Having a Realtor represent you while buying a new home from a builder is a must. It can save you in money, time, and quality of your home.
The best choice for a consumer is to choose a Realtor who specializes in being a Buyer’s Agent. An experienced and diligent Buyer’s Agent will keep updated on all the new construction and become familiar with what each builder is offering the client. A Buyer’s Agent who is familiar with the area and all the new construction and builders.. gives you, the consumer, an edge on receiving the best possible pricing, additional upgrades, and interest rates. The Buyer’s Agent uses comparisons from community to community allowing for aggressive negotiate and to aquire the best deal for you..the client. Which in essence can save you thousands!
Using a Realtor can save you time. Your Realtor or Buyer’s Agent will work as a liaison between you and the builder’s agent. The Realtor will communicate with you and continue to work closely with builder’s agent to keep abreast of any changes, delays, or issues the builder may be experiencing. With the Realtor working as your liaison, your time and investment is protected.
Finally using a Realtor who is a Buyer’s agent allows for your home to be quality built. An experienced Realtor will visit the property often to insure your investment is protected and the builder is completing the construction up to your standards and to the standards the builder promised. It is important that a builder is aware that a client has a Realtor who is checking on the investment. Having a realtor also helps the builder as it allows for communication with any issues from one knowledgeable agent to the other. The builder can rely on the Buyer’s Agent to explain if any issues or concerns arise and for the realtor to communicate that to you…his/her client.
Using a Realtor or buyer’s agent can definitely save you in money, time, and quality.
WHY YOU NEED AN AGENT WHEN BUYING A HOME
Cost to You
Nothing! Any compensation given to REALTOR is recognized by the builder as a marketing fee and has no impact on the final cost of the home. Builders desire, expect and encourage REALTOR participation.
Savings to You
Are you getting what you’re entitled to have … both in quality and value? Your experienced agent knows what you should receive and what “extras” might be available.
Resale…Appreciation & Profit
Give your investment the best opportunity for appreciation at resale. Questions concerning site location, builder, design and decor are important. Your agent knows you are building not only for today … but for tomorrow.
You Are Represented
With your real estate agent, YOU are represented! Your agent’s experience, knowledge, and reputation represents strength and leverage on your behalf.
