If you are thinking about buying a new home, take a Realtor with you.
Most communities advertise to Brokers and pay a Realtor commission.
Buying individually does not equate to a comparable discount on your sales price.
The representatives at new communities represent the builder, and the contracts often favor the builder.
Several conditions apply pertaining to delivery of the home, voiding the contract, closing costs, water and sewer deferments etc.
Closing cost incentives are regularly offered however the buyer is often obligated to pay all transfer and recordation taxes, increasing final closing costs.
Home inspections are permitted and encouraged.
A final walk-through is conducted prior to closing.
Properties are constructed to MD code in effect at the time.
Builder warranties for 1 year are provided for the entire home, and 2 year warranties apply for structural defects from the date of completion or possession, whichever comes first.
