I am just returning from writing 2 purchase contract offers for my clients for Townhomes with KB in Fremont, one of them happens to work at CISCO!
All my collegues are right, you should use a Realtor so one can negotiate for you, not just the price, but options too and other things on your behalf. There is so much that goes into negotiating for a home. If you want I can give you the referral of my client to talk to, before you decide to work with me, or another Realtor, if you already have one. Each negotiation is different, so we need to talk!
IMP Question is, have you already been to KB in Fremont /Sunnyvale/San Jose, or elsewhere?? and registered with them? If yes, then you CANNOT register a Realtor now! They want you to register WITH your Realtor the FIRST time you visit any of their projects.This is so with a lot, if not all of the Builders. As if you havent done so, they do not pay us our commission, and you go in un-represented!
Check out my website and testimonials, and contact me for helping you out in any way I can.
Thanks, all the Best,
