Looking for new construction homes for sale in Issaquah? The area has many new home communities; but, home buyers won't find massive new construction developments.
Instead, Issaquah often has small pockets of new home construction - commonly with only 20-50 lots available. In 2014, new home builders such as Toll Brothers, Polygon & Burnstead are building new homes in the neighborhoods of Pinecrest & View Ridge in the Issaquah Highlands, and the Bridges at Talus, part of the master planned Talus community.

Think you don't need a buyer's agent when purchasing a new home? Think again! Many buyers don't realize that the sales agents at new construction sites are there to represent the new home builder's best interests - NOT the buyer.
Of course, buying your new dream home is often very exciting, but the process is very serious. Unfortunately, when new home buyers work directly with the builder's agents, they're very often not fully informed - both with the details of the new community, but more importantly, with very critical contractual terms.
The fact is, that sales agents at Issaquah new construction sites are incredibly busy. The environment is hectic - new sales agents must field inquiries from possibly hundreds of prospective new home buyers every day. Thus, it's exceptionally rare for builder sales agents to take the time to thoroughly review contractual terms with buyers. Of course, an attentive on-site sales agent will make any buyer feel welcome & important - in doing so, they're providing good customer service! But remember... you're the "customer" - not the "client" - and when it comes to real estate buyer representation, negotiations, and contractual terms, there are important legal differences.
We get this question a lot; the short answer is typically "no" when it comes to negotiating new home prices. Of course, all negotiations depend on the present market dynamics. If the builder isn't selling homes at a good rate, they will be more inclined to negotiate on price, upgrades or closing costs. Generally speaking, if there are more buyers than new homes, there's little if any chance for negotiation on upgrades, price or contract terms - but, it certainly doesn't hurt to ask. Just be careful that another new buyer doesn't scoop-up the home at asking price while you're negotiating appliances or a few hundred dollars!
Many people believe that if they do not hire their own buyer's agent to assist with their new home purchase, that the builder will "discount" the purchase price. This simply isn't true.
The fact is, that most home builders consider real estate commissions a necessary expense when pricing & selling new construction homes. And in reality, most builders actually prefer buyers have their own agents because it gives the on-site agents time to welcome new customers & facilitate more sales.
