This Old House - Do-it-Yourself

I will pay you to buy a new home.

Are you presently looking for a new home in the Austin area?  Did you know it is in your best interest to have a professional real estate agent to help you find the best house and the best deal possible?  I was at an open house last summer and a couple touring the community asked me how  the mechanics of buying a new builder home worked.  They assumed that you find a house that you like and talk to the on site agent at the property and buy the home directly from them.  You can certainly do that, but your best bet is to have a buyers agent represent you.  Here's why: The agent on site works for the builder.  They have the builders best  interest in mind because the builder pays their  salary.  They are there to get the most they can for the home meaning getting you to pay full price.  They are usually very good at accomplishing this especially if you really want the home.

A buyers agent knows the on site agents and knows how to negotiate with them to get a lower price and knows about builder incentives they may be offering.   I am also presently offering cash incentives to use me as your agent.  If you choose me to represent you,  I know the  area's inventory and will help you find your dream home.  I will help you negotiate the best price,  I will be with you during the final walk through to make sure the house is in perfect condition and will attend the closing with you to make sure there are no mistakes in the builders favor on the contract.  I will also give you a cash rebate after the funding of the loan.  The amount varies and is based on the price of the home. 

My services are free to the buyer.  The commission is built into the price of the new construction home.  If you do not have representation, the builder simply keeps the commission.  It is unethical for a builder to reduce the price of the home if you buy without representation and that is how they get out of doing that.  

This is the biggest purchase of your life. You would not go to trail without a lawyer would you?  So, you should have professional representation when you purchase a new home and I'll even pay you to do so.  Call me at 512-963-8761 today for more information.

I am the managing partner for New Home Locators, a real estate agency servicing the Austin Texas area. I am also a buyers agent specializing exclusively in new construction homes. I specialize in new homes because they are the best deal in this very competitive market for my clients. New homes are less expensive because they are listed at a fixed price. There are no negotiations. With resale homes, in this sellers market the seller is often getting multiple offers on the home. I recently heard a radio commercial where the real estate agent stated that he had just sold a home for $50,000 over the asking price!

New homes are new. All the components of the home are brand new and will not have to be replaced for years. New homes have the latest technology and according to recent estimates can be 40% more energy efficient.. New homes have a much easier mortgage approval process and have closing incentives for specific inventory.

Most real estate agents focus almost entirely on resale homes. They do not know that much about new construction homes or know the builders. I have specicific training on new homes and am a certified new homes co-broker. I also know the onsite agents and builder representatives for most of the builders in the area. Most importantly, I have access to industry information about new home inventory in the Austin area. There is inventory available, but it sells very fast in this market. Please contact me if you are interested in a new home in Buda, Kyle, Austin, Manor, Elgin, Pflugerville, Georgetown, Lakeway, Dripping Springs or anywhere in the Central Texas Area.
