Hi Guys,
Does anyone have any recent experience with Grand Homes in Regency Park, Plano? How open are they in negotiating price in this community (what percent of the house value will they consider negotiating up to?) How accurate are they in giving the closing dates and sticking to it?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Regency Park, be aware that it is in Frisco ISD. The community sits across from a apartment complex (seems high end at the moment but down the road, who knows)

search the forums for Grand Homes. I've read enough horror stories that I've eliminated any home built by Grand from my home search.

My sister just purchased a Grand Home, with that said she loves it and the home inspector did not find a whole lot of problems. I am honestly shocked on how well things went with this builder after reading reviews and knowing others who have purchased

right now they are VERY open with price negotiating!! my sister offered 20,000 less.

My sister chose not too build and moved in a spec.(move in ready home) so everything worked out perfect for her.

I would recommened finding a Buyers Agent to represent you if you purchase a new home.

my sister and I both used an agent we found on craigslist and we bot got cash rebates back, yes the agent gave us half of the money she earned from the builder. Good Luck!!

Guys,

I have recently signed up for a house in Regency park, before signing i was worried about
1. being sorrounded by retail, apt complexes - after talking to few people (realtors included)
everyone agrees that there is no land left in west plano to build the houses thats one plus,
it is close to major offices (emplyment), shopping & freeways thats a plus so all these factors
will make the land value go up even if the community sorrounded by retail & apt's.
2. Reputation of Grand Homes - to be honest i have shopped around lot of new home builders
and grand was the one who has some nice open floor plans i was looking for, they are open for
negotiations i could bargain atleast 50k less than the list price. am not sure about grand honering
there warranties its too early for me to comment, i have checked couple of people in that
community and they don't have any issues so far.

I had a contract in Regency Park. They informed me the closing date 1 month before their expecting closing date, but they still not finish fixing everything. So, I guess the closing date is around 1 week of their expecting closing date.
For the negotiating price, it depend on what kind of house you want to build. You can set 10% less as your target price.

Default Regency Park, Plano query

What is the popular floor plan in Regency Park?

Does anyone purchased home recently there and what is the price offered?

Also, what was the price last year for the same from people who are already living there right now?

Any help on this really helpful. I am planning to explore home at Regency Park, Plano and there are only 3 homes left it seems.

Thx
Bharat

Bharat,

It's in the close out phase. They have only 4 left, 3 specs plus the model. The one house that is completed on Foothill backs to Ohio, has power lines behind it and doesn't have any upgrades. They aren't budging much from that price, only 20K. They claim that they have had several full price offers on it without making any modifications to the home. I think it's hugely overpriced.

The location is great, that's about it. Have you looked at Deerfield North? New construction but the price is slightly higher but you get so much more. It's also in Frisco ISD.

Thanks Naima for the message and it is really helpful information. Yep, I know Deerfield North and it is going to be bit high for me from price perspective. Well, I did talk to Regency Park and you are very correct they have 20K max. I wish I get inside price from existing people who are living there already and can get some negotiated price range for me to start talking to them again.

Thx
Bharat
