All of the homebuyers want the best deal they can possibly have when buying a new home. As an experienced real estate agent and a new home specialist. This is the best advice I can give to get the best deal when you are buying a new home. At the end of the day, slinging an offer at the builder isn’t going to get you the best deal. It doesn’t cost you anything to have a Realtor represent you because their commission is already built into the price of the new home. So if they are a mover and shaker that sells a lot of new homes and know the ins and outs of the builders and how to negotiate with new home builder than you can get the BEST Deal!
Hi everyone. It’s Lance Mohr, your real estate expert, and new home specialist. In this video, I want to talk about how to get the best deal on a new home.
This actually the question I get quite often. How do I get the best deal when I'm buying a new house? I wish I had an easy answer for you but the only answer I could give you is to make sure you're working and being represented by a real estate agent that knows what they're doing when it comes to new homes. Someone who sold a lot of new homes before, who’s selling a lot of new homes before that understands how builders negotiate and what you need to do. The reason, a lot of buyers will say “well yeah but I’m going to negotiate by myself”. I mean, at the end of the day, two things.
Number one, whether you are using a real estate agent or whether you're not their commission or their money is already in the price of that home because the Builder put in the price of their home when they were doing the numbers the prior year. I go into this on a lot more detailed one new home videos and if you haven't watched that I would highly suggest you do that. It’s up above. The other reason is, as a home buyer you are one and done. You’re not going to probably buy another home through this builder. None of your friends, family members that you're going to talk to about are going to buy a home. It’s like one and done. What does the Builder really care it’ business? You bring an agent in there, they know the agents that are selling. They look in their database and know the names. I had builders that I've sold so many homes before, I knew the President of the company. It’s just they know that stuff, they know who’s doing what, who isn’t doing what an agent that knows what they're doing is going to know how to negotiate with the builder.
It’s not just slinging mud against the wall and hoping you get a good deal. This is business that isn’t how you do it. I wish I could give you another answer. I would say get an agent, hire an agent that knows what they're doing. If you're in the Tampa Bay area, give me a call. I would love to work with you. If you're in another state or in another area in Florida, let me know. I have tons of contact with agents that are a new home specialist out there. They can help you get a better deal on a home.
The other thing you need to know, it also depends on the market where are at. Even though right now, we are in a phenomenally good market, I'm still having a lot a luck negotiating with the majority of all builders. With that being said there are some builders right now that just do no negotiation but I noticed over the years to homebuyers. It isn't necessarily how good of a deal the home buyer gets, it's just a matter of what most people want. They don’t want anybody getting a better deal than them. That's what I always tell my buyers. I say “I can’t promise you get what you want but I'll tell you this, someone's not to get a better deal than you”. You're going to get a better deal or just a good of a deal as your neighbor. In most cases a better deal.
If you have any questions at all let me know. If you need help finding an agent just fill out the form below and I will go ahead and get back to you. Just put your contact information in there.
