Work with a REALTOR
Don't settle for the Sales Agent at the builders office. They are there to sell you their house plans, their process, their construction, and their price. When you select a Realtor to represent you before you ever call the builder, it puts you in the driver seat. This allows you to be more objective about the price, the builder, the materials, and the final decision. We have all been sold on the Sales Agent only to find out the product did not live up to the same great personality of the Sales Agent that sold it to you.
Not All Builders Are Equal
When considering builders for your next home, make sure you obtain a list of standard features. When working with a New Construction Specialist at Century 21 All Service we will ensure that this list is accompanied with the price quote from each builder. Price is only one of the aspects in considering builders. If Builder A has a price $15,000 less than Builder B, you need to know how that is possible. Is it due to Builder A buying products in bulk, or is Builder A only providing vinyl and carpet flooring while Builder B is providing custom hardwood floors and ceramic tiles.
Ask for Recommendations
Ask the builder for a list of names, phone numbers, emails of previous clients. We will assist you in this category as well. Since we work with buyers and sellers every day and have helped many New Construction clients in the past we will have additional contacts that may not be provided by the builder so you are able to obtain a clearer picture.
