Always Bring a Realtor with You to Purchase a New Construction Home

March 13, 2019

 | 

Have you ever been to a model home? It’s one of my favorite parts of the Real Estate business. I LOVE seeing new floorplans, the incredible upgrades and features, and most of all- the decorating!

 

Everything is new- and- fresh- and- shiny and with all of the visual stimulation, it’s easy to get caught up in the moment and want to sign a contract right then and there. But don’t let the awe of a stunning model home distract you from getting the best deal possible- which would be with your Realtor present.

 

HERE’S THE THING ABOUT NEW CONSTRUCTION: THE SITE AGENT- WHILE SUPER FRIENDLY AND ACCOMMODATING- WORKS FOR THE BUILDER.

Why should you use a Realtor?

March 5, 2019

 | 

New Construction models are everywhere these days.  Even if you are purchasing a home built in a new community, it is important to use a Realtor to advocate for you. Site agents can be very helpful in selecting upgrades, floorplans, and any details for the new home but, the Builder sales representative represents the Builder.

 

I can help you find a new home and as a Real Estate Agent, I can assist with contract terms, negotiating price, adding upgrades, & finding money for closing costs. In addition there may be other financing options outside of the builder options.

 

The most important aspect of having a Realtor® work with you… it is FREE!  The builder or seller pays me when you are clear to the Builder Sales representative you are working with me and will have my assistance throughout the purchase process!
