Building a New Construction Home in Plainfield

New Construction Home Builders in Plainfield

With inventory still at record lows many Home buyers are now starting to build instead of purchasing existing homes. We have a list of all the local area builders and what you need to know!

Remember the person or persons in the builders models are working for the builder not you. You CAN use a Realtor when building new construction, commission is paid for by the builder and is already figured into their price. You will not get a better deal if you do not use a Realtor they will not deduct the price of commission and give you an incentive. In fact we are usually able to negotiate a better deal for you than you would get if you had not used a Realtor. Everything is negotiable and you need someone on your side. We have personally built with some of these builders and we have worked with almost all of these local builders we are very familiar with how each one works.

It is very easy to get caught up in the beautiful model homes and think that is what your home is going to look like, unfortunately that is not the case, most of the model homes have upwards of 75-100K in what builders call “upgrades” we know this because we ask when we go into preview the models. Many of these upgrades are cosmetic but some are structural and totally change the look and feel of the home. The Base price of a home is a starting point and we can help you determine what is more cost effective to do with the builder based on their prices or on your own after you close.

Here is who are building New Homes in Plainfield, South Plainfield and Joliet. If you would like more information about any of these builders please contact us and let us know we would be happy to schedule and appointment to check out the model and floor plans.
