Buying a New Home | Sarasota FL | David Barr Realtor
You should be prepared to bring a couple of things with you on your trip.
First off, you should bring a copy of the contract for the sale of your home up north. The builder would like it to be non-contingent, meaning that inspections have been completed and agreed to, and the buyer for your home has had their final mortgage approval.
If you are buying a quick move in home, you may have to make a 2nd deposit before closing.
It's key to know how the builder of your next home structures the down payment(s), especially if you are waiting for cash out of your current home to purchase your new home.
There's more to buying a new home than many people think. Remember, the builder's advertised price on a new home is the same when you're working with your own Realtor. Contact me with questions or to schedule a tour.
