Why You Should Secure A Realtor BEFORE Visiting Other New Construction Locations
Local Realtor offers Great Advice if you are considering buying a Brand New Home
By: Gretchen Lennon Real Estate
Some new home buyers mistakenly think that having a Realtor will cost you more money. This isn't the case. The builder pays the commission to your buyer's agent and it's already figured into the price of all homes. Builders can't negotiate on purchase price due to appraisal guidelines and a Realtor can help you to ensure everything is done correctly and in your best interest. Having a representative to help you won't negatively affect the price at all and you certainly won't save money by not having one. Oftentimes, it's quite the contrary. Not having a Realtor will likely cost you more money.
We Work For You
This means we will find you the best home at the best price that fits your family's needs exactly. We aren't limited by offering you only the floorplans or locations that one builder has available. We will open up your opportunities to ALL builders in ALL locations to find the perfect match for you!
Local Knowledge of The New Construction Market
Obviously you are aware that some builders are much better than others. There's no way to know that unless you have a professional helping YOU rather than representing their builder/employer. Securing a Realtor is the best way to use unbiased knowledge of all builders, all locations and all financing options available.
We Can Help You To Save Money
As experienced Buyer Representatives, we know which months of the year can offer a better deal, which builders are negotiable, who will provide kitchen appliances or free upgrades and much more. Going directly to the builder representative will generally eliminate all of those opportunities at better pricing and free upgrades which means you pay MORE for the same things that we can negotiate for free.
Woah, Watch Out For Their Contracts!
You never want to visit a new construction site or model home without your Realtor representative. Most new construction contracts are over 50 pages long and you need to have terms weighted in YOUR best interest, rather than the builder's. This is likely the biggest investment you'll make for your family so you want to ensure it's done correctly, under the best possible terms.
You'll hear from every builder in town saying "We do not negotiate". A professional knows what they are really looking for and we can show you ways to save literally thousands of dollars when investing in your new home.
When considering building a new home, you'll want a Realtor on your side. A Realtor represents your best interests throughout the entire buying process and this costs you absolutely nothing. There is no need to gamble with the largest investment of your life. I'd be happy to have a conversation with you to answer your questions and get you started with some new construction options.
