Building a New Home

New Home Construction

Question

Should you use a realtor when building a brand new home?

Answer

Yes!

Why

  • First, buyer representation costs you nothing. Its in the builders interest to have realtors bring buyers to their new homes and they pay for it, not you.  The price you pay for your home does not change when you use a real estate agent. Why not let someone with experience and knowledge represent you and guide you through the process?
  • Second, as your real estate agent, I represent YOU and have YOUR best interests at heart. I am familiar with many builders and understand the entire process of building a new home.
  • Last, selecting your new home is just the beginning.  Negotiating upgrades, inspections, financing, and closing are just some of the items you’ll need expert help with.  I’ll be right beside you every step of the way.
