“The thought of buying and selling a home at the same time was a little scary at first because you think that it’s going to be a hard long and stressful process” said Brian McGowen. Mr. McGowen and his wife Nida went on to say “This was absolutely not the case while working with Robin and Robert through the Nevada Builder Trade-In Program.”
The McGowen’s bought a newly built home on contingency from Century Communities’ Sage Canyon in August. At that time they learned about the Nevada Builder Trade-In Program from the sales team at the Century Communities office. The couple phoned the Smith Team - Robert and I went to the McGowen home to explain how the program works. Their current home was in excellent shape and we discussed what the selling price should be. Robert and a photographer went to the house again to take photos of the home and arranged to put the home on the market.
The McGowen’s home was listed on a weekend and by Monday they had an offer – this home was sold in four days! Plus they sold the home for more than they had expected.
Brian and Nida McGowen are among several hundred Nevadans that have successfully participated in the Nevada Builder Trade-In Program since its introduction in 2014. We have had a 97 percent success rate in selling hundreds of homes at the projected price and within the designated time frame.
Our approach is strategic and straight forward. We price your home at a competitive price based on the current seller’s market in the Las Vegas housing market. We also offer advice how to prep your current home to get the highest sales price in the amount of time we have agreed upon – then we list and sell the home while you’re buying a brand-new home on contingency from one of the developers we have as builder partners.
If the homeowner qualifies financially and decides to sell their current residence and purchase a brand new home in a builder-partner neighborhood – we at the Smith Team will list, market and sell the clients current house at a reduced commission while offering the buyer’s agent the standard 3 percent commission. We also will help arrange for moving services or help locate a temporary rental if needed between the sale of your current home and the completion of the brand new home!
Our builder partners in the Las Vegas Valley offer over 50 neighborhoods by Beazer Homes, CalAtlantic Homes, Century Communities, Pulte Homes and Woodside Homes. In Mesquite our partner is Sun City Mesquite by Del Webb. Recently we expanded the program to Reno. We also work with other builders other than our builder partners that are sitting with standing inventory and we offer similar benefits as the Nevada Builder Trade-In Program.
Keep in mind that whether you are interested in buying a home or listing a home, a Realtor should represent you– this person is working for your benefit and will help you navigate through the buying or selling process. I have thirteen years in New Home Sales and fifteen years in General Real Estate sales!
Thanks and make it a terrific day…………Robin
