New Homes in Ponte Vedra FL - FAQ


Wondering why you should use a Ponte Vedra Real Estate agent to help you purchase a new home?  Many people think that there is no reason to use an agent when they purchase a new home in Ponte Vedra FL from a builder.  However, there are many good reasons to use a good, professional real estate agent.  There are many, many time-consuming details involved in purchasing a new home.  We can help you save time and money when purchasing a new home from a builder, whether it is being built "from dirt" or is a Ponte Vedra builder spec home.

I can just go to the builder myself and buy.  Why shouldn't I?


Yes, you can go to the builder yourself.  But why wouldn't you want an advocate working on your behalf to help you save time and money?  We have found that the more experienced buyers prefer seeking out an agent to help them.  They've been through it all before and know they would rather have someone else do the leg work.  

We see it all of the time.  Buyers drive around to builders who are so busy they can't even answer basic questions for buyers.  This is not because the reps do not care.  This is because they are overwhelmed with other buyers doing the same thing.  We have built relationships with many new home reps in the area.  We have many of the floor plans and pricing details on file and can help you cut to the chase.  We can help you focus on the communities, builders and floor plans that meet your needs.  All without you using any gas money to drive around.  And when you get ready to look, we can use our gas!  :-)

How much does it cost for us to represent you when you buy new homes in Ponte Vedra FL?


Nothing!  The builder pays us to help you save time, money, stress and aggravation!

Why do I need a Ponte Vedra real estate agent to buy and look at new homes Ponte Vedra FL?


The representative at the Ponte Vedra new home builder is representing the builder....not you.  Their job is to make sure 

they do their best to sell the home to you at as high of a price as possible, netting the builder as much money as possible.  We love the Jacksonville new home builder site agents too!  But they are not there to represent you.  You can hire us to represent you in the purchase of new homes in Ponte Vedra FL AT NO COST TO YOU!  The builder pays us a commission when we help you close on the transaction.  It costs you nothing, but we are a tremendous resource and help to you.  Remember, we look after YOU, not the builder and it's FREE!!!

I'm a good negotiator, why would I need a Ponte Vedra real estate agent to buy a new home?


The simple fact is we do this every day.  We know the different builders and how they work.  No matter how good your negotiation skills, it is rare for a home buyer not to be somewhat emotional when they are negotiating a deal for their personal home.  There is no room for emotion when you are trying to get the best house at the best price.  We provide a buffer to you in the negotiations and throughout the transactions. 

I will pay more for the Ponte Vedra new home if I use an agent.  Can't I can negotiate for less if I'm not using one?


This is a misconception.  You will not pay more for your home if you are using a Ponte Vedra real estate agent.  The builders are used to paying Ponte Vedra real estate agents to sell their homes.  The price does not go down if you are not using an agent.  In addition, since we are so active with new homes in Ponte Vedra FL we often know of special incentives and what, based on history, a builder is likely to discount  the home through negotiations.

I'm familiar with the areas, why shouldn't I just drive around and look at new homes Ponte Vedra FL?

Even if you are familiar with the area of Ponte Vedra FL new homes that you are looking in, things can get really confusing.  With an abundance of floor plans, options, lot choices, large neighborhoods with many smaller neighborhoods it can be very confusing.  Often buyers may be willing to put in an offer on a home, not knowing that they can get a better deal on a similar home with a different builder close by.  We make it our job to keep up to date on builder inventory, prices, incentives and plans.


If you are considering making a move to a new home in Ponte Vedra, let us know.  We can work with you to help you get what you are looking for with minimal time and aggravation.  We can also help you negotiate the best deal possible.
