The Michael Group - Dallas Business Journal Top Ranked Realtors
Our recommendation is to base your decision on the product. By understanding what the building process includes and what the differences are from one builder to another, you will be able to come to an informed decision.
Regardless of location, long established builders have generally figured out what they need to do to establish credibility and maintain a favorable reputation...one that helps to sell their homes.
We have no association with Pulte or any other builders.
I like Pulte. They've always been one of my favorite builders. Typically they load up the model with upgrades and then tell you the house you want is going to cost $50,000 more to get all the upgrades you see and like in the model. I have thought most of their reps were straight shooters.....and a little less sales crazy than some of their competitors.
In the end though ALWAYs ALWAYs, ALWAYs use a realtor when purchasing a new home.
Before buying a new home read:
There are lots and lots of things that can go wrong, even when buying with the best builders.
It's nice to have someone with experience in your corner fighting for you.
Things do go wrong and the builder's rep is going to be fighting for the company not for you.
There's normally no extra charge to have a Realtor in your corner, so if you don't already have a
buyer's agent, call me at 214x675-6992
Alternately if you are brave enough knock on some doors or walk the neighborhood and talk to some neighbors - people love to talk about their homes.
A good agent can point out the differences, negotiate the best price for you with any builder, and provide referrals to inspectors and other vendors to help assure you of a smooth transaction. Builders pay our commission and respect REALTORS because we represent more than one transaction to them.
