Looking for a new home? Now may be the best time to purchase from a builder!

Would you like a new home for the holidays? Now may be the best time to take advantage of Builder end of year specials!

 With the cooler weather and holiday’s right around the corner, the last thing on your mind is searching for a new home.  Typically home sales, new and resale, slow down in the fourth quarter because families have more important things to worry about, like being first in line at the local at their favorite retailer Thanksgiving night to save $10 bucks on the latest Black Friday sale item! But future homeowners don’t even realize instead of saving a few greenbacks on the newest X-Box, they could be saving THOUSANDS of dollars on their new home.  That’s right, the best time to get a new home on a builder’s existing inventory is usually before the year ends!

Many new home builders, including companies like KB Home, MI Homes, Pulte, and Lennar Homes have already started their end of year deals on existing inventory.  Many of UP Realty’s clients have already taken advantage of these incredible savings and will be moving in before year’s end.  The savings, combined with low interest rates, will end up saving these families hundreds of dollars per month on their mortgage payment! That leaves room for more cash in the wallet for presents for the kiddos!

This is a great opportunity to take advantage of closing cost savings and tax advantages as well. Now, keep in mind, not every homebuilder in Austin will have these types of deals on their homes, but with the right REALTOR to help you negotiate a deal on existing new home inventory, you too could be one of the lucky ones to give your family the best present ever and celebrate the holidays in your brand new home!

The Up Realty Agents have been busy this fall helping many families negotiate their new home deals before the year ends. Many of our agents have worked for new home builders in the past and know what it takes to get the best pricing right now. They also know that typically when a builder offers such promotions and end of year savings, it comes at a price to the families waiting to purchase the following year in the form of price increases!

And you are probably wondering, why are builders being so generous and discounting these homes to ridiculous prices? Well, it’s simply because they want to make their yearly quota and get those existing homes off the books. They understand that after the school year starts, football seasons kicks off, and holidays consume our lives, that families just put their home search on the back burner. This leads to a slower fourth quarter and builders scrambling to make their quota, so what do they do? DISCOUNTS, DISCOUNTS, DISCOUNTS!!! Think of it as buying a new car at the model year end clearance, except when you drive a car off the lot, it depreciates in value. When you buy a new home at under market value, your gaining instant equity in most cases!

So whether you are looking for your next home in Austin, Round Rock, Pflugerville, Kyle, Buda, Leander, or anywhere in between, call your new home experts at UP Realty for more information about the best new home deals for the end of the year. Our agents have sold hundreds of new homes and have saved our clients thousands by negotiating the best deal for them.
