As a consumer in PA, you have the right to be represented by your own exclusive buyer agent should you choose to. The Ryan Homes Developments are cooperative with this, and work routinely with your agent to ensure that you are fully informed throughout the process of building. Your upgrades and options are part of this process. Based on the model you choose, there will be a base package price. Options/upgrades are typically additional, or tied into a promotion they may be running at the time of your purchase. If you choose an already completed unit, obviously, the options may already be part of the price since the unit is complete. If you are early in the process, you have the best opportunity for picking both your spot/site, as well as the options that meet your personal needs and specifications.
If you decide on using an agent, consider using an Accredited Buyer Representative. This is an agent who has additional training and experience working with exclusively with buyers. You will see a designation, ABR, after their name............Dolly Nicely, ABR, CRS, RECS, Realtor, Achieve Realty, Inc.
