Live Free for a Year with Keystone Custom Homes

Pennsylvania home builder, Keystone Custom Homes, is wowing their buyers with an incredible deal. When home buyers purchase one of Keystone’s new homes, the builder is offering to pay the buyer’s mortgage payment for the first 12 months of ownership. With 44 communities located throughout the Pennsylvania and Maryland areas, the Live Free for a Year program can be taken advantage of by many.
Keystone’s acclaimed single-family homes range from the low $140s to the $400s, so there is something for everyone’s budget. The builder even provides buyers with great financing options to help make the purchase even easier. Their preferred lenders will also work with buyers to help them select the financing option that best fits their lifestyle.
The Live Free for a Year program is Keystone’s unique “housewarming gift” to their buyers. They offer other home buying specials as well, including the popular House Swap program. This provides incentive to buyers who are concerned with taking on two mortgages upon purchasing a new home. With the House Swap program, buyers can simply “swap” their old home for a new one, and eliminate the burden of taking on two mortgages.
It is differences like these that make Keystone the number one home builder in central Pennsylvania, and one of the top 100 home builders in the nation. A percentage of each homes’ sales also goes to HOPE International, a non-profit charitable network founded by Keystone’s CEO, Jeff Rutt.
