Real Estate's an ever-changing industry and Trio is growing, here are some important updates to stay current, and future news to get excited for! Rather than hiring a paperboy to toss a newspaper on your doorstep, we thought we'd toss this newsletter into your inbox. 

Trio Summit East 2018

Join us for our Inaugural Trio Summit East event in late March (date to be announced). There will be industry and Trio updates, an advanced Trio training class, and a customer event for Trio Preferred Agents!

An app for "apps"

As agents, you're always on the go- guiding clients and staging homes. We developed our app with both agents, and clients in mind. With Trio Mobile you can accurately calculate property taxes, monthly payments, and other costs your clients can expect when choosing the right home. Avoid costly errors or even denials by getting accurate cost estimates for your clients and close more Trio transactions.

Lending Tree's recently published report shows the average interest rates for loans closed in the U.S. in December by credit score. By breaking own the loan averages by credit score range we're able to see how these interest rates effect down payment amounts. Those with a credit score of 620 to 639 see an average APR of 5% with down payment on average of 23%. Another illustration of the value of Trio – 0% down financing with comparable OwnOption interest rates ranging from 4.5% to 5%.

Spring time at Trio headquarters means two things: ramping up for a busy real estate season, and finally opening the doors to let the fresh flower filled breeze sweep through the office!

Trio Summit East 2018


Thank you to everyone who came out to join us at the inaugural Trio Summit East! We had a great turn out of Trio Preferred Agents and customers alike, and we can't wait for next year. We tried taking a lot of selfies at the event, but our marketing guy felt awkward ... so, if you have any photos from the day please share them on social media and tag us!  

Also, if you have any thoughts on the Summit or want to tell us about your experience send them to triosummit@thinktrio.com, we'll use it for future Trio Summits!

New website, who's this?

 
We're not only revamping thinktrio.com, but trioresidential.com also! The new sites will help you quickly find the information you need. Stay tuned for when they go live!

Trio mobile ... 'app-tly' designed

 
As a reminder, download our newly redesigned mobile app! Calculate accurate costs in the palm of your hand, uploaded contract documents and help get your client into a home sooner and easier!

Speaking of new homes


One of the best stipulations of Trio is that the house needs to be 10 years old or newer. We don't just want to get clients in a home, but a home they can be proud to live in! This will cut down on inspection costs, repair timelines, and ultimately give you confidence and peace of mind to help aspiring homeowners! We partner with local builders in Georgia, as well as some national builders!  Keep an eye out as we add more builders to our list!

Happy Spring!

Rather than hiring a paperboy to toss a newspaper on your doorstep, we thought we'd toss this newsletter into your inbox.

Update! We hired our neighborhood paperboy to deliver this newsletter to you. We keep telling him he doesn't need to bring in his bike, but he insists. 
Enjoy!

It's 2018. So why not get a closing gift to fit the time? Starting March 2018 we'll send all customers who close on their new home a Trio branded Amazon Echo Dot. Use it to set a timer for dinner, play your favorite song, or ask her to set a reminder at the start of each month to submit your lease payment to Trio! See what we did there?

Taking advantage of today's rates tomorrow


You can't call "dibs" on a house expecting it to be saved under the conditions of present day, that's silly. The house could go off the market. Interest rates might go up. The value of the house could increase with market demand. A lot of factors come into play when looking for a home, but in the midst of all these factors Trio's OwnOption let's you do just that*. In January 2018, those with a credit score of 620 to 639 saw an average APR of 5.12% with an average of down-payments on average of 24%. Comparing to the previous month, interest rates went up .1% resulting in an increase of average down-payments. Trio's OwnOption financing let's you lock in those rates before they go up - with a 0% down financing. Check out the full report here.

*Trio's OwnOption is a little more complex than dibs. Just so we're clear.

The Highlight Real 

Our first Preferred Agent highlight goes to Ken Lee. Ken's been a Preferred Agent for about a year and has moved on to train new agents on the ins-n-outs of Trio. 

"As agents we're always looking for tools, programs, and niches that can ultimately help the consumer into homeownership. All while separating ourselves from the pack. This is where Trio steps in. They've opened the door and made it realistic for families that may not be ready to make the largest purchase of the average person in America. They partner with consumers and agents to bridge the gap for those wanting homeownership, but aren't ready to take the plunge. I'm able to save, create and prospect a whole new channel of business that would normally get left behind or thrown away. I can even close another deal or 2 per month doing what I love best: providing solutions!"

Some BIG things happening at Trio HQ! So big, we couldn't decide what to talk about first. 

Hello Nevada!

 
We're coming to Nevada! We're now taking applications, and we look forward to helping families transition from renting to owning. We'll be making an official launch announcement within the next 60 days, so stay tuned! As an introduction to the state, we'll be hosting Trio Summit West in Las Vegas! (Scroll down for more details).
 

We launched a new website!

 
Check out the new look of thinktrio.com! It's not just a new layout, but we have some new tools added to the home page and our resources section. Calculate how much home your clients qualify for and what their estimated monthly cost will be right on the homepage! Not sure if they're ready to apply? Use our self-assessment checklist to ensure they meet all our program qualifications. Visit it on your phone, tablet or desktop! 

Hey, these number keep increasing!

 
Lending Tree released their monthly mortgage offering report for March 2018. The report breaks down loan averages by credit score range so we're able to see how these interest rates effect downpayment amounts. In March, people with a credit score of 620 to 639 saw an average APR of 5.43% with an average downpayment of 24%. Another illustration of the value of Trio – 0% down financing with comparable OwnOption interest rates ranging from 5% to 5.5%%. Check out February's report to compare with March's.

Trio Summit West

 
Yup! You read that right! We had a great turn out at Trio Summit East in Atlanta, and now that we're open in Nevada, we're hosting the first summit in Las Vegas! More details will follow as we prepare for the even in the fall. Stay tuned!

Trio shout out!


Congratulations to all of this years Boston Marathon runners, and to our Managing Director, Darryl Lewis! This years race was cold and rainy making the race that much more difficult. All of us at Trio HQ are very proud of him, but also glad to have him back in the office!
