George Cheek and Rhonda Wilkin, sales counselors, welcome the opportunity to show any of the model homes at Jim Walter Homes’ model park in Tulsa.
For 50 of its 60 years in business, Jim Walter Homes has helped make the “American dream” a reality for many customers. Jim Walter Homes offers traditional, fixed-rate home financing for its patrons. Rhonda Wilkin, sales counselor for Jim Walter Homes, says, “We have our own in-house financing department that offers great incentives to buyers, such as no points and no closing costs.”
With the media spotlighting home foreclosures across the country, Americans are scared to death when they think about financing new homes. “We have $250 million in in-house financing, and we don’t play games with adjustable rate mortgages or interest-only loans, ” Wilkin mentions.
About today’s market, Wilkin mentions that customers should put their confidence in larger, stronger companies that put stable, risk-free financing within reach. “As America’s largest on-your-land homebuilder, Jim Walter Homes offers financing that works with individual needs, including credit issues,” says George Cheek, sales counselor. “And for qualified landowners, we offer no points, no closing costs, no payments and no interest during construction.”
The President II, which has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, is the company’s best-selling home. With 1,892 square feet of living space, it is a very livable split plan. The master bedroom is on the opposite side of the home from the other three bedrooms. And better yet, a fifth room, which serves as a “bonus” room, can be used as a sewing room, study, hobby area or nursery.
All Jim Walter Homes have a wide variety of options, some of which include cement fiberboard siding, brick construction, crawl space or slab foundations. Aluminum, insulated, double-pane, low-energy windows are standard in all Jim Walter Homes. Selections are option-driven with customers choosing what best suits their lifestyles and budgets.
According to Cheek, now is a great time to shop and make choices for a new home. Plans to have a new house can be finalized by next spring. Visit Jim Walter Homes’ model park, located at 12303 E. Skelly Drive in Tulsa, and take a hands-on tour of the models available. A sales associate is always on hand to offer advice and answer any questions about financing and building your new home.
