The Trails of Dawson Creek is the Best of Two Worlds

Cobblestone_Front ViewBefore Gerstad Builders broke ground at the Trials of Dawson Creek, we imagined a community in a rolling, rural setting but with convenient access to some of our area’s best shopping, dining and schools. We think we created just that in this new community of single-family homes built with each family in mind.

In today’s world, everyone wants to customize and personalize everything, and with us, buyers have plenty of options. Choose from ranch or two-story designs, select from two to five bedrooms and up to three-and-a-half baths. Nine different home plans are available at The Trails of Dawson Creek, so empty-nesters to expanding families can find the perfect home.

Our plans have from 1,503 square feet up to 2,929 square feet, provided for a full, partial or optional basement. The choices don’t just end with the home design. Standard features can be personalized with finishes, flooring, cabinetry and trim. Buyers may decide to move a wall or add height to a ceiling. Our residents love the reliability of GE appliances and wood features from Colonist.Devonshire model for sale fea

The Trails of Dawson Creek is a fast growing area and sits in North Boone County near a regional airport. The summer months are particularly active in nearby The Village of Poplar Grove, with a Farmer’s Market, an ice arena, and a full slate of recreational activities. The community is served by North Boone School district, quick access to I-39 and I-90.

Homeowners get more than just the luxury of having a quiet, rural landscape. Based on the setting of the community, these new homes also qualify for our zero-percent down USDA program. This program allows families the opportunity to own a home without having a stash of cash available for a down payment. Also, due to the location, these homes also qualify for a break on mortgage insurance.

These USDA home loans are not subprime, they are guaranteed by the government and they are stable, 30-year-fixed-rate products. Borrowers must meet certain requirements and must fully document everything to qualify for the loan. While Gerstad will still require a down payment to start construction, that payment will be put into a mortgage and refunded to the buyer at closing.

To get more information on a home you’re interested in and to see if you qualify for zero-percent down and lower mortgage insurance, call Charles Mathison at 847-549-5663. To learn more about The Trails of Dawson Creek, visit our website or contact us.
