Purchasing new construction is usually more complicated and intimidating than buying a resale home. It is important with a new-home purchase that a buyer hire a real estate agent to represent them in this process. This agent should be a local expert and have experience with newly constructed homes. Builder contracts and the building process is different from what most real estate agents deal with on a daily basis, so having new construction experience is important.
As a real estate agent who specializes in an area with a lot of new construction, buyers ask me all the time if they can use a real estate agent when they are purchasing new construction. The answer is not 'can', it is should!
In general, builders’ model homes are staffed by agents who work directly for and represent the builder. A buyer also needs to have a real estate agent who represents them and looks after their best interests.
Keep in mind that most builders will require that the real estate agent accompany and register the buyer on their first visit to the builder’s model home or community. Make sure you don’t just “stop by” the new-home community without us. If you do, you could lose the opportunity to have your own representation.
I just re-sold a home that a buyer purchased without the representation of a real estate agent. The sellers told me that they were never told that there was mello-roos and HOA in the neighborhood! Real Estate agents know the questions to ask, make sure you call us today before visiting a new construction community!
