There are many different reasons for an existing homeowner to move to a newly built home.  They want to live in a specific part of the Las Vegas Valley or a master planned community with lots of amenities.  Some want to enjoy a country club lifestyle or downsize after their children have left the nest. Others may just want a “turn key” home built to their specifications or they may wish to upsize to a larger home for their growing family.

Now is a good time to buy a newly built home while home prices are within financial reach.  The Nevada Builder Trade In Program operated by the Smith Team is here to help homeowners purchase a brand new home on contingency from a builder and the Smith Team will sell their current home. 

The Nevada Builder Trade In Program was started in 2014 by me and my twin brother Robert, and four years later we have happily helped hundreds of residents of Las Vegas move to a newly built home.  When we have a new client that wants to sell a home in order to buy a newly built home, we sit down and explain the concept. This may seem confusing at the beginning, as there are so many unknowns and questions.  The biggest question is how you can buy a new home on contingency when you have no idea what is the current market value of your existing home, as well as the timing of the sale.

The existing home usually sells in 30 -60 days through the program.  We understand the Las Vegas real estate thoroughly due to our nearly 30 years of experience – we know what buyers are looking for in a home and price your home to sell according to the comparable prices for your home and neighborhood.

The program now services 50 neighborhoods from Beazer Homes, Century Communities, Pulte Homes, Woodside Homes and Sun City in Mesquite by Del Webb.  Plus, some neighborhoods will sell standing inventory on contingency as well as homes in various phases of construction.

When you choose the Nevada Builder Trade In Program, the Smith Team will list, market and sell the home at a reduced commission while offering the buyers’ agent the standard 3 percent commission.
