Texas Real Estate Commission Information About Brokerage Services

This is the most comprehensive guide to finding a new construction home in Dallas / Fort Worth.  Home construction is booming because of the tremendous numbers of relocations and local upgrading of homes.

The three fastest growing areas are Collin County, Denton County and Rockwall County to the east.

When using the page, you can filter by County, City, School District or Price with the scroll bar on the left.  Find the neighborhoods with this filter that suits your location or price or school district and a neighborhood pages gives you a handy link is given to allow you to go to the builder site directly.   Plus, the address is given (something very hard to find on a lot of builder pages) to get you to the neighborhood!

Buyer a new construction home is stressful.  Starting with financing and approval, to finding the location and floor plan you want, is a process involving strong emotions.  It’s a home and what may be the biggest financial investment of your life.

I can guide you through the process:  financial approval, location, plan, builder, price, builder price promotions and upgrades, closeouts, progress inspections, final walk through inspections and closing.

And the best part, you pay nothing for this tremendous asset.  I am compensated by the builder.  If you think the builder will give you the commission that he pays me, you are probably wrong.   Builders generally budget marketing apart from direct construction prices and sales prices.  This is an overhead item they are expecting and most development salesmen have no access to this.

In fact, the best builders welcome Realtor clients because they know the Realtor will handle all the details and even be the buffer for the stress of construction.  In the sales process, I assist you in getting ALL the upgrades and discounts the builder can offer.

In the construction process, independent inspections are important.  Although the builder will tell you they have “independent” inspectors review your new home before your walk through, their independence is they usually work for a different company who does all their business with the builder.   I assist you with referring “new home” specializing inspectors who inspect for cosmetics instead of just mechanical.  Those mechanical inspections on pre-owned homes are important but cosmetics are often not important because you are buying the home “as-is.”
