D.R. Horton is one the largest home builders in the United States and Louisiana is one of their markets. In the Baton Rouge area they are building in multiple locations including Meadow View in Zachary, LA. Currently D.R. Horton plans to build around 300 homes in Meadow View and possibly more. Neighborhood amenities include green space and a neighborhood playground. In the city of Zachary there are restaurants, shopping, a new YMCA, Lane Regional Medical Center, and of course, the #1 rated school district in Louisiana. Zachary is around a 30 minute drive from downtown Baton Rouge.
Meadow View is an excellent choice for first time homebuyers. D.R. Horton is providing $5,000 in closing cost assistance should you chose to use their affiliated title company and mortgage company, DHI Title and DHI Mortgage. Additional assistance is provided for those in “occupations of service” such as veterans, active military, teachers, and law enforcement. And, if you happen to be a member of USAA then there’s an additional small bonus. These homes are also located in a rural development area, a special designation from the US Department of Agriculture, that may make you eligible for 100% financing. That’s no down payment! While income criteria apply for these loans, you may be surprised by the generous allowances for families and individuals. And, the homes are located in flood zone X, a low risk area, where flood insurance should not be required by your lender.
This is a great opportunity to buy a home in the Baton Rouge area at an affordable price in a community with great schools and a small town feel.
