Your buyers agent should be assisting you . Unless an agent is physcially on property see conditions and etc. like sticking someone in a closet with door shut without a light on asking them to read a document

Prices are really good in this community. You're in the right range.
ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS use a realtor when you buy a home, even a new home.
We'll save you typically time, money, and headaches.

There are a couple of issues you should know about this community before you buy.

Call me and we can discuss.

The Hills of Kingswood in Frisco is a great community. Based on my experiences Grand homes have some great homes for around $100 per square foot. However the actual price you end up paying depends on several factors; such as the lot size and finish out options you choose.

Well it looks like you are looking at Grand Homes in their. I think with new home builders you have more of a chance to get a big discount if you play the game the right way. Its a nice subdivision and the homes have nice build outs.

If you are not working with an agent I would like the opportunity to assist you in the process. I worked for new home builders for 8 years and I specialize with selling my clients new homes. I know exactly what to ask for and how to get it done. The builders pay us so its free of charge to you. Please contact me as I think I would be an asset to you in this situation. Thank you

It is realistic to get a 4,000 square foot home there for around $400,000. In fact a 4,220 square foot home was sold in May for $395,000 by Grand homes.

As you know, the Hills of Kingswood is a beautiful new development in Frisco. They are currently in the first of four planned phases of the community. When complete, there will be 500 semi-custom and custom homes. There are 25 homes completed so far and several more currently under construction.

As others have said, your actual price depends greatly on several factors; including the lot you choose, the builder you choose, and the finish out choices you make. At this time homes are being built by Grand homes and by custom builders of the buyers choice. Custom builders must meet the standards of the architectural committee. Additional builders will be added in the future.

You should never attempt to negotiate the purchase of a new home without the representation of a professional Realtor. Kupke and Tackett have experience in negotiating new home sales and are very successful at getting you the best deal; including a good price, the lot you want, and usually additional builder concessions.

In addition, we already know key people at the Hills of Kingswood. We would be happy to accompany you on a visit and to represent you as you meet the staff and tour the homes.

All our best,
Diane Tackett (214-336-7505) and Joe Kupke (214-288-6608)

The prices on new homes can very significantly depending on what amenities and upgrades you choose. It all depends on what you want. Definitely find a realtor to represent you when buying - new construction or existing homes. Also, realize that new construction not perfect construction. I recommend a home inspection on new construction as well as older homes.

If you have any questions, or need a realtor recommendation in the area l'd be happy to help.

Based on my personal experiences, I'd suggest some negotiation. The resale market has some phenomenal offerings under $100 per square foot, too. Hopefully, you toured with an experienced Realtor who works Frisco, even if buying new.
Have a blessed day!

You need a REALTOR to help you with this question, and hopefully you are represented by a REALTOR when buying a new home. Homebuilders pay commissions to REALTORS representing homebuyers and it doesn't effect the price of the home. Commissions are paid from a separate budget and cannot be used by the home sales representative to lower the price of the home to a consumer. To answer your question, there have been two Grand Homes sales reported recently and they were for $93 and $114 per sq. ft. Grand has a sales approach that puts a homebuyer on contract, and then takes the homebuyer to a decorating center to choose options and upgrades. As a result, the prices paid are in wide variance because of what homebuyers choose in upgrades. If you want more information, please call Brian Patrick...look me up on Google. I have worked for homebuilders and now I have a Brokerage license and can represent you and help you get the best deal.
