Most homebuilders welcome the opportunity ..., 15 Sept 2014 [cached]
Most homebuilders welcome the opportunity to partner with agents and are eager to help them and their clients, noted Brian Brunhofer, president of Deerfield-based Meritus Homes.
"For us, the key to making the relationship successful is spending time with agents at our communities, so they know our product, features and unique selling positions," he said. "Once they understand who we are and what we have to offer, there's a level of trust that makes many agents comfortable bringing multiple buyers to us. Brunhofer added that keeping the lines of communication open is also important, so that brokers have the latest information on a builder's pricing and inventory to share with clients.
When one of our prospects has a home to sell in an area where we know a particular broker has a vast knowledge of the market, we're always happy to make that referral," Brunhofer said.

The Short List: Brian Brunhofer on Ways to Develop a Good Relationship with Homebuilders

"People are tired of waiting around, whether buying a new home or downsizing, the buyers we're serving are ready to move on with their lives," said Brian Brunhofer, president of Deerfield-based Meritus Homes, which has sold five homes in northwest suburban Long Grove after opening a 20-home development there 90 days ago.
Meritus bought the site, as well as others it is relaunching in Naperville and St. Charles, after the housing bust wiped out prior developers.
"We're not getting close to 10, 15,000 permits anytime soon, but you see people are believing it's a good time to buy right now," Mr. Brunhofer said.
One such buyer is Brian Brunhofer, president of Deerfield-based Meritus Homes, which is relaunching residential projects in Long Grove, Naperville, and St. Charles after the housing bust wiped out prior developers. Mr. Brunhofer said he's signed contracts for five new homes in the first quarter.
Buying land at low prices allows developers to sell homes at lower prices. But real estate fundamentals still hold true in choosing where to build, he says.
"Location, schools, and people want to feel they're getting great value," Mr. Brunhofer says.
Brian Brunhofer, president of Deerfield-based Meritus Homes, which has one active development of single-family homes in northwest suburban Inverness, said traffic slowed around the holidays but has been "pretty decent" thanks to the relatively mild winter weather.
Meritus has sold 11 of 27 home sites in the development, which opened for sales in November 2010, Mr. Brunhofer said.
"There's demand out there if you're in the right location at the right price," he said.

Buyers are ready to make decisions and have financing in hand, but they're focused on locations closer to the city, said Brian Brunhofer, president of Deerfield-based Meritus Homes.
Meritus is developing homes in Inverness, St. Charles and Long Grove and buys existing homes in suburbs like Park Ridge, tearing down the structures to build new.
The firm expects to sell 35 homes this year and about the same number next year.
Mr. Brunhofer is optimistic about development prospects, as speculators starting buying land, hoping to resell the sites to homebuilders.
In the northwest suburbs, speculators are looking to buy sites in a broad swath between Schaumburg on the east and State Route 47, which cuts through Huntley, on the west, he said.
"You're starting to see some of those deals start to percolate right now," he said.

Brian Brunhofer, president and owner of Meritus Homes, said the rule adds $9,000 to $10,000 to the cost of a 2,600-square-foot to 3,600-square-foot home his company builds in the village.
"I wouldn't say that's a feature that many people come in looking for," Brunhofer said.
