The advantages of having an agent help you purchase a new home are the same as those for purchasing a resale home…
• Knowledge of the market
• Help in finding the perfect home quickly
• Expertise in contract writing/negotiation
• Closing assistance.
The builder has a professional representative watching out for his/her needs, and you need the same expert representation.
Buying a new home is a little more difficult and time-consuming than buying a resale. A real estate agent can professionally guide you through this process.
It is very important that your interests be professionally represented when you are entering into a contract for a semi-custom or build-to-suit home. These transactions are complex and the contract details must be exact in order to protect you and to ensure you get exactly the home you want!
REMEMBER – the Builder requires that your Agent accompany you on your first visit to the Builder’s sales office, or they will NOT PAY your representative’s fee!
