I haven't heard of any bank (or lender) charging "points" in a long time. Interest rates are still very low. To address your question semantically...banks and lenders often charge a loan origination fee equivalent to 1% of the loan amount - which "could" be construed as a point - since points are usually expressed as an upfront percentage cost of a loan.

So...the bottom line is zero to one (on average) depending on your "point" of view.

Good luck to you.

You can go about this several ways but, I would suggest you speak with a surveyor first to determine how many lots you want to sell off and how much each lot size will be. A buyer will want a fresh survey if you are selling off from a larger portion of land most of the time. Good Luck!! ... more

Nancy Sorg answered:
Are you represented by a Buyer's Agent? Whether you are buying resale or new construction, a Buyers' Agent can help you through the entire process including sticky situations like these. If you are working with the Seller's (Builder's) agent or directly with the Builder, unfortunately you don't have anyone representing and working on your behalf. The process of buying a new construction home can often result in misunderstandings like these because there are the models that Buyers see that may have finishes that are't standard or that may come at a higher price than the list price - upgrades. Orders for these interior finishes take place often prior to the building of the foundation so it is not easy for buyers to make changes mid-construction. Even if the Buyer is involved early on, as it sounds like you were, supply can be an issue. As for your legal rights, the answer would be in the Purchase Agreement/Contract. As a Buyers Agent or as a Listing Agent, that is what I go back to if there are ever any questions. Good luck to you! ... more

Hi Susie,

The Groves are comprised of Charleston style homes built by JVI Construction. There are four 3 bedroom houses currently on the market listed from $260k to $310k. 3 of the 4 are New Construction. It is always a good idea to have a Buyers Agent looking out for your best interests when buying New Construction. I would be happy to represent you as a Buyers Agent if you would like and it will not cost you anything!

The amenities in the community include a swimming pool and walking trails. There are also sidewalks, which are a bonus in NC.

The Groves are conveniently located to downtown Apex and Cary.

Call me at 9197491117 or Email me at if you have any other questions.

You can post for sale by owners, look for a web site called FIZBER.COM as one example of how to
do it. Its not a popular subject on Trulia and lot of the Realtors are not aware of what is allowed to be posted so you will see many opinions on the subject.

In case you are interested in a 55+ community in N Raleigh, Carolina Arbors (Del Webb) is close to all of the shopping and restaurants that Brier Creek offers and is located 5 minutes away from RDU International Airport.

Home buyers seeking a newly constructed home often fall prey to the dual agency trap. When they arrive at the new construction community to view the models, they are greeted by a friendly on-site agent.

Remember that this on-site agent represents the builder and his / her job is to get the highest net price for the seller / builder.

If you do not want to get into a dual agency situation, I would recommend that you visit the new construction community with a Buyer's Agent.

A quality Buyer's Agent will be your advocate, look out for your best interests throughout the process and help you think of things that you probably would not on your own.

If you would like to work with a Buyer's Agent from the #1 company in the Triangle, please call me at 919.749.1117. I would be happy to help.
