Why use a Realtor® for new construction?

  • No cost to you.
  • We research and locate new construction so you do not have to.
  • Receive honest information based on your goals and needs.
  • Disclose information to you that the developer and/or sales counselors may not, about the community, costs, area and much more.
  • Discuss finance options that meet your needs and goals, not just the builders.
  • Provide information on many other developments, not just the one that you are visiting at the time.
  • Advise you on the best upgrades for your needs and goals, and help evaluate the costs.
  • Access to possible Realtor advertised “deals” from the builder
  • Explain details and obligations of the contracts and addendums.
  • Access to possible discounts or rebates for multiple transactions (Selling and Buying, for example)
  • Determine what developments and communities are best for you.

CUSTOM HOME & PRODUCTION BUILDERS

When purchasing new construction, the on-site sales representative represents the builder and their builders’ interests. But who represents your interests? You can choose to have a REALTOR® represent you when purchasing new construction—at no cost to you.

Vanacor Properties has fostered beneficial relationships with all of the quality new home builders in Houston, Texas & surrounding areas.  Builders from all prices ranges and all types of new and custom homes in Houston and The Woodlands, and their surrounding areas, welcome all of our new buyers with open arms and encourage Realtor participation to help you during the new construction home buying process.  We can assist you in finding the perfect custom or production home builder, and/or architect, to build your new home in Houston, Texas and surrounding areas.

As a note of caution, you should never visit new home communities without your real estate agent or buyer broker present. The builders usually have a policy requiring the Realtor to be present the first time you visit or they will not agree to pay them to represent you as your buyer agent. This is very important to you since there are many issues to watch out for when buying new homes or new construction property from a builder. Since professional new home Realtors are trained to know what to watch for, you should make sure that they are always informed of your house-hunting plans.

COST TO YOU

Absolutely Nothing!  The process is similar to when we bring a client to any new home or pre-owned home.  Our fee is paid by the Seller.  Any compensation given to a REALTOR is recognized by the builder as a marketing fee for the referral and has absolutely no impact on the final cost of new homes in Houston or surrounding areas.  In fact, in most cases we are able to negotiate a better price or incentives for all custom or production built homes since we have maintained a relationship with the builders from bringing qualified clients to them on more than one occasion.  Builders will NOT reduce the sales price of their homes in lieu of using a Realtor. Again be assured that all quality home builders welcome, expect and encourage REALTOR participation.

SAVINGS TO YOU

Are you getting what you’re entitled to have…both in quality and value?  We always make the builder aware of what our client expects to receive. It is our job to negotiate as many upgrades as possible and get you the best possible price for your home, as well as any “extras” that might be available.  Our knowledge of the Houston, Texas and the surrounding areas and all facets of buying new construction homes from quality proven custom home builders is something you should depend on when making your decision on which custom home builder to use and what you can get for your hard earned dollar.

Sometimes, it is possible to find a completed home being offered by a builder at a substantial discount over the latest official “new build” price list. These “specials” are offered because the builder must pay interest on the construction loan once the property is complete and they do not want the property sitting vacant. If you can find one of these properties that you think you might want to buy, make sure that there are no specific reasons why other buyers may have rejected the property – a professional Realtor can help you determine this.
If you need to wait until the builder can construct your new home, then be prepared to wait four to six months depending on your price range. Custom homes usually take six months to a year to build, so be prepared. You may find it best to locate a short-term rental property while you are waiting for completion.

RESALE, APPRECIATION & PROFIT

Give your new construction home the best opportunity for appreciation at resale.  Questions concerning location, builders, architectural design and decor are important.  We can give you home builder information to allow you to see how your real estate property investment should fair not only in the short term but in the future as well.
