A common buyer misconception is “If I don’t have an agent, I will get a better deal.” Typically, this is not true. The listing agreement is between the builder (seller) and the listing broker, and whether there is one agent or two involved in the transaction, the real estate fee paid out is the same amount. Often the builder has already included the buyer’s REALTOR® commission into the price. f you enter into a transaction without an agent or representation, who is looking out for your best interests?
The fact that the builder’s sales agent represents the builder and works for the builder, may leave you vulnerable.
So who’s in your corner, to look out for your best interests? The answer is simple, “no one.”
Keep in mind that a new construction contract is written by the builder and for the builder's best interest, and it varies greatly from a standard real estate purchase agreement. As an experienced and professional REALTORS®, we will help you understand the contract and advise you on how specific clauses and options may affect your purchase, before signing on the dotted line.
We possess substantial knowledge and expertise in real estate, and we understand new construction market and the current market conditions. We guide you through the process, and help manage your expectations. From mortgage application to closing on your new home, we help oversee the behind the scenes steps that will insure a successful transaction.
If an issue arises during construction, we can be a buffer between you and the builder or their sales agent. We make sure you are getting what was agreed to and help get things resolved throughout the transaction. After the build process and as your go-to professionals, we serve as your real estate resource.
In today’s market, builders fully expect buyers to be represented and have easy ways for your agent to register you. If you proceed to a model with us or represention, be sure to inform the sale center agent that you have a REALTOR®, or you may not receive the representation you deserve.
