Location of Neighborhood: Compass is a new build neighborhood in Erie, Colorado. This neighborhood is located off County Rd. 1 and Arapahoe Rd., which is on the West side of town. The unique location of Compass makes it easily accessible to Denver, Boulder, DIA, and all of the wonderful adventures Colorado has to offer.
Home Collections and Starting Prices: Two collections of homes called the 5,000’s and 6,000’s Series. Multiple floor plans and numerous structural options to choose from. Houses start in the low 500s with a build out time of approximately 12 months. Compass does not guarantee the availability of quick move in or inventory homes. The Fowler Group maintains open communication with the builder to ensure we are aware of what is available for your individual home buying needs.
What makes this neighborhood Special: Boulder County Living is very desirable for many of the residents, as Erie is Split between Boulder and Weld County. Compass is very much about location, location, location! There are so few brand new communities in Boulder County, and compass is one that offers optional outdoor living space to enjoy the great views of The Rocky Mountains. The residents also enjoy the community gardens, parks, trails, and open space.

Benefits of Utilizing a Buyers Agent When Looking at New Build Homes
Your Agent is Paid by the Builder: There is NO cost to you if you chose to be represented by a buyers agent through the process of building your new home. The builder will pay the fee due to your agent. There is never an increase to the purchase of your new build home as a result of utilizing a buyers agent.
Negotiation Expertise: Builders, like every seller, may be negotiable on the sales price. An agent can help you determine when a reduced sales price might be achieved with a specific builder in given situations.
Contract Review: Unlike Colorado Real Estate Commission approved contract forms that heavily favor the buyers of resale homes, new home contracts are drafted by a builder’s attorney and are extremely biased towards protection of the builder. An agent can help you understand these differences and suggest legal review if needed. You’ll be more informed about the risks/rewards of a new home purchase.
Inspection Guidance: Many new home buyers do not consider having an inspection on a new home. However, almost every new home probably has some construction details that are not to code or that were not done properly. This is true even though city/county building inspectors have conducted numerous on-site inspections. Your agent can help you decide on the need for your own inspector to accompany you on your pre-closing walk-through to make sure you end up with a complete punch list of items for the builder to correct.
Selection of Options and Upgrades: You may not need a particular option but it might be best to include it to avoid resale disadvantages. For example, you may not need a 3-car garage but you’d probably want to include one if 70% of the homes in the area have this feature The same applies to upgrades to flooring, countertops, plumbing, lighting etc. Some of these items can have broad appeal to a wide range of buyers if selected thoughtfully. As buyers agents with experience in the area, we can help guide you through some of these choices.
Closing: As your buyers agent we will attend the new home closing with you and ensure there are no mistakes and that you have a full understanding of the process.
When purchasing a re-sale home or building a new home, hiring reputable real estate agents will give you peace of mind throughout the process. The Fowler Group (Tom Fowler, Brie Fowler, Jessica Luginbill and Brandon Rearick) would love the opportunity to help you find your new home in Colorado.
