The best negotiating tip I could offer would be to get yourself an agent. Negotiate it with the builder to include his/her paying a buyer agents' commission and then find a good local full-time agent who has experience with new construction.

There is no rule of thumb on how much to ask off a list price. As agents, we base our offers on comparable sales. So, you'll need that information in order to base an offer. Many times builders will not even negotiate on their asking price, or they will give you an "extra" included in the price. A local agent should know what the builder does generally when selling their properties.
Good luck!

It varies from state to state. For instance in AZ kitchen appliances are personal property but in IL they convey with the house. Check with a local broker for your state. As mentioned above the contract should spell out exactly what is included or not included. You can negotiate the contract either way. ... more

Janice Maynard answered:
Your home has probably sold by now but if not please feel free to contact me and I will go over my marketing plan on getting your home sold in the least amount of time and for the highest amount possible. Right now is the best time to put your home on the market as inventory is low and we are seeing homes sell very quickly and at times with multiple offers. I am trying right now to get two different homes and both are with multiple offers.

Janice Maynard answered:
I have worked with several builders and just saved my clients a ton of money in Glendalough..... You CAN negotiate. But you need a broker to do it for you. A lot of the times the prices are what they are depending of the home but I have had 9 new construction deals this year and have had the price lowered or extra things added at no costs. What builder are you using? I am a core broker with a few of them and get showroom incentives because of my prior business with them. Call me if I can be of any help. I look forward to speaking with you personally.

Ryan Harlan-Expert Broker answered:
Depends on a few variables, most national builders have marketing dollars set aside and appreciate paying realtors for brining all of their buyer clients to them so its not a big deal but often some have some rules defined in order to pay out your realtor. I would call your realtor if you are under an agreement and explain your situation. Best of Luck. Best to always use a good realtor when working w/ builders , the builders selling agents work for the builder and NOT you! Call Ryan 704/6084767 C/T or Ryanharlan1@gmail.com ... more

Good evening, Sandra:
There have been 14 homes listed as The "Santa Cruz". None are currently for sale. the field Model Plan is not a required field, but if this is the house you need, we can start in the communities where Shea built and send you updates daily to see if any Santa Cruz comes available. If you have a full time agent with a Masters degree in Planning with Finance and over two decades of experience, working for you, you will likely do better in negotiations. I'd be pleased to provide that service. If you appreciate this answer, please give it a thumbs up, or if this was the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click. ... more

Keith Beavon answered:
I am NOT a pro. I DID read though that the banks don't want to issue a fixed rate loan on any house for more than the market value, which sounds likely. What that means is that if the house is under-water, they won't issue a mortgage for more than the going market price. So the owner would be forced to put up the difference in cash between the unpaid balance of the old mortgage and what amount the bank wants to invest in the house. ... more

Daniel Fisher answered:
I cannot imagine what it feels like to face the possibility of losing a home. Training, continuing education paired with experience provides a sure process for evaluating and guiding homeowners through their options. While the options are not ideal, the goal is to discover workable solutions and get back on path to financial stability. My clients have found strength in the active role that they can play in avoiding foreclosure. Because a foreclosure can wreak havoc on credit and affect current and future employment status and other long-lasting effects, avoiding foreclosure should be a primary goal.

I can help the homeowner navigate through a variety of options. Below I’ve listed some of the most common alternatives to foreclosures that homeowners can choose from:

1) Reinstatement
•• Benefit: Does not require mortgage company or lender approval.
•• Drawback: Requires a homeowner pay all missed mortgage payments, fees and penalties.

2) Forbearance or Repayment Plan
•• Benefit: Allows the homeowner repay all missed mortgage payments, fees and penalties over time.
•• Drawback: Requires finances to pay current mortgage payment plus agreed portion of back payments owed.

3) Mortgage Modification
•• Benefit: Reduces monthly mortgage payment based on current income. May also reduce principal loan balance.
•• Drawback: often require full documentation loan underwriting to qualify borrower for new loan. Government sponsorship of program is only available for a limited time.

4) Sell the Property
•• Benefit: Allows homeowner to avoid foreclosure and harvest some of their equity.
•• Drawback: In many cases today, homeowners do not have sufficient equity to sell their property without negotiating a short sale (see next solution).

5) Rent the Property
•• Benefit: Allows homeowner to keep property indefinitely.
•• Drawback: Rent may not cover the full cost of property ownership and maintenance. Collections, evictions, restoration and re-renting the property can have high costs. Loss of capital gains exemption if property not used as primary residence at least 2 of the last 5 years.

6) Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure
•• Benefit: A successful deed in lieu transaction, borrower signs over title to the lender, which agrees to not pursue a deficiency judgment against the borrower. Some lenders give cash for keys to vacate the property.
•• Drawback: Requires that a homeowner vacate the property, and a deed in lieu is often reported to credit bureaus the same as a foreclosure.

7) Bankruptcy
•• Benefit: There are ways an attorney can preserve a primary residence through a bankruptcy.
•• Drawback: If a homeowner cannot afford their bankruptcy proscribed mortgage payment, they can still lose their home to foreclosure. Bankruptcy will prevent the purchase of another home for 3+ years, possibly shorter if no payments were missed prior to the change in title

8) Refinance
•• Benefit: In some cases, this will lower payments.
•• Drawback: In today’s market, refinancing will almost always raise mortgage payments and is an expensive process.

9) Service members Civil Relief Act (military personnel only)
•• Benefit: If qualified, this will lower payments on all consumer debt in addition to mortgage payments.
•• Drawback: Must be active military to qualify.

10) Short Sale
•• Benefit: A short sale allows the homeowner to avoid foreclosure and salvage some of their credit rating. This also keeps foreclosure off the individual’s public record, and in many cases will allow the homeowner to avoid a deficiency judgment. Borrower may qualify for another mortgage in as little as 24 months (as opposed to five years for a foreclosure). Bankruptcy will prevent the purchase of another home for 3+ years, possibly shorter if no payments were missed prior to the change in title
•• Drawback: Short sales can be a trying process in which a homeowner is best served by contracting with a qualified real estate agent to guide the way.

It has never been more important to pick the right agent!
With the right assistance, the stress of facing foreclosure becomes manageable. I have received the knowledge and training necessary to assess all possible foreclosure alternatives and pursue homeowners’ best options. I continually attend on-going training seminars and receive immediate notification of any changes in legislation or procedure that affect the housing market in general and distressed properties in particular.

What this means to you is that when you work with me you are working with an agent with the most informed and up-to-date resources available! Short sale seems like the best option. And it is not too late. We'll need to engage an attorney, and can have your home on the market with professional photographs within 4 or 5 days after listing agreement.
