NEW TRACT HOME BUILDERS AND DEVELOPMENTS:
Aside from death and taxes the only other sure thing in life is change. The whole Real Estate paradigm has changed in the last two years. Protecting Yourself and Your assets has become much more challenging than before. In the past people felt comfortable writing a check to a home builder for earnest money or a down payment; but now with builders posting tremendous losses You must protect Your down payment more than ever before. The stock of Eagle builders, one of Colorado’s largest builders, went from $22.00 a share down to less than $1.00; and Richmond American Homes lost 155.4 million in the last quarter alone. The state of Colorado Real Estate Commission publishes forms for the real estate agents that protect the buyers; but builders are exempt from the commission’s rules. The Builders’ lawyers have written their own contracts that protect the builders, not the buyers; You need to have a licensed real estate agent representing Your interest exclusively-the salesman for the builder represents only the builders’ interest. We can read the builder’s agreement, advise You on what You are signing and how to protect Your investment; since most home warranties last at least one year we need to be assured that the builder will still be in business!
We, at Mark English Real Estate, are also professional shoppers and will expose You to every opportunity possible. We will search the entire market to find You the best deal available. There are many alternatives besides new homes; there are also resale’s of nearly new homes and foreclosures and fully updated homes which tend to have very desirable close-in locations. As with any buying endeavor the larger the selection the better the odds of saving money and getting the very best choice. We will evaluate the prices in today’s depressed market and recommend a reasonable offer. We can see if the market prices are trending down or holding their own and thereby protect Your equity position. We can analyze the schools, the location, the subdivision amenities, and the ambiance of the neighborhood. You will have the peace of mind of knowing that You have examined all the possibilities and decided on the very best one for You at the lowest possible price.
We know how to negotiate the best incentive packages and where the highest rebate is. Many times the incentives are tied together with the title policy, the appraisal and the loan fees; we can analyze the entire offer and advise You whether it is really a deal or just bells and whistles. We know how to run the numbers so that You can make an informed decision.
Mark English Real Estate will represent You through the buying process and all of our services are ABSOLUTLY FREE TO YOU, the buyer. We are always paid by the seller.
