The new home route is a beast of it’s own kind and unfamiliar territory to most home-buyers, but the McCalla team is very experienced in working closely with developers to build the home of your dreams!
It is very important for you to understand that the agents at the sales offices of new construction communities are representing the seller/builder and they are not looking out for your best interest. It is their job to get more money for the seller! This is why it is super important that you bring your own Realtor with you every time you go to see the model homes, ask questions, and review paperwork.
Builders pay the Agent’s commission! Having your own realtor to protect your rights throughout the new home purchase process, is a service that is FREE to you and it does not increase the price of the home – in fact, a knowledgable realtor will be able to help you find ways to reduce your costs and even negotiate the contract to be favorable to your needs and circumstance.
When considering building a new home, it’s important to keep in mind that the time frame for the transaction gets extended; a resale transaction takes approximately 35 days from start to finish, whereas the time frame to build your own home can last as long as 3-8 months.
The Las Vegas and Henderson areas are growing rapidly due to new construction and therefore it is very likely you will have to be placed on a waiting list to build your new home. This passage of time, as well as the fact that prices on new builds will continue to increase consistently every few months, are very valid reasons to get on a waiting list sooner rather than later if you are thinking about going this route.
The prices you see advertised are often just for the home with standard features; There is an additional cost for the land, appliances, personal color choices, ext., and most newly built homes will come with HOA fees, master plan fees, or SID/LIDS (street/land improvement dues).
