Sharon Gunter: Can you tell us the value a home builder gets when building a home?

– [Freeman] Welcome to Texas Top Homes where home buying, selling andfinancing are all simplified.

I'm your host Freeman Sawyer.

With me is my co-host Tracy Wesman.

Today we're chatting withone of Texas top builders Sharon Gunter with First Texas Homes.

– Sharon can you share with us some of the value you get when youbuild with First Texas out there in the preserve,mainly some of the things that are included with your home that maybe aren't includedwith the other builders or even in other First Texas communities.

– Sure.

Some of the things that are included that I think are reallyexceptional, first of all, are our cabinets throughout the home.

They truly are custom cabinets.

They're not box cabinets, every single cabinet in the home is custom built.

So I always tell peopleopen up the drawers, look at it, see how it's built and compare that.

There's not a bunch of little nails and that sort of thing.

– [Freeman] Alright soyou've got beautiful bathrooms and beautiful kitchens.

– [Sharon] Exactly.

Yes, they're very, they'rejust really above most builders.

Also we are an energy star builder.

A lot of builders are energy star but one of the things we also add are the tank-less water heaters.

To me, that is one of thebest things in the world.

I actually had them comeout and put one in my house and I can take a showerall day long (laughs) and not run out of hot water.

– [Tracy] I need one of those.

– I absolutely love that,that is one thing that most builders are going to charge you for.

– [Freeman] For a tank-less water heater? – Exactly.

Then we have the great wholehome automation system, the Savant System.

That is really cool, I can even program it which is, that's saying something.

So that you now havecontrol with your phone or whatever for music, cameras, the heating and air conditioning, the garage door opener, thelights, everything in your home.

That comes standard withour First Texas homes and there isn't anotherbuilder that I know of in the Dallas Fort Wortharea that has that.

That's really important, itcomes with some extra things like the surround sound pre wire, pre wire for cameras, pre wire for speakers.

You can even set upscenes so like at my model I have a scene that turnson the lights 15 minutes before I get there towork, turns them off.

Turns off the music, turns down the heater and the air conditioning.

If you're interesting in that, – [Freeman] I think that's awhole new wave that's coming to the home world is home automation.

It sounds like you guyshave easy home automation and what we've actuallymet the guys from Home Pro and they do a great job for you guys.

They're a lot of fun, but the Savant Systemsounds just wonderful.

– [Sharon] It is, andit used to be, years ago only really high end homes, I mean multi million dollarhomes had this sort of available.

Today First Texas hasthat in all their homes.

– [Freeman] And I'm thinking by the way you made that commentthat even you could do it, it does not require teenage tech support? – Oh no, no, no, no.

No I can do it.

I actually understood it when he was showing me how to do it.

Now that's something.

– That's great, that's great.

Sharon if folks wanna come out to Rockwell and pay you a visit andpick out a home site, what's your website and phone number.

– [Sharon] Our website is FirstTexasHomes.

Com and our phone number at the preserve is 972 722 1719.

How To Sell Utah Home When Out Of State

My name is Tracy Leabo and my house was locatedin South Ogden.

It was a rental for a few years and I just decided I couldn’t holdon to it anymore and I needed help selling it.

I got the help I was looking for! It ended up selling very quickly.

I foundyou guys through my parents.

Basically my parents had sold a property.

They’d hadreally back luck with the prior Realtor.

He’d just drop the ball continuously and they hada hard time with it.

They turned to Joel and Ann and they sold their property so quickly.

I was just as thrilled with the process! I really expected it to be on the market forat least a couple months.

It was shocking! To get a call after three days that therewas an offer on the house, and the offer was good, and it was decent.

It was a huge relief!I wouldn’t have to make a trip up to Utah in order to sell the property or sign documents.

With the emails and the way I was able to sign the documents was just, it was so easy!I was really floored! Being able to contact Ann and Joel at prettymuch any time was great.

Any time I had a question they were very quick to get backand that really helped with the out of state issue.

It was a non-issue.

With the marketing, I love the way my housewas photographed! Everything looked really good.

It looked very pristine.

Facebook, andput it online.

I have no doubt that that’s why it turned around so quickly.

Call Annand Joel right away! They’re on top of their game.

They’ve really got the selling ofhomes down to an art! They did a great job with me.

They did a great job with my parents.

And I think that anybody would benefit from contacting them!.
