(already built) that to be built. There is more to your home purchase than the final sales price, its all about the
contract your will sign. Realtors use standard contracts through out the state of Maryland. Builder new home contracts have NO set standards in Maryland and can contain any language the builder deems necessary to protect the builder.
Use a real estate professional to read and explain the contract before you sign it. The builder will pay a commission to a realtor to represent your interest in your home purchase and using a realtor has NO effect on your negotiated sales price. Your builder sales contract will contain 25 to 30 contract pages yet new home buyers get hung up on just one line of one page of the contract which contains the "SALES PRICE". Buying a home is much more than one line on one page. Your home purchase is a package of legal binding documents
If you could hire a "Buyers agent" to negotiate your next car purchase and get that service for FREE..you should do it.......I know I would.

You have a good question. I just spent time with a client, at the same builder last week. This community was almost sold out, so as a result, NV offered very little. Their closing cost help were next to none, and they wouldn't "throw in" any options. At the right community, with slow sales, you can negotiate more effectively. I've worked with builders and negotiated free hardwoods, free gourmet back splash, double closing help, $30,000 less in price and more. Again, it depends on the success of that specific community. The builder doesn't want to have homes up ready, and empty. If they do, then in those areas, you will have a lot of power over the terms. It never hurts to ask though. Better to be told "No", then to pay more unnecessarily.
You may call me or email me with any questions.
