Thinking about Purchasing New Construction?
Why you need a Buyer’s Agent.
Every day home buyers head off to builders’ offices and model homes without a REALTOR® representing them as a Buyer’s Agent. Sure you can buy a home on your own, but aren’t you giving up a lot if you don’t use a REALTOR?
Before we talk about the advantages of having a REALTOR represent you when you purchase a new home from a builder, remember that this representation costs you nothing! According to the guidelines builders can not offer incentives to buyers in exchange for not using a REALTOR. Builders pay the REALTOR’s commission, and you get the benefits of representation!
When considering whether or not to use a REALTOR for your new home purchase, here are some things to consider: An even playing field
The builder hires salespeople to protect THEIR interests, shouldn’t you have someone looking out for you? Neighborhood Knowledge
