When you decide to go new-home shopping in the Las Vegas Valley you can look at homes in all areas north, south, east and west – newly built homes are popping up everywhere.
Michelle Walter found her dream home in Henderson by CalAtlantic however she decided to look for a home closer to work in the southwest part of the valley. As luck would have it the builder was constructing the same model in a southwestern valley neighborhood. However to buy this home she had to sell her existing town home and she wasn’t sure how to proceed.
Walter said “After telling the builder’s sales agent that we would need to sell my town home before buying the new home the sales agent encouraged me to contact the Nevada Builder Trade In Program that helps people buy a home on contingency.” After learning about the program she contacted the Smith Team at Keller Williams Las Vegas about the program that is operated by Robert and me.
We met with Michelle and explained the program and she decided to buy and sell through the Nevada Builder Trade In Program and we listed and marketed her town home – it sold very quickly with a bidding war – just three days after it was listed. There were 17 offers on the first day and the town home sold for $20,000 above the listing price making Michelle quite happy.
Walter was able to select several additional options on her new home since the home was in the very beginning of being construction. The Smith Team also helped her negotiate a lease-back on her town home for several months until she was able to move-in to her new home.
The home sellers that use the Nevada Builder Trade In Program pay a 4 percent commission on the sale of their current home, and then the program makes 3 percent representing the seller-turned buyer when it is time to purchase the new home – that is paid by the seller or builder – not the buyer.
We work with builders Pulte Homes, Woodside Homes, Beazer Homes and Century Communities as well as other builders in over 50 neighborhoods in the Las Vegas Valley. This past year the program processed 218 transactions with a 98 percent closing rate. Almost all homes sell within 30 days.
Bottom Line- homeowners that are interested in the program please contact the Smith Team at 702-460-5080 or go to www.ISellLasVegas.com.
