Realty Associates of Santa Rosa, Inc. knows new construction

When driving to new construction Buyers of new construction in a neighborhood aren't happy when the homes that sell after theirs fetch a lesser price. Knowing this, the builder or developer often won't bend on price.

You'll appreciate this behavior after you've bought a home in a development. Regardless, depending on the market and the status of the project, there's sometimes room for through newer developments looking for new construction, having an experienced Realtor with you is vital.  we will help you navigate the sea of new homes today to pick one that's made for you.

For example, if it's a recently completed home, you have little to no negotiating powers. But if the home has been sitting fully furnished, like a show or model home, and there haven't been many offers - then the builder might be willing to work with you. The longer the home has been on the market, the more the builder has invested.

You can always ask for assistance in other ways when purchasing new construction. For example, closing costs are one way for you to save without lowering the price of the house. The same goes for amenities - ask for upgrades within an allowance for window treatments, a garage door opener, a sprinkler system or landscaping, or an extended home warranty. That can go the other way around, too. If upgrades are already in the contract, try to get the builder to remove them - you might be able to install them later yourself at a savings anyway.

Realize that just because a house is brand new, it can still have its share of flaws.  Be sure to get a home inspection before purchase so that issues are handled and also negotiate a home warranty.  Then, about 10 or 11 months after purchase it's worth it to pay for an inspection and get anything else repaired before the warranty expires.
