New home Developers make so many of any one model. It's important to visit the site and learn their release plan for what models are specified for which site and when they plan to start any builds. That information changes all the time, and is not available on a website. You need to go there.
I caution you on going without a realtor though. Once you sign their log in, you can no longer be represented by someone. You're on your own and will do it their way, all the way. What a buyer's agent will do, is make sure all the questions that you SHOULD be asking, are asked. The ultimate goal is to be an informed buyer when it's such a significant purchase. And when you aren't in real estate all the time, you don't know what you don't know......Good luck!
