Coldwell Banker Paradise knows new construction
It's key to have a knowledgeable agent on your team when shopping for new construction, and is here to help you navigate through your options in the Satellite Beach area.
In real estate, negotiation is always an option. However, with new construction, it depends on the builder and how long the home has been available. Developers in new additions don't like taking lower than their asking price because buyers already in the area expect new construction to be comparably priced to what they already purchased. (You'll appreciate that same courtesy if there are undeveloped lots near the home you eventually purchase!) But, depending on how far along the project is and current market conditions, a developer will often allow a few concessions.
Consider a property has been on the market a long time 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 finished, it's unlikely you'll 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 extra 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.
