At this time many of the builders are offering incentives to buyers. With the phenomenal growth in the Charlotte area over the past several years, builders have been selling homes with a building time of 6 to 8 months. They have rarely had an inventory home to sell. With the changes in the mortgage industry and the seasonal slowdown, there are some inventory homes available. I have clients who are under contract for a home with a reduction of 50% off the upgrades on this home. The original buyers lost their financing before the home was completed. I also attended a realtor luncheion this afternoon at a home where the builder bought 3 in fill lots and built three luxury homes. One of these is still on the market. The builder has reduced the price below the comparable new homes in the area. This house is beautiful with over 4200 sq. feet and an unfinished basement. The builder will also finish the basement for $30 per square foot. There are definitely incentives!
