Home Buyers In Sugar Land's Telfair Camp Out To Buy Homes

Share Article

Sugar Land's newest master planned community, Telfair, is a huge hit among home buyers, but at a cost. Unfortunately, many of these buyers unnecessarily paid a significant price in convenience. Buying from the builder without using a Real Estate Agent forced many to spend the night in order to get the lot and home they wanted.

Before official ground breaking could begin, some home buyers in the newest Sugar Land community, Telfair, camped out in their cars to buy homes just one weekend following an introductory event for the area's top Real Estate Agents. Telfair developer, Newland Communities, hosted the event.

Although Telfair is planned to be a 6 year project, with over 2,000 homes, many home buyers felt the need to spend the night to be the first in line to buy the exact home and lot they wanted. An effort judged unnecessary according to Don Burns, a leading local Real Estate Agent.

"It would have been far easier to have a Realtor represent them on the transaction," according to Don Burns. "The Builder would have been contacted, the lot location, plats and plans faxed or e-mailed, and the offers written and negotiated. Sounds better than sleeping in a car in June in 90 degree weather to me!"

Home buyers had their sights set on the pick of the bunch as Telfair held their pre-grand opening event. With over 700 home sites available in this first section spread across seven neighborhoods, there seems to be plenty to choose from, however.

"Home buyers need not jump into buying a home before they consult a professional Realtor," claims Don Burns. "And spending the night in your car or in line just before you finalize a decision as big as buying a home probably does not put you in the best mind set for such a transaction."

Anxious to be one of the first home owners in Telfair in Sugar Land, rather than spend the night in 90 degree weather, some hopeful would be buyers entered their names in Builder lotteries.

One such hopeful, a client of Don Burns, was chosen to buy a Trendmaker Home from the hundreds that put their name in the hat. In contrast to spending the night, this lottery winner had the entire transaction handled by Don Burns and his team.

1. The names placed on Trendmaker's lottery list.

2. Assistance in the floor plan and lot selection once they were chosen.

3. Within 2 days of the lottery, their home was listed in MLS and was on the Internet including several pictures and virtual tours.

4. One more day and color flyers were in the home and on the sign in the yard.

5. On the 5th day after winning the lottery, Don Burns accompanied their client to represent them in finalizing their contract with Trendmaker.

"All of our clients receive the same service, and it does not cost the buyer, our client, any additional money either," Said Don Burns. "In fact, not being represented by a Real Estate Agent when you purchase a new home in Telfair might cost you more money in the long run."
