Greater R.I. Properties, LLC knows new construction
It's crucial to have the right agent on your team when shopping for new construction, and is here to help you navigate through your options in the North Kingstown area.
Buyers of new construction in a development don't like to see houses sold after theirs go for less money, so builders aren't as apt to bend on price. (You'll appreciate this behavior after you've bought a home in a development of new construction!) Regardless, depending on the market and the status of the project, there's sometimes room for negotiation.
Say a property has been on the market a while and the builder is deeply invested, then you have some room. The same goes for show or model homes that have been sitting for a while. However, if a home was recently completed, don't count on being able to get a deal.
In cases where a builder won't budge, try getting a break with other aspects of the transaction. Ask for help with the closing costs, or more amenities, like appliance upgrades, a garage door opener, a sprinkler system or landscaping, or an extended home warranty. Or take the contrary route. If a home is nearing completion, you can often save money by passing on suggested upgrades from the builder and installing things yourself.
Realize that just because a house is brand new, it doesn't mean that it is immune from needing repairs. 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.
