Builder is going to atempt to steer you to finance thru his pre arranged mortgage company this is not your best bet.
They will also attemp to make the title insurance policy contingent on you using their mortgage company.
Do NOT fall for this!!!! If this happens you will be paying above market interst rate which will cost you tens on thousands more over the life of the loan, this is another area unsuspecting buyers are taken advantage of.
Make sure you have financing arranged ahead of time.
Let me know if you need help.
The salesperson in most cases make you feel like you are getting a great deal but in fact they there to make sure the builder is.
Please check out the agent you are working with and make sure they have the experience needed. I would be more than happy to assist you in the purchase, I received my New Home Sales Representation as part of my Accredited Buyers Representative designation and bought a new home in July as well has assisted in several purchases for my clients.
Give me a call if you would like to discuss it furture.
Again, I would love the opportunity to visit with you and advise you about the different areas in Pearland - what neighborhoods have been successful - which ones have taken quite a while to get off the ground, etc.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.

So you and your Husband are interested in buying near the Pearland and Hwy 45?
To help answer your questions, I would need more information about the exact area to be able to
pull market area comparables.
The comparables will tell us what's been sold in the last six months in the area.
Also, since it's a new home, there are items that can be negotiated INTO the price of the home.
Like finishes, appliances, closing costs, home warranties, etc.
I would be happy to represent you and answer the many more questions that will
come during your buying process.
For your best interest be sure your are ready with a lender.
Sometime going with the builder's preferred lender offers some opportunites but
I've negociated before the items offered by the builder for going with their preferred lender while my clients
closed with their preferred lender.
Please contact me for further discussion if you would like!
I'm ready to help and you are very smart in researching ahead of time!
Best of research and I hope to hear from you Sarah!
I'm happy to help! You would be amazed at what having a good representative can get you in negotiations. Please give me a call or shoot me an agent and I can get moving on some things for you. Look forward to working with you soon!
