I have hear dof such a thing as a "New Home" realtor and understand that they can help you with finding the right new home community and getting a good deal. But I haven't been able to find one!

I understand that you can't just post the names of realtors but can anyone tell me how to find such a creature?

Looking to move the family out to the Front Range by the end of the year and would love some help getting started. Thanks.

Has anyone used a new home realtor? Was it a good experience? Did it help?

Default I used one and it was perfect

We found one by grinding away on the internet for a while. She proved to be absolutely priceless. Showed us data on who was a good builder and who was a not so good builder. Stayed with every step of the way, from breaking ground to settlement and well beyond. Almost a year's worth of effort on her part. She cost us nothing more. These folks know all the new homes in the area, know the builders, and work for you.

I'll PM you with her info.

Good luck.

Choose your Realtor carefuly. Some Realtors have extensive new home construction training. Others have training in new construction marketing. Go for knowledge and experience.

When interivewing Realtors in the area, ask how many of their last 10 sales were new homes. Ask if they would recommend a home inspection prior to closing (say thank you very much and end the conversation with anyone who says a home inspection is a waste of time)

Realtors who know new construction should be able to show you the energy saving features in a new home. They should be able to talk about builder reputations, and their past experiences dealing with the on site folks (who are not licensed) and the construction supervisior. Many times we know how to go up the chain and get something done, and other times we know when to call the county.
