YES! It is possible right now!
Recently I represented some first time Buyers. We located a property and wrote an offer. Simple right? Well, just a minute there! Let's look at this simple offer. It is a 'New' never been lived in condo. This qualifies for the current offer from Utah Housing of $6000. Being first time buyers THEY qualify for the $8000 tax credit. I negotiated $5200 to be paid for in the Buyers closing costs from the Builder as well as a $1200 fridge,$640 in pre-paid HOA fees, AND,installed a gate for $450. Not to mention all the upgrades that were already in place, AND they paid less than the asking price and it appraised for $4000 more than they paid! So Add it all together thats over $20,000.
Can this secenario be repeated you ask? Oh YEAH! There are many many many, properties that really need to be sold so the builder/developer can get them off the books and begin the next project.These are great homes and great builders willing to give HUGE discounts for good clean well qualified buyers working with Buyers Representatives. You DO NOT have to sacrifice representation or Agency to get a GREAT DEAL and You will probably even get a BETTER deal using your own Agent. Let them do their job and you will reap the benifits. Dont wait too long though these conditions WILL NOT last. This really is a wonderful opportunity. Call or email me for more information or if you have a referral or YOU want to take advantage of this market.
