Roy, did you have a bad experience?
"I am amazed that not a single RE agent talks about how builders get low prices home to market. "
- Please clarify this statement, if there's a question in there I'd be happy to give me 2 cents.
You have to take builders quality and construction on a case by case basis, not all builders are good builders no matter what the price of the home is or where it's located.
What do you consider an "exciting floor plan"?
- Taste and Quality can be subjective depending who you're talking to.
Real Estate agents only have detailed information about homes they list, they can get you more information about the homes if you ask them to and are not working with 10 different agents....
Rule of thumb, if you don't show any loyalty or look like your planning on buying with the agent which is showing you homes, don't expect that agent to go out of their way to get you more info...
