Sanborn Financial knows new construction
When exploring newer additions seeking new construction, having the right agent on your team is important. will help you navigate the sea of new homes today to pick one that's perfect for you.
Buyers of brand new homes in a development aren't happy when the homes that sell after theirs fetch a lesser price, so builders aren't as apt to bend on price. (You'll appreciate this behavior after you've bought a home in a development of new construction!) Regardless, depending on the market and the status of the project, there's sometimes room for negotiation.
Say a home has been on the market a while and the builder is deeply invested, then you have some room. The same goes for show or model homes that have been sitting for a while. However, if a home was just finished, don't count on being able to get a deal.
You can always ask for assistance in other ways when purchasing new construction. For example, closing costs are one way for you to save without lowering the price of the house. The same goes for amenities - ask for things appliance upgrades, a garage door opener, a fence or landscaping, or an extended home warranty.That can go the other way around, too. If upgrades are already in the plan, see if you can get the builder to remove them - you might be able to install them later yourself at a savings anyway.
Just because a house is brand new, it can still have its share of flaws. Be sure to get a home inspection before purchase so that issues are handled and also negotiate a home warranty. Then, about 10 or 11 months after purchase it's worth it to pay for an inspection and get anything else repaired before the warranty expires.
Finding you a new home that meets your family's needs and matches your budget will be my #1 goal.
