I worked new home sales for many years and what was common was for certain upgrades to be included as specials or perhaps the additional appliances ( Refrigerator, Washer & Dryer). Builders aill also typically advertise all or some amount of your closing costs will be covered if you use their lender......although if you showed up with a pre-approved loan, you would also possible get those anyway.
I would suggest not to discount looking at resales either as you can get some good deals on them and they are more negotiable.

If I can be of any service to you, I have 21 years of experience helping people like yourself purchase homes in Raleigh and the surrounding Triangle area. I know you will love living here as my wife and I have since 1993. I may be contacted by using the information under my picture or through my personal website shown below.

Best wishes..Ernie

Many great answers here.

However, Zero down loans can be quite expensive. Working with a Realtor and a Mortgage Specialist can help you with your best options.

Work history, Credit history / score are all part of the process.

Best of Luck
