Why You Should Use A Realtor When Building New Construction

1. Builder’s salesperson is working for the builder, not you-Salesperson is hired to maximize the builder’s profit margin.  Buyer’s agent you hire will listen to your needs and match you with the best builder/property.

2. Build price is the same with or without representation-It is a myth that a buyer will get a better price on the home without buyer representation.  Builders rely on the support from the agent community to stay in business.  The build-out cost quoted to you should be the same whether you have representation or not.  The scariest reality to a buyer is to build with a builder today who will be out of business tomorrow.  You can kiss your warranty goodbye.  The commission comes out from the builder’s bottom line profit and is not added to your build price.

3. An agent can save you money-Buyer’s agents have access to information that shows comparables sales so that you don’t overpay for a home.  How will you know that the $300,000 home you are building today will only sell for $250,000 tomorrow for that neighborhood.  A buyer’s agent is an un-biased, free resource to you.

4. Understanding the contract-Builder’s contracts are non-standard and pro-builder.  Do you know what you are signing?  

5. Resale value-Your agent will know what options have the most perceived value for resale and the plan modifications that will be detrimental for resale.    

6. Inspections– Ever wonder why some builders or their salesperson tell you because of the builder’s warranty, you don’t need to have a private inspection?
7.  When things go wrong– When you go into the new home site unrepresented, you will have no one in your corner when things go wrong.  A bad reputation within the entire agent community will have a stronger decision making impact to the builder than one buyer on their own who came in with no representation.

 8.  Shop the new construction design plan– Did you know that instead of picking one builder, you can go to a designer and have them help you make the modifications you are looking for?  Start fresh or use a plan that you already have and then you can take the design details and shop around for the best price by having 2 or 3 different builders give you an estimate?  What a great way to see which builder can save you the most amount of money?  Hire Heeran's Home Team as your buyer's agent and we will be the one fighting in your corner.
