Gain an advantage when negotiating new construction in Tucumcari with McElroy & Associates as your real estate professional - 575 461-2100

In real estate, you can always negotiate. However, with new construction, it depends on the builder and the length of time that the home has been on the market. Developers in new additions avoid bending on 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 what the market is doing at that point in time, a developer will often allow a few concessions.

For example, if a property has been on the market a while and the builder has a lot sunk into it, 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 just finished, don't count on being able to get a deal.

In cases where a builder won't budge, try getting a break in other areas. Ask for help with the closing costs, or more amenities, like an allowance for window treatments, a garage door opener, a fence 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.

While you should always negotiate a home warranty so problems can be fixed, get a home inspection before your purchase regardless. Inevitable problems can be repaired (by the builder) before you move in and larger issues identified before they become your problem. Since an inspection is relatively inexpensive, some new home buyers get an inspection after being in the home for 10 or 11 months - that way, the builder can make the repairs before a 1 year warranty expires.

At McElroy & Associates, I'll make it my #1 priority to find you a new home that meets your needs and fits within your budget. Give me a call at 575 461-2100 to begin the search for your new home today.
