The best bet would be to contact a local realtor. Even if you go with a new build, they can help negotiate you a good deal & they should have an insight as to what companies to avoid. They can also help you figure out what the closing costs will be and all that jazz. If you get a good realtor, they can help break down all the legal mumbo jumbo that the builders might throw at you.
