There's a lot more involved for me than just signing in most of my new home buyers to the new home developments.  With the majority of buyers, we look and make offers on resale homes while keeping the new home as a plan B.  Both the buyers that only want to buy new and ones that look at resale homes, I help them through the options process, refer them lenders/contractors/inspectors/etc, discuss with them the various loan options (fixed vs. ARM vs. interest-only ARM), and talk about any tax matters. 

Given that the market is so hot and since CalPac's new Cypress Village condos are selling well without providing a broker coop, they'll continue that practice until the market cools off at which time they'll bring the broker coop back (we saw this with iPac with Laguna Altura when those homes were first released).  Even with offering the broker coop, I've venture to guess that less than half of buyers bring an agent with them to register because they are not aware of the broker coop and the rules that they need to bring an agent with them on their first visit to the sales office.  I've had dozens of people over the years who have contacted me to register with them after they've already given their names to the builders but I tell them the builder won't allow for it as I didn't accompany them on their first visit to the sales office.

My question slightly off topic from RE greed. Do we know if IP is going to be building new community by the Highland pool/Altair area? Or some other builder? Highland is selling like crazy with view lots and internal both building faster than year ago. I am interested in new floor plan from IP in that area. Any insights into when and who could build there? Thanks

I've been wondering about this also... Looks like it's graded and ready to go. Maybe it will be a Highland extension? Here's the sitemap for it...

Thats a good guess since it is already close to Highland pool. The existing lots are building out faster with 3/4 crews working at the same time. I am thinking it might be officially announced later in the year or early 2022.

How about KB homes Elderberry extension? The lot seems to be bigger here to justify a highland community..

Just heard from sales at Lapis, they are not offering broker co-op for this community.
none for Sierra homes as well.

Hello!

I stumbled on this forum by accident researching the new stuff in Portola Springs. Would anybody perchance have a good contact for Cal Pacific? I've tried the number listed but without an extension I end up at the general voicemail T_T. Definitely not holding my breath for a callback on that voicemail.

You just need email or fax them with a picture like this.

Market too hot... no need for referral fees. :(

So if someone went to an agent and said, hey help me buy from CalPac in this brand new neighborhood, the agent would most likely tell them politely to screw off lol?

Sure most agents will do that but that's because they are short sighted.  I'll work with my clients if they want to buy at the CalPac communities even if I don't make any commission.  It's good karma and it's good for long term business with more repeat and referral business.  The real money is made with building a working relationship with clients, not on any single individual transaction. ;)
