Using a construction company’s real estate agent instead of your own when buying new construction homes is not the money-saving move you may assume it is. It can cost you more money in the long run. While there is nothing wrong with builders using their agents, from a home buyer’s perspective, having someone in your corner is just intelligent.
Your Agent Works for You
A builder’s agent is under no obligation to share information that could benefit you, although they are required to operate fairly and honestly. Their responsibility is to their client, the builder. So, if you rely on them, you may not know that the new home’s price is negotiable.
On the other hand, by working with your agent, you get the advantage of their expertise, resources, and insight. They know the market and have access to insider information that can help you.
Your Agent Improves Your Chances of Getting a Sought After Home
Some builders of new homes are well known among buyers, which can result in a run on the homes they construct – to the point where buyers wait in long lines to secure a lot. If you try to go it alone in this situation, you could lose out on the home you want so badly.
An agent knows the tricks of the trade that will vastly improve their clients’ chances of getting the home they desire. They will use these tactics to ensure your name is on the builder’s list.
Agents Can See Into the Future
Examples include a disruptive major freeway planned for construction near the lot you are eyeing or a steeply sloped yard in a ravine lot that will prevent you from thoroughly enjoying your time outdoors. Your agent can give you a heads-up about these factors so that you can make a fully informed purchasing decision.
