How does the national builder make a bigger profit margin than the local builder?
There are 3 main factors to consider:
-Real Estate Agent Cost
When we run the math in order to figure the costs for both the national and the local builder. I run a profit margin at about 12% for local and 20% for national builders.
Yes, a national builder has a higher profit margin but that is because they typically have buying power, in house agents and in house financing.
BUT…the math still works out to where the finished lot is worth about the same amount of money for either builder!
In the end, a finished lot is worth what a finished lot is worth. It’s only worth what the market will bear.

Today we are talking Land Deals and getting paid.
When you exit out of a deal versus when you get paid isn’t necessarily going to happen at the same time.
In our course, Land Deals Revealed we teach all aspects of becoming a Land Acquisition Specialist. Here are some of the basic steps that we take in the land deal process:
- Executed Land Purchase Contract
- Feasibility Study Completed
- Project Approved/Closing
- Finished Lot Sale
- House Sale
Throughout the steps, there are different potential paydays. The key is patience. The longer you walk the project through the steps the larger your payday.
