As we begin 2021, there are at least 10 Scottsdale new home communities in North Scottsdale ranging in price from $400K for a 2400SF home (you must own a lot already) up to $2M plus for a 4100SF single family home offered by one of the nations most reputable home builders.
Most of the new Scottsdale home communities are located in the zip codes of 85255,85262 and 85266 and they are in various phases of development.
Visiting New Home Communities
When you visit any Arizona new home community, it’s a very smart idea to go with your real estate broker–the reason is that in Arizona, your agent/broker must be with you on your first visit to any given community in order for them to represent you; and, more importantly, new home sales agents represent the builder only. When you sign a new home contract, you will be asked to sign a document stating that you understand that the new home sales agent represents the builders interests and not yours.
Unless you are working with a small mom and pop type builder, the price you’ll pay for the home will be the same whether you have your own agent or not–so, it only makes sense to have your own professional representation. A good agent can add value to your new home purchase experience in many ways such as:
- Negotiate a better price (largely dependent upon current market conditions)
- Negotiate more favorable terms
- Help pick the best lot (important for resale)
- Review the builder contract and point out important terms
- Assist with financing by connecting you to outside lenders. Most builders offer incentives if you use their preferred lender, but you may find a better deal elsewhere
- Arrange third party inspections
- Offer advice at the design center appointment
- Attend all important meetings
- Attend walkthrough appointments
