Navigating the New Home Construction Buying Process: A Guide for Buyers Without a Real Estate Agent

Forging the Path to a New Construction Home without a Realtor

For over 50 years, Maronda Homes has been committed to crafting quality homes and helping families achieve their dream of homeownership. If you’re considering purchasing a new construction home without the assistance of a real estate agent, you’re not alone. 

Many homebuyers embark on this journey independently, and with the correct information and guidance, the process can be smooth and rewarding. Here are some valuable tips to consider as you navigate the exciting world of new home construction buying:

1. Research

Knowledge is power. Take the time to research different communities, homesites, and floor plans of your interests. Consider the amenities, school districts, and nearby attractions to ensure the location aligns with your lifestyle. 

Our website is set up as its own search engine: you can easily search for an area or floor plan and explore locations in a map view. To take a deep dive into various floor plans, we offer 360 tours, online visualizers, and interactive floorplans.

2. Visit Model Homes

Model homes are a great way to experience the craftsmanship and design options available. Walk through different models to get a feel for the layout, finishes, and overall quality of construction. Pay attention to details like room sizes, storage options, and available upgrades.

With our Calendly integration, you can easily schedule private tours online, or if you have additional questions, you can contact a member of our online concierge team.

3. Understand the Building Process

Familiarize yourself with the construction timeline and the stages of building a new home. We offer many online resources to help customers understand our unique build process and its benefits. Understanding the building timeline will help manage your expectations so you can plan accordingly.

Once you visit a model and choose a homesite and floorplan, your sales agent will guide you through the entire process, giving you updates and answering any questions that may arise. We also have an online portal called MyMaronda, where you can check for various milestone updates.

4. Ask Questions

Don’t hesitate to ask your sales rep questions about the construction process, warranties, and any other concerns you may have. We take pride in transparency and are happy to provide information to ensure you feel confident in your decision. Clarify any doubts about color selections, energy efficiency features, and future development plans in the community.

5. Secure Financing

Before beginning the homebuying journey, it’s essential to secure financing. Work with a reputable mortgage lender to get pre-approved for a loan. We recommend using our preferred lender, RMC Home Mortgage. A clear understanding of your budget will help streamline the process and enable you to make well-informed decisions.

6. Negotiate with Confidence

While builders may be less flexible on pricing than individual sellers, there’s still room for negotiation. Discuss potential upgrades, closing costs, or other incentives that may be available. 

With customer satisfaction at the top of our minds, special promotions or incentives typically apply when financing through our preferred lender, RMC Home Mortgage. Take advantage of our current incentives now.

7. Hire a Real Estate Attorney

Even if you’re not working with a traditional real estate agent, consider hiring a real estate attorney to review contracts and protect your interests. Legal advice can be invaluable in navigating the intricacies of home-buying agreements.

Buying a new construction home without a real estate agent is achievable and rewarding, especially with the support of a reputable builder like Maronda Homes. With many online resources, trusted sales reps, and an in-house mortgage lender, we are here to help guide you every step of the way.
