Do you Need an Agent when Purchasing a New Home/Townhouse/Condo?

A common misconception when purchasing new construction is that you don’t need an REALTOR®. . . 

That friendly and helpful salesperson works for and represents the builder’s interest and the builder’s interest only. Shouldn’t you have independent representation?

A Buyer's agent can give you objective professional advice and insight during all phases of the process, such as contract, construction, walk-through, and closing.

A Buyer's agent is your exclusive advocate and will help you understand your contract and obligations including when to schedule construction inspections.

While the sale representative will always give the appearance that sales prices are non-negotiable, an experienced Buyer's agent can use recent and historical sales data to aid in the negotiation. Data that is not always readily available during new construction.

A Buyer's agent has knowledge of and can leverage contracts, real estate law and the real estate community when things go awry with the builder. AND THEY CAN AND OFTEN DO.

A Buyer’s agent costs you nothing as the builder has allocated a sales commission to be paid to a Buyer’s agent as most consumers are represented for the above reasons. When a buyer does not use a buyer’s agent, the builder either pays their sales representative a higher commission or pockets the savings.
