The fun part is talking about your selections. So I thought I would list the main ones that I'm most excited and must haves.
End unit - I have a townhouse. The end units are always the most coveted. Since I was the first under contract I got the pick of the litter.
Finished basement - Initially if I went with NVR they would give me $6500 (ish) towards a finished basement. I would be responsible for the other $3500. My realtor and I negotiated the $3500 as an additional incentive.
1st fl Powder room - We also negotiated that as an incentive.
42" maple cognac cabinets
Hw Floors in the foyer, kitchen, dining room and powder room
Upgrade the carpet pads. Upgraded carpet in basement.
Stainless steel range and dishwasher. I'm going to buy my own refrigerator and microwave. I believe if i shop around I can get a better price.
Additional windows in great room (living room)
Slate fireplace with blower - without the blower it's basically just for ambiance.
Soaking tub in master bath
Home theater wiring in basement
Outlet over fireplace for tv and outlet and wiring in kitchen island for the auxiliary boxes.
