The new construction home buying process can be intimidating. Not only are you faced with a myriad of choices – from foundation to fixtures – you are navigating complex territory, such as loans, negotiations, and closings. Do you need a realtor or agent to help guide you?
The appeal of building a new home is undeniable: you have the freedom to select the design, the features, the amenities, and the location to ensure each aspect suits you, your needs, and your wants. A realtor or real estate agent is on your side, representing your best interests first and foremost. The builder will have a their own agent, and they, too, can help during the new construction home buying process. However, having your own agent can give you that much more peace of mind and assurance as you proceed.
The builder’s agent represents the builder (no surprise there!). When you choose a builder with integrity and who operates with honesty and transparency, they can be an invaluable resource. At the end of the day, though, their allegiance is with their client. Another reason to introduce your own agent from the get-go is that the seller (i.e., the builder) is responsible for paying the commission. Bringing them in the very first visit is critical so they know you are properly represented.
Your agent helps you get the most value for your money, while streamlining the process and taking away much of the stress. They can assist you in negotiating extras, finding favorable funding, overseeing the home inspection, helping you through closing, and more.
