Over the past couple of days I've been receiving notices from Lakewood Ranch new home builders about how they will be conducting business.
The consensus seems to be that they will be open by appointment only. Now more than ever you need a Realtor who is a new home specialist.
In a typical seasonal market (December to mid April for us here in Lakewood Ranch) the number of buyers far exceeds the number of new home sales associates who can help you. I can't tell you the number of times I go into a new home sales center and see people waiting in line to be helped.
The demand for Lakewood Ranch real estate is going to continue, and I think we'll have so much pent up demand in the next 30 to 60 days, that doing business by appointment will severely restrict your ability to be able to work with a new home sales associate on your own. When you're working with your own Realtor, they know you are a highly qualified and interested buyer, and may prioritize you above others seeking an appointment.
Part of my service to you as your new home buyer's agent is to be your boots on the ground. I can use my drones to give you a unique birds eye view of any home site, provide model home photos, and take photos of any quick move-in homes you may be interested in.
Please contact me with questions.
