However, even with new homes, there are two contingencies that should almost always be included. One is a home inspection and I recommend that you handle this within 12 days+-.
The second is an appraisal contingency. If you are purchasing in a seller's market where several offers push the price over the asking price, the home may not appraise and you may not have the cash to handle the difference, in which case the opportunity to renegotiate will be important to your success. So, check with your lender to find out how quickly the home will appraise, add a buffer of a few days and that will become your financing period.
Be careful and have fun finding your new home. Best of luck.
Most sellers will look at the best offer - and that doesnt mean highest price. If you go in with all your documentation, a strong letter of approval from a reputable mortgage lender, a substantial earnest money and limited time frames, it may put you in a better position than others.
I recently won out a bid with a contingency to sell my clients house, however the house was already under contract for cash and my client made a strong offer to purchase.
