Rebate Buying Plan


Buying a brand new home from a builder is yet another option available during the home-buying process. If you decide to go with new construction, Bolton Realtor Group can save you THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS with our rebate buying plan.  We will be a powerful advocate in your corner as you negotiate upgrades, a move-in date and other terms with the home builder.  Below are some basic pointers to prepare you for the journey ahead.

The builder representative and Bolton Realtor Group

A builder representative’s ultimate goal is to sell you a home. His or her role is to provide a wide range of information to help you in your decision-making, from building restrictions, roads and easements to inspections, warranties, rebates and upgrades. Our knowledge in new-home construction will help you wade through all the data and point out the downsides and upsides of each line item. We will  look out for your interests in reviewing the builder’s contract, which often contains more legal jargon than consumer-friendly language.

It’s all about timing

Market conditions greatly dictate a builder’s incentive to make a deal you cannot refuse. When a builder has inventory on his hands, his carrying costs start adding up. When this happens, a builder might be more amenable to strike a favorable deal, whether it’s throwing in upgrades or taking a bit off the asking price. We can help you know when market conditions are right for these benefits. Also, watch for builder close-out sales. Builders promote these special events when a new subdivision is near completion but empty inventory still remains.

A word about paying up

While there are always exceptions, most builders require a deposit when a purchase agreement is signed. They also require that the buyer pay for any upgrades prior to closing. If you back out prior to closing, unless the agreement states otherwise, you will lose that money. We make sure you understand every detail in the builder’s contract before signing it.
