Buyers Looking to Build a New Home

New Construction Builder Guaranteed Sale Program

Looking to buy a new home? Are you ready to build a new home, but you don’t qualify to start construction until your existing home is sold?


Now you can get started immediately. We will list your home for sale. If not sold by the time you close on the new home, we will buy your existing home. If you have to sell your home first, this program allows you to start sooner so you can take advantage of today’s interest rates and construction costs.

Contact Linton Hall, Realtors® to determine if your home qualifies for our unique Builder Guaranteed Sale Program. Our experienced guaranteed sale team will evaluate your property and present you with an offer to purchase your home. If you accept the guaranteed offer, you can move forward with contracting a new construction home as a non-contingent buyer.

In almost all cases, builders in Northern Virginia prefer to deal with non-contingent buyers.  A non-contingent buyer is a buyer that already has his/her home under a purchase agreement with a third party buyer. Therefore, you need to be a non-contingent buyer in preparation for dealing with your builder and presenting an actual offer to build. This is where we come in!  We will actually remove the contingency by making a written offer to purchase your home in the unlikely event it fails to sell before your new construction home is delivered.

The offer on your new construction home will be made subject to your receipt and acceptance of our New Construction Builder Guaranteed Sale Program offer on your present home.  Everything is upfront and in writing. You are not obligated, nor committed to accept our guaranteed price until you have worked out favorable terms and details with your builder and the purchase of your new construction.

Generally speaking, simultaneously with the start of the actual new construction build (approximately at the time of installation of your new home’s concrete foundation), your existing home will be marketed for sale through our brokerage company to prospective buyers.  This will provide ample time for you to sell to a third party buyer and achieve a higher price above our guaranteed sale price.

If your home sells within the established marketing period to a third party buyer at a price higher than our guaranteed sale price, you get to work with that offer rather than sell to us.  If your home has not sold within the designated marketing period, we will buy your home for the upfront predetermined guaranteed price so you can close on your new construction build.  Either way, you win!

If you want to move sooner than the 120- or 150-day marketing period allows, you may be interested in applying for interim financing from our preferred lender that specializes in bridge financing. By qualifying for interim financing, you can free up your equity to allow you to close sooner on your new home.  If you need money for your construction deposits, we offer equity advancements at very low interest rates and payments deferred until you actually sell your existing home.

You don’t have to miss the home you want because your present one won’t sell – use our Builder’s Guaranteed Sale Program.*

The Five Steps

Decide on the home you want to purchase.

Through your Linton Hall, Realtors® agent make an offer on the home contingent upon a satisfactory New Construction Builder Guaranteed Sale Agreement from Linton Hall, Realtors® on your present home.

Before the offer on the new construction home is considered and accepted by your builder, we will present you with a guaranteed sale proposal. After you accept the proposed guaranteed sale purchase and marketing offer, your home is marketed for a minimum of 90 days or until completion of your new construction build.

If your home does not sell during the marketing period, we will actually purchase it for the agreed price and you close on your new home.
