Are you thinking about buying a new home? Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or planning to move up to a larger home, find the right agent who works hard and stay with you through the whole process. It is a long term relationship.

Do I need buyer's agent for NEW construction? Yes beacause

  • Builders hire a sales staff to work for them not you
  • Builders sales staff are exempt for the requirement for license
  • Builders sale staff are trained by the builder to sell their homes
  • Builders sales staff represent the builder
  • Builders sales contracts are written by the builders attorneys
  • Builders sales contracts are very different from the contracts used in resale
  • Builders pay the buyer’s agent fee
  • NOT having an agent will NOT save you money

I am not saying that builders are not reputable but don’t you think that it would be a good idea to have someone working for you, just for you?

So what are the advantages of having a real estate agent represent you when buying new construction? First let me say that just as with builders, not all agents are the same either. It is important that you hire an experienced agent with a good reputation.

 

Quality service is the key.
