Yes you can but you need to pay attention to the price. Most immediate delivery homes are loaded to the max. Builders know if you see all the bells and whistles likely you are going to want them. The same house priced to build with WHAT you need in it can be 50K less. Most builders in today’s Northern Virginia market are offering a healthy package of incentives for a buyer.
This weekend touring new home sites in Woodbridge VA with my clients we found builders offering finished basements, “gourmet” kitchens, hardwood flooring, tile and other incentives built into the base price of the home. For most buyers the base package along with a few of the other design options being offered are more than enough to have a wonderful new home.
Before you head out to buy a new home talk to an agent who has experience in working with Northern Virginia builders. Find out what you need to know before you walk in the model home. It could save you thousands of dollars and a lot of surprises along the way.
