What to Know Before Visiting Model Homes at Sterling Ranch

If you're eyeing a new build in Sterling Ranch and the model homes have caught your attention, you're making a great move. However, before you step into the sales office, there are a few key things to keep in mind.

Bring Your Agent for the Initial Visit

You might not know this, but having your real estate agent by your side during your first visit to the model homes is a crucial step in ensuring they can represent you and receive their commission from the builder. If you do not register with an agent when signing in, the builder will usually not allow you to be represented going forward. This isn't merely about formalities---it's about securing continued professional guidance and advocacy without added cost to you. As your agent, I can be on your side throughout the process in ways the builder is not.

Model Home Finishes and Features

Model homes are akin to the fashion runways of home design: they're decked out in top-tier finishes and often dressed up with upgrades---and sometimes even features---that the builder doesn't offer in the standard package. This is intended to showcase the builder's capabilities and wow potential buyers, but keep in mind that these upgrades will not align with what you would get with the base model. Sometimes the builder will even include custom finishes (such as built-ins or accent walls) that are not options if you were to build.

Unrepresented Floorplans

Now, if you have checked out the builder's website beforehand, you might fall in love with a floorplan that doesn't have a model home. As your agent, I can work with the sales office to potentially arrange a visit to in-progress homes using those exact floorplans when available.

Navigating the Process with a Real Estate Agent

As an experienced real estate professional specializing in the Sterling Ranch area, I'm here to help you understand what features are standard, what constitutes an upgrade, and how the model experience translates into your actual purchase. More importantly, I'll help you read between the lines of glossy finishes and strategically staged furniture to envision what your chosen floorplan will honestly feel and look like as your own.

Having assisted numerous clients through the journey of home buying and building in the Denver area, I have the insights and know-how to ensure you get the best value and that no detail is overlooked---from negotiating the terms of your purchase to advising on selections that could affect your home's resale value. Remember, this is all free to you because the builder pays the agent commission.
