I agree with quite a few folks on here, a longer warranty would be nice! Since that's not likely to happen, paying the closing costs, building a good home and being reasonable to work with would be at the top of my list!
The best thing is being more competitive on the price. Not charging outrageous fees for upgrades. My clients just put in a top of the line oven in their new home. The oven could have been purchased for $9,000 but the builder told them they could only get it for $16,000. Didn't leave my clients with a good feeling.
