You really need to look at the homes first hand. It's not just the home, it's the amenities and the aresa. I'll give you an example. I owned a rental home in Avery Ranch and came across the exact same home and and builder in a development in Leander. The home in Avery Ranch would easily sell for $30,000 more than the home in Leander and they are just 5 miles apart.
Location is everything in real estate followed closely by amenities. So if the homes you are comparing are in the same community it really comes down to amenities. While it may appear to be similar you really need to see first hand.
If you would like me to do some checking on this for you please give me a call or email me with any questions. I help buyers get the best deals from new home builders. You can read my Trulia Blog on this at the link below:
While prices may seemed fixed with builders that is not the case. There are many ways to get a better deal when buying a home. Dealing with the new home builder alone is the single worst mistake new home buyers can make because the one thing you need to understand is that their job is to get the builder as much money for each home as possible. Their income depends on it.
Use an experienced Realtor to help you negotiate and navigate the home buying process that only begins when you sign on the dotted line.
Hope this helps.
