The advantages of having a Realtor, such as Christy Joyer or Bridget Becker, to 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 home. We can professionally guide you through the 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 contract details must be precisely reviewed to ensure you get exactly the home you expect!
Is there any advantage to not using a Realtor to purchase a new home?
No. There is no financial advantage for you to buy directly from the builder. Builders have a “single price” policy, meaning you will be charged the same price whether your interests are represented by a Realtor or not. Just as in any resale, the Builder pays the majority of the Real Estate commission.
REMEMBER: The Builder requires that I accompany you on your first visit to the Builders model/open house, or they will NOT PAY your Realtor’s fees! If you happen to come across an open house call me and I will arrange instant access.
