FREE Realtor for your new construction! 5 reasons to hire one and not pay for the service!
Why wouldn’t you use one?
Have you ever thought that you won’t need a REALTOR for your new construction project? Many people think that they don’t need a Realtor to help them and that’s great when all goes smoothly. But more often than not the building process has a few bumps in the road. Wouldn’t you appreciate having someone who can help you navigate those bumps? Someone that is really on your side and advocating for you and your best interests? Oh! And someone who is paid for by the seller!
One of my friends said:
“I didn’t use a real estate agent when I bought a new build and now I regret it. With my next purchase, I’ll definitely use a real estate agent. An agent can provide me with a quality education on the market, availability, what sellers expect, etc. Not to mention my time behind the scenes, gas, and the many questions I had. It would have been nicer to have someone that had my back.”
1. I represent YOU as the buyer.
This is a huge bonus as many buyers presume that the sales agents for the builder assume that responsibility and that they are working to YOUR benefit. Quite the contrary, the sales or builder agents represent the interests of the builder. While knowledgeable on many aspects (and we will need to consult with them occasionally) remember they are paid to represent the builder. I will be a trusted resource for real estate information and help you navigate the sometimes complex process of a new build.
2. Fiduciary responsibility.
Again, I represent YOUR interests. To the best of my ability, I can help navigate the new construction contract by highlighting questions you might want to ask the builder for clarification in order to understand specific clauses, riders, and upgrade options that impact you. I will ensure you receive all the information needed to know what you are committing to before you sign on the dotted line.
3. Navigate the entire transaction.
Once you have found the right model (and you may have by this point), and decided which upgrades you want and any standard features you don’t want, I will work on your behalf to navigate the entire transaction. This is particularly important when you are not in town during construction. Remember, it does not cost you anything to have me as your agent! The commission for the sale of a home has already been built into the price. Those dollars are allocated based on who is involved in the process.
4. I offer my expertise as a real estate agent.
As much as I love architecture, interior design, and all that entails, I am not an expert in these areas. I will offer my expertise as much as possible, but I am not able to give professional advice regarding design pricing, structural issues, or architectural suggestions. However, I will be able to be your sounding board, your advocate, and your boots on the ground. I will draw from my previous new construction project experiences to give advice and make suggestions.
5. It’s free to you.
As mentioned above, my services are free to you because I’m paid a commission by the seller. Take advantage of the opportunity to have asomeone committed to your best interests help you on your home building journey.
