Beazer is a mid level builder. They are around the same quality of MI Homes and Lennar Homes.They are a builder who will not deviate from floor plans. The floor plans are what you see is what you get. You can make changes to cabinetry and flooring along with other things as well.

I am a Tampa area Realtor and would be happy to help you with your home search. My representation as a buyer agent can only benefit you. It coast you absolutely nothing. I am able to negotiate with the builder to get you the best possible deal with upgrades in the design center.

In addition I am an Employee Benefits Director for Heo Home Source. It is a non profit organization that is dedicated to helping teacher, law enforcement, firefighters and armed services members with their home purchases/sales. If you are a member of these special groups you can get rebates from $1600-S5,000 (Depending on the price of homes involved) all at NO cost to you.

Visit for more information if a member of these special heroes.

Call me I would love to help you with your home purchase. 727-267-2347

The home price or sq ft. price is what it is worth to you. Short Sales might appear to be cost effective, but you can wait for a long time and still not get the home and other properties will have been sold. There are a few properties in Connerton that are not short sales and that would provide you with the Tax Credit if you are eligible. Take a look at the home 21644 Billowy Jaunt Dr. It's one year new and has many upgrades. It's not a short sale.

Here in Washington State, the Seller purchases Title Insurance on behalf of the buyer to "warrant" that the title is marketable and clear.

The Buyer purchases Title Insurance on behalf of the Lender, because the Lender will tell the Buyer, "Well, Pay Cash, Then!" if the Buyer refuses.

Without insurance to back it up, a warranty deed isn't much better than an old pawn ticket.

Hi Richard!

Also, keep in mind that these fees can go up or down. I would suggest to have an HOA, so your neighbors aren't parking on their lawn or painting their house pink. CDD's are usually in master-planned communities where you see LOTS of amenities, security guards at gates, etc. With the market right now - builders & developers struggling - be careful (they are probably not going to tell you if you are interested in purchasing). Let me know if you would like me to run a search for you including/not including CDD/HOA. I used to work out in your area, so I am very familiar with the neighborhoods. Also, check out the new home links I have on my webpage. Have a great weekend!

I used to work for a builder in your area. I have seen discounts from $5,000-$35,000+. They will usually agree to a better deal for an inventory (already built) home vs. TBB (to be built). You can ask to see an option price sheet and figure out what you want in the home (how much it all will cost according to their sheet). I always saw them countering back and forth with numbers - if you put a contract in writing, they are more likely to accept it. (unless it is a ridiculously low number) Regardlesss, the process can be stressful and a Realtor can best negotiate for you. Also, the builder pays the Realtor - not you. Let me know if you need any help. 813-966-1571

Your deposit is refunded in full since your offer was not accepted. A REALTOR would also protect you by having othervterms such as inspection resuolts, appraisal and financing.

Lbk answered:
This is SO interesting to read about! First of all, mph does not have all the facts. This deal was in the contract stage for $325,000 but it was a corporate relocation and the company - not the sellers - let the deal fall through. It never went past the the initial contract state, so there was no inspection or official appraisal done!!! Believe me the sellers wanted the to make the deal! ... more
