Low Rates, No PMI, Prices as Low as $139,000: USDA Financing Spells "OPPORTUNITY"

January 11, 2013.

If you meet certain requirements, you can actually get into a home of your dreams at Zillah Lakes for ZERO - DOWN with an interest rate in the low 3% range. Best of all mortgage insurance, which kills many lower-down loans, is virtually non-existent in the USDA program. It all spells opportunity. This year is the time to invest for a lifetime at Zillah Lakes, right in the heart of Washington's emerging wine country.

The US Dept of Agriculture promotes these low-cost loans to help revitalize rural areas. Let them re-vitalize your choices for relocation, living in "Cadillac" luxury on a golf course, at "Chevrolet" prices. These are the best loans available for new home purchases and put the monthly payment at lower-than-rent prices.

We have homes available from $139,000. You won't believe the quality! Or bring your own builder!

Go our Photo Album: to scout out the dream of living at Zillah Lakes. This year, new amenities are on the board — including improved and extended nature trails, a connected lake system, the community swimming pool, and four great holes of golf, plus an event center and a lodge being built this year.

Call NOW! 800-242-9032 or 509-728-0099.

Wine Country Cottages Now!


The bluff overlooking the first two holes of the Zillah Lakes Golf course is a perfect place for our new WINE COUNTRY COTTAGES. These are small 2-bed cottage homes with adult appointments. They start at $139,900 for 800 sq ft, and also feature a larger 916 sq ft unit priced at $149,900.

Sized and priced to meet current economic realities, the cottages are like the "vacation cabin" of old — a perfect getaway home and great for radical lifestyle simplification (downsizing) for singles and couples. The rooms are generous, with a full master suite you have to see to believe, two bathrooms, and finely appointed with hardwood floors, custom glass cabinets, granite dining circle, and a 300 sq ft indoor-out covered pergola-patio — the better to experience the long lazy days and evenings of wine country.

Combine this with fabulous USDA $O-Down Loans, and you are looking at OPPORTUNITY. And it may not last long: the economy is in recovery, housing prices are still low, low, low, but will rise as newer Zillah Lakes amenities scheduled to come on-line later this year start to increase the value of all homes in the project...

Invest with friends for a vacation getaway for as little as you might pay for a few weekends of hotels. Let us help you recapture part of your monthly payment by renting it out as part of our Wine Getaway Program when you’re not planning to use it. Or, better yet, become part of the neighborhood! Move in and enjoy neighbors, friends and all the community has to offer — there's always something happening! You’ll find there are many ways to make the purchase and payments much easier than you might think!


Come and visit this spring. Try out our challenging, but friendly golf course, experience our pool and our nature trail and tour the homes.

Call NOW for an appointment! 800-242-9032 or 509-728-0099.
