Points of consideration in the new constructed home-buying process.
When buying a new home remember that it’s different than buying a pre-owned home. There really isn’t the normal offer, counter offer on price. Builders aren’t emotionally attached to the homes they construct. It’s their business and they usually aren’t enthusiastic on negotiating price. For one thing, if they cut the price for you, the next buyer is going to expect a similar discount. For another, they need to show their own lender that homes are selling for the prices they expected to.
So what can you negotiate for? Well, just about everything else. Upgraded cabinets or flooring? Negotiable. Closing costs? Negotiable. Anything that isn’t going to show up in the county records, to lower the sales price can be negotiated.
It’s also true that most big developments come in phases.
Buyers, who jump early, getting into one of the first homes available, sometimes get a sweeter deal. Why? Because the builder wants to build interest in the development as well as start some cash flowing to help finish the next phase. If the housing market is strong, builders can raise prices with each new phase of the development. That doesn’t mean you’ve lost out by buying late. You can still negotiate some sweet upgrades from a builder who wants to complete that development and move on to the next.
