Austin New Home Builders

Give me a call and let’s get you a great deal on a new home. Do you have a home to sell? Ask me about my MOVE UP LISTING DISCOUNT   $$$$$$ Save Thousands Selling Your Home $$$

Austin has grown so much in recent years that it is spreading rapidly to suburban areas. The lines are blurred where one city starts and another one ends. Major roadways make it easy to commute and many major employers are locating to the suburbs.  There are still a few pockets of new homes available in Austin proper and a little more room for more new communities bordering Cedar Park. The largest growth of new home communities NW of Austin is in Leander, NW Round Rock, Liberty Hill and Georgetown with plenty of room for growth. New home communities are plentiful there and the commute to N Austin jobs is very manageable via the 183 Toll and SH 45. NE Austin is easily accessible from Pflugerville and East Round Rock communities via SH 130 and SH 45.

IMPORTANT: When buying a new construction home, you do not have to work directly with the builder. In fact, working with an independent Buyers Agent, like myself, ensures that your best interests are considered when negotiating the price, upgrades and incentives. On site agents are very helpful with regards to product knowledge, but they work specifically in that community. So if you aren’t sure which community, builder, location, etc is best for you, then having your own Agent – representing you – is always a good idea. And it doesn’t cost you a thing! Builders are happy to pay the buyer’s agent for bringing them a new customer. You will also have someone on your side during the lot selection, options and upgrades selection, construction process, managing inspections and making sure things are done right. I’m not looking out for the builder’s bottom line – I’m looking out for YOUR investment!

If you go visit new home communities, tell them you are working with an Agent and give them my name – Christina Legrand with RE/MAX 1. Don’t give away your negotiating power! Have a look, but don’t give personal details and call me to negotiate the best price, terms and conditions. 

There are many Austin New Home Builders in Leander, Liberty Hill, Georgetown, Round Rock and Pflugerville. Many builders are offering enticing incentives to buyers such as price reductions, closing cost assistance and free upgrades. Many will also cooperate with buyers who have to sell a home first in order to buy. Of course they aren’t just going to give these perks away, you have to negotiate it! That’s how an experienced Agent can help you get the best deal.

Contact Christina Legrand at RE/MAX 1 – I know what questions to ask to get you the most home for the money with terms that work for you. Call or email for more information about buying a new home in the NW Austin Metro area. (512) 966-6540
