I would say that every situation is different.....lot, community and if the home is a spec home make a lot of difference. I have been able to help several clients with new construction and at least get something in the deal to make it worth while....whether it be appliance inclusions like a fridge or washer/dryer, blinds, closing costs or assistance with price reduction, there is always some angle we can work. Let me know if I can be of assistance by emailing me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great weekend!!
You should be aware that everyone the builder has you meet with works for them. But when you come in with a New Home Buyers Agent Advocate you will have someone working exclusively for you, always in your best interest. from the first contact through negotiations and construction to the final settlement and closing. Every decision. All the time.
The great thing with the advertized price of homes builders sell, is that a Realtor's commission is included so you can have a New Home Buyers Agent Advocate expertise at no additional cost to you. Buyers who fail to choose exclusive representation from their own Buyer Agent Advocate should expect to miss many thousands of dollars in unadvertised upgrades and savings. Because the built-in commission is not taken off of the price, your choice is essentially putting extra profit in the Builders pocket without any benefit to you. You should read the Trulia Blog "Buyer Agent Advocate for New Home" If you have a full time agent with a Masters degree in Planning with Finance and over two decades of experience, working for you, you will likely do better in negotiations. I'd be pleased to provide that service. ... if you appreciate this answer, please give it a "thumbs up", or if this was the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a "best answer" click .
The sales rep works for the builder and is looking out for the builder's best interest....not yours.
I would love to go over this in more depth and explain other advantages and how I can help you get the very best deal possible.
