If you are buying to build, I have a spectacular construction loan program that requires a very small down payment... In fact, if you own the land already, the equity can even be used as the down payment!

I defer to the realtors answers on the square footage issue. Doesn't seem conducive to generating interest in the property though!

First off, remember that although the community sales manager may be very friendly....THEY WORK FOR THE BUILDER, not you! That said should be enough. Get a good FULL TIME real estate professional to represent YOU in the contract and negotiations. The paperwork will still be done on the builder's paperwork, and the salesman will still be doing the selections with you etc. but the agent will be there to make sure YOU
are treated fairly.

I've worked with Relocation sellers for over 8 years now. In my experience, you have to offer them something that makes it worth their while to deal with you, as opposed to taking their buy-out. Remember, when they take their buy-out, they generally do not have to worry about repairing any items that come up on a home inspection, which they may have to worry about if they sell to you.

Another strategy you may consider is to work closely with the listing agent to submit an offer the day the buy-out takes place. The transferee's employer does not want to own the house, so they have a vested interest to make a quick deal with you.

Hope that helps!
