Builder Incentives Are Back

Fall is here as the leaves and the temperatures begin to drop we find that these aren’t the only things falling and rather BUILDER INCENTIVES ARE BACK!

Builders are substantially dropping prices of market ready homes and introducing new incentives to sell their inventory homes.

With interest rates projected to rise even higher (they’ve already reached 5%) NOW IS THE BEST TIME TO BUY!

Here are some of the incentives builders are promoting right now …

Fischer Homes

Fischer Homes is advertising a 72 Hour FLASH SALE for this weekend. It will end Monday at 6pm.

Fischer is building all over Central Ohio. One of their homes in Canal Winchester is listed for only $199,990. Their most expensive market home in Dublin is priced at $969,990.

They are offering discounts of up to $100,000 on quick move-in homes. These savings are off the new build price, not the list price.

Epcon Communities

Epcon is finishing out some of their 2018 developments including The Courtyards at Muirfield Ridge (Dublin, starting in the upper $300’s) and The Courtyards at Price Farms (Powell, around $500,000) with $15,000 client option discounts.

Epcon has already begun to announce it’s upcoming 2019 developments including Northwest Columbus. Their target buyer is largely the 55 and over segment many of whom head south for the winter. As such they are fairly motivated to move their existing inventory.

Take advantage of this opportunity and visit one of their weekend events, like the Fall Festival at Muirfield Ridge. Don’t forget to tell them I sent you and that you are working with me.

M/I Homes

M/I has a whole list of quick move-in homes on their website. For instance, in the Rivieria Development in Dublin we’re seeing price drops of up to $50,000.

Some of these homes are already finished, while others are only partially done with quick move-in dates allowing you to take possession of some of these homes before the holidays!

Pulte Homes

Pulte has quick move-in homes available, too and their discounts while their discounts aren’t as aggressive as some of their competitors they also build a quality product and offer a great selection!

An almost completed $491,000 home in Tarlton Meadows (Hilliard) is advertised with a meager $2,140 discount, however, Pulte offers up to $10,000 in free options in many communities. Builders did not give any free upgrades this spring when the market was buzzing, and we strongly encourage you to take advantage of them while they last!

Why You Should Call Me First

There are many benefits of working with an experienced agent when you look at new construction homes I can:

  • Help you negotiate free upgrades the builder won’t offer walk-in buyers.
  • Often we are aware of specials that are not publicly advertised.
  • Assist you in securing better deals on inventory homes.
  • If you decide to build new, I can help you select the options that provide the most value for resale (and those you could save some money on by waiting and having a third party do them for you post closing).
  • There’s no cost to you. The builder pays the Realtor commissions out of their marketing budget and will not discount the home by this amount if you elect not to work with a Realtor.

Call or text me at (614) 332-6984, before you talk to a builder!
