Benefits of Having Your Own Realtor When Buying New Construction Homes

As a licensed Realtor in Raleigh, I’ve worked with many clients that have purchased newly constructed homes in new neighborhoods. Buying new construction can be a wise choice for some people. There is little to worry about in terms of immediate maintenance and you get all of the newest and most modern features and design plans.

Most new neighborhoods have an on-site office where you can walk in and receive more information about the neighborhood and also about specific homes. The person answering those questions for you is most likely an “on-site agent”. This agent is the builder’s representative and it’s their job to get their seller (the builder) the very best price and to represent their interests. Shouldn’t you have someone advocating for you?

The on-site agent will write your contract for you and do the paperwork. Many times they will even tell you having your own agent isn’t necessary and may end up costing you more money. This simply is not true. In fact, most people that use their own Realtor to purchase new construction end up getting a better deal in the long run. As a personal Buyer’s Agent in Raleigh, it is my job to get my clients the best deal by negotiating on their behalf. If the builder isn’t amicable to much movement off the price, I know the things to ask for that can be negotiated in to the deal such as upgraded appliances, paid HOA dues or blinds just to name a few.

Also when purchasing new construction, it is likely you will still want to have a home inspection performed. I help my home buyers in Raleigh schedule the inspection and make sure the builder’s representative gets our repair requests completed in a timely manner and that they meet your standards.

If you are interested in purchasing new construction, please call me to discuss having your own free representation in the process. I can help you save time and money, as well as lead you to make the best decision for you and your family.
