As a buyer, you always have something that realtors like to call “buying power.” But when it comes to new homes and new construction builds, you’re not simply going through as traditional realtor to realtor transaction – instead, there’s a builder involved. Craig Levine has you covered.
When you choose to work with a realtor, you’re hiring the services of a trained, experienced, and dedicated professional whose sole duty is to represent you as their client throughout the process.
EXPERIENCED NEGOTIATORS FIND WAYS TO SAVE YOU MONEY
Experience and skill in negotiation can often lead to a significant price reduction. For instance; I once negotiated a price drop of 40k for a client by bringing the closing dates forward to allow the builder to count the revenue in that quarter. If you don’t know to look for these opportunities, you won’t benefit from them.
NEGOTIATING WITH BUILDERS
If you’re not much of a negotiator, or if you’re still new to the ins and outs of the real estate market, negotiating with a builder of a new home can be a daunting challenge and failing to advocate for your needs could result in a home that simply wasn’t designed for you – and that can’t happen. Throughout my time in the industry, I’ve helped over 1,200 families find the home of their dreams – and while not all of those homes were new builds, for the ones that were, I served as the point of contact between my clients and the builder. In this position, I worked to not only understand the unique needs and preferences of my clients, but I also worked to convey these needs, wants, and desires to the builders, so that all areas of customization were seamlessly aligned to the major pain points of my clients.
From there, the home that they eventually stepped into after closing day looked and felt like it was designed for them.
