Camillo Companies Launches Next Move Program for First-Time Homebuyers

July 7, 2023


Camillo Companies announced today the launch of its new homebuyer incentive, the Next Move Program. Available exclusively for SimplyHome residents, the program features special offers when buyers purchase a home with Legend Homes

“We're driven to leave a lasting impact on the communities and customers we serve, whether it be renting through SimplyHome or purchasing one through Legend Homes,” Camillo Companies CEO Margaret Potter said. “With the Next Move Program, we've packaged a unique set of benefits designed to help people find ‘home.’” 

The Next Move Program is a special incentive package offered by Camillo Companies through its respective rental and retail brands, SimplyHome and Legend Homes. Participants can effortlessly transition from leasing a SimplyHome residence to owning a Legend Home thanks to four key benefits*: 

  1. Flexible Lease Dates: Renters can terminate their lease before it expires without incurring fees, which can account for an average of up to $4,000 in savings. 
  2. 10% Rent Payback: SimplyHome residents can receive 10% of the rent they’ve paid on their SimplyHome residence (up to $5,000) to use toward the purchase of a Legend Home. 
  3. $15,000 in Closing Costs: Renters can receive up to $15,000 toward closing costs on the purchase of a new Legend Home when they use a preferred lender. 
  4. Down Payment Assistance: Qualified SimplyHome residents can also access down payment assistance programs when they use a preferred lender. 

SimplyHome renters can immediately take advantage of the program. Benefits are available to renters who have lived in a SimplyHome residence for at least three months and are only available to qualified homebuyers. 

“Camillo Companies exists to open doors. The Next Move Program is proof of concept for that vision,” Potter said. “By leveraging our tremendous rental and retail footprints across Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio, and beyond, we’re able to take an integrated, intentional approach to home- and community-building that suits our customers' standards, budgets, and lifestyles.”
