to cater to a variety of needs. Whether you're seeking something closer to downtown OKC like our Moore and Edmond communities, or a secluded suburban setting like our Norman and Piedmont communities - we have the perfect Taberhood for you. We leave no stone unturned when creating these sought-after communities, from top-rated schools and nearby attractions to one-of-a-kind amenities and beautiful homes. Browse through our new home communities and look through the phenomenal features each one provides to find the area that resonates with your lifestyle.

Our team is here to assist you in navigating the different communities, offering valuable insights into the local lifestyle, schools and nearby attractions. This personalized approach ensures that you not only find a house you love - but also a neighborhood that feels like home. Beyond the physical aspects, we understand that the sense of community and connection to your surroundings is equally important. Our expert team will guide you through the diverse neighborhoods, helping you envision the lifestyle each one offers, so you can make an informed decision that aligns with your vision of home.

Narrowing down your floor plan

In addition to choosing the right community, you’ll undoubtedly need to know how you want your new home in OKC to look, feel and function. With a myriad of thoughtfully designed floor plans, Homes by Taber gives you the flexibility to choose the layout that suits your lifestyle. Whether you're a growing family, a couple looking for a cozy space or an individual wanting room to grow, we have a floor plan to match. From the functionality of the John to the flexibility of the Korbyn Bonus Room, we’re here to help you narrow down your options, taking into consideration your preferences for bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen space, outdoor living and other essential features.

With three distinctive Proudly Overbuilt product series (red, white and blue) differing in price point, square footage and features, you can rest assured that you’ll have a range of options to choose from. Each series boasts more included features as standard than any other homebuilder in the Oklahoma area, guaranteeing that whichever option you choose, you are making a sound decision. Whether you prioritize affordability, spaciousness, or a comprehensive set of features, Homes by Taber has carefully curated each series to cater to a diverse range of preferences, ensuring that your new home in 2024 not only meets - but exceeds your expectations.

Understanding the different ways to buy

At Homes by Taber, we understand that everyone's timeline is unique. That's why we offer three distinct ways to purchase your new home in 2024: building from scratch, choosing an under-construction home or selecting a completed home. If you're eager to personalize more details, building from the ground up allows you to create a home that truly reflects your vision. For those looking for a quicker move-in, our under-construction homes provide a balance between customization and a faster timeline. Alternatively, if you're ready to move right away, our completed quick move-in homes offer a turnkey solution - ready for you to truly feel at home in 2024. 

For those who are looking to settle into your new Taber home by the summertime before the start of the next school year begins, you’ll want to start your new homebuilding journey in January to set the stage for a timely move-in. With our efficient building process, combined with our commitment to quality, you can rest assured that your new home in OKC is ready for you to create lasting memories.
