Help! Need Agents, Buyers Who've Bid in Pulte Homes Online New Homes imageBid Process

by San Jose REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe

Who do you know who knows an agent or buyer who's participated in Pulte Homes online bidding process for buying one of their new homes?

I'm doing research for a dear client and this "online bid process" for buying a new-built, or new-to-be-built, home is new to me and my client.

The Pulte Homes rep at the Onyx project in San Jose, Calif. said they've been doing the online bid process for about 5 months. She said (of course), all of the homes sell above their asking price-but that none in this development have closed yet so there is no sold price data to refer to. They don't post to MLS either.

Do all the bids show up to all bidders or is it blind? E.g. you only know your own bid. Do buyers find the process easy...fair...preferable to standard practice?

I welcome anyone who's participated in Pulte Homes, or other home builders', online bid process.

Hi Michelle,
I will be interested to know what you learn about this.  I've never participated in an online bid process.

Hi Carol,

I've bid on eBay, but not on houses, and not thru their system. Will update what I learn.

I would like to know if you found anything out about the bids? How much over are people bidding? I am interested in putting in a bid on a pulse home but not sure of how much over to bid?

Sorry can't wait for the blog. Are people bidding tens of thousands more or several thousand more?

Hi,

From what my colleague shared, they bid more than $25,000 over and did not win the bid.
