Now is the Best Time to Purchase a New Construction Home!

There are some great new construction opportunities right now, and your friends at One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Pros want to make your decision to purchase a new construction home even easier with our exclusive 2% rebate program. Yes, you read it right, a 2% rebate on a new construction home! This rebate will cover a large part, if not all, of your closing costs, thus saving you tons of money on your new home purchase.

If you already own a home and are thinking of selling so you can purchase a new construction home, we can help you with that as well.

For example, a booming job market or dropping interest rates can attract more buyers and create a favorable environment for sellers.

Ultimately, partnering with a knowledgeable real estate professional such as the Tampa seller agents/Orlando seller agents/South Florida seller agents and buyer’s agents at One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Pros who have a deep understanding of local market conditions can help you navigate the complexities of timing and ensure your home sale is a success.

2% Rebate on New Home Builds in Tampa Bay

One Percent Guys Tampa Bay just became the 2% Rebate Guys on New Home Builds in Tampa Bay!

How can this help you? 

Well, for starters, this rebate allows for the builders’ incentives to either be used to buy down the rate of the home loan or be applied toward upgrades since a large part of the closing costs will be covered by our 2% rebate.

Builders offer anywhere from 10K to 30K in incentives to the buyer.

We will be giving the buyer 2% of the purchase price at closing, thus making the total incentives greater than the builder’s incentives alone.

Example

For example, if you purchase a new construction home priced at $550,000.00 with 20K from the builder in incentives, you can buy down the rate, ending up with a much lower than market rate. Thus, you will pay much less over the life of the loan and still have $11K of your closing costs covered by our 2% rebate. 

This new rebate program only applies to new construction homes.

If you are thinking of purchasing a newly built home from a builder, let One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Pros represent you. It costs you nothing AND puts extra money back in your pocket!

Tampa seller agents/Orlando seller agents/South Florida seller agents

Researching current local market trends and dynamics is vital in making an informed decision about the ideal timing to list your home. The Tampa seller agents/Orlando seller agents/South Florida seller agents at One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Pros can provide valuable insights into buyer demand, inventory levels, and pricing trends that may influence the best time to sell in your area.

We are continuing or series of articles discussing different times of the year to sell your home. Our previous article covered the fall months. Today, we will look at some advantages to putting your home up for sale in the winter.

Winter: The Season of Opportunity and Niche Markets

While winter is typically considered a slower season for real estate, it presents unique opportunities for sellers who are willing to take advantage of niche markets and specific buyer motivations.

Winter listings can target motivated buyers, such as holiday move-up buyers or corporate relocations. Some individuals may be relocating due to professional demands, while others use the holiday break to finalize their home purchase. By tapping into these niche markets, you may find buyers who are willing to act swiftly and may be less concerned about negotiating a lower price.

Furthermore, lower inventory during winter means less competition for sellers. With fewer homes on the market, your property could capture the attention of serious buyers who are specifically searching during this time, potentially resulting in a higher sale price.

Our next article will cover advantages of listing your home during the spring months.

Pay Attention to This When Making and Offer on a Home

We are concluding our series of articles discussing some aspects you should pay attention to when making an offer on a home. Let’s take a look:

Review the Contract Carefully Before Signing

When making an offer on a home, it is crucial to review the contract carefully before signing. Failure to review the contract carefully may lead to hidden surprises, misunderstandings, or even legal disputes. The Orlando seller agents/Tampa Seller agents/South Florida seller agents and buyers agents at One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Pros will go over all contracts and paperwork with you before you sign.

Take Note of Contingencies and Deadlines

A contract typically includes contingencies and deadlines that can have significant consequences if not fulfilled. These may include an inspection contingency, mortgage contingency, or closing date contingency. Be sure to review these contingencies and deadlines thoroughly, understand them, and ensure that they are satisfactory before signing the contract. The Tampa seller agents/Orlando Seller agents/South Florida seller agents and buyers agents at One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Pros can explain any contingencies and deadlines included in the contract.

Have a Backup Plan in Case Financing Falls Through

Even with pre-approval for a mortgage, financing may still fall through before the closing of the sale. It’s important to have a backup plan in case this happens. For example, you could explore other financing options or work with the seller on a lease-to-own agreement. A backup plan can give you peace of mind and prevent delays or even the loss of your dream home. Our Tampa seller agents/Orlando Seller agents/South Florida seller agents and buyers agents can help you explore the various financial options available to you.

Mistakes to Avoid When Making an Offer on a Home

While it may sound easy, making an offer on a home is a very detailed and sophisticated process. Do the right things when making an offer and you can put yourself on the path to homeownership. Step the wrong way and you could lose a potential dream home. The Tampa seller agents/South Florida seller agents/Orlando seller agents and buyers agents at One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Pros have extensive experience with helping buyers make offers and advising sellers what offers to take and which ones to turn down. Our next series of articles will cover some mistakes to avoid when making an offer on a home.

Not Getting Pre-Approved

The first thing you should do when entering the market for a new home is get pre-approved for a loan. This not only helps you know your maximum price range, but a loan pre-approval letter is attractive to sellers. Not getting pre-approved for a loan may result in you making an offer on a home you will not be approved to purchase. You also could have your offer rejected in favor of someone who does have a pre-approval letter.

Going it Alone

Making an offer on a home without the guidance and advice of a real estate agent can be risky. Real estate agents have the knowledge and experience to help you negotiate an offer and outline contingencies that meet your goals and objectives.
