10 Tips To Save You Time And Money. Read This Before You Visit Your First Model Home!

Should you be thinking buying a new house, here are 10 points to consider before you visit your first model home in order to qualify for the rebate.

# 1. Get in touch with us, and get registered for the rebate. Once you visit the sales office, and you did not register us as your broker, most likely the builder won’t allow you to register us later as your representative. 

# 2. Seller's Agent/Broker vs. Buyer’s Agent/Broker. Here is a good point to remember, the sales agent in the model home represent the builder, not you. As a buyer, you can work with a buyer’s agent/broker at no cost to you. Working with us even has more advantages because you get a cash back rebate in addition to it. We can help you get more knowledge and understanding about new home construction, warranties, financing, differences in pricing, quality, even lot selection, so that you get the most value for your money.

# 3. A Builder For All Reasons. Like a tradesman, builders vary in their fields of expertise, some specialize in craftsmanship, others for their innovative use of space, and those who offer below-market financing...Determine your own specific needs and preferences then shop around for a builder that best address your requirement.

# 4. Get The Facts About Your Builder. Before you make a final decision, check out the reputation and the financial strengths of the builder. Get “spec sheets” on home features covering everything from floor plans to energy efficiency, including lot availability and delivery of your home.

# 5. Check Out The Neighborhood. Learn as much as you can about the community, discover what amenities it has to offer, find out from local land-use officials what else is planned or could be constructed in the area, investigate if financial reserves have been set to aside to build or replace major amenities like scholls or community roads, review the rules for the homeowner’s association, or find if one will be set up.

# 6. Choosing Options and Upgrades. The least expensive the base price of the house is, the more options and upgrades you can add without fear of overpricing it for the neighborhood. Options are items the builder installs during construction, such as adding usable space like a sun-room or a powder room. These features can add the most to the resale value of your home. Be sure to take advantage of builder incentives that offer free upgrades or credit off the sales price.

#7. Negotiations. Often buyers don’t realize that there may be some room for negotiating price, upgrades and options. Also some “premium lots” are prices higher and are sometimes saved to be sold last. Keep in mind that typically, all lots cost the builder the same. Builder may offer some discounts or special financing to help close a sale.

# 8. Be Sure The Contract Works in Your Favor! When spelling out the terms of the contract with your builder, ensure to protect yourself by having contingencies written into the agreement, such as: placing your deposing in trust account; detailing your upgrades; allowing you access to the construction site to check on progress; a 30-day advanced notice of the closing date; an explanation of what the fine print means in the warranties of the builder and manufacturer.

# 9. Financing. What’s Best For You? Some builders, especially in high-volume communities that place large numbers of loans, can offer special financing packages. However, because “home loan” lending is highly competitive, you have many financing choices other than the ones offered by the builder, so shop around for everything from rates to lender fees. Appraisals, inspections, surveys, attorneys and closing fees can vary as well.

# 10. Just Because It’s New… Doesn’t Mean It’s Perfect! Yes, it’s new and typically it’s built with modern, durable, low maintenance, stronger, quieter and safer materials. But because nothing is perfect, even if it’s new, consider hiring a reputable, licensed home inspector. Then create a “builder punch list” to address any problems or/and concerns before closing. Consider budgeting for items to be modified or added on later on. The Cash Back Rebate might help you add to your budget after closing.

Let's go over again Your Options When you Are On The Market To Buy a New Construction Home in 2019!

  1. Go On Your Own. Just walk into any new home model and work directly with the sales agent. You give up your right to be represented by a Licensed Broker/Agent, and the builder keeps the commissions that are reserved to be paid to a real estate broker/agent.
  1. Use A Traditional Broker. The builder will pay a real estate broker/agent a commission to represent you (typically 3%). Because the real estate agent does not work for the builder, they can be more objective and look out for your best interest.
  1. Use The House Squad, where you not only get the benefit of real estate representation, but also 2% cash back! DON'T LEAVE MONEY ON THE TABLE. HIRE US!
