Here are a few things to consider when buying new construction property.
Today we wanted to give you an idea of how new construction works, including tips on what to look out for and why you should think of us as a resource if you’re interested in purchasing a new construction home.
For one, there’s a misconception that the sales counselor that works for the builder on a new construction home is a real estate agent. The truth is that the sales counselor is working for the builder, and that’s why hiring your own real estate agent is in your best interest.
Further to that, the sales counselor only represents that single builder. As agents, we have access to all new construction homes across the city. By coming to us for your home buying needs, we can give you the whole range of new construction properties out there.
Another thing to consider is the fact that people believe that the buyer is responsible for paying their agent’s commission, but in reality, the builder actually pays the commission. So for you, it’s a win-win—you get free representation and you have someone in your corner to negotiate on your behalf.
If you’re thinking of purchasing new construction, we’d love to be your resource. Simply reach out to us, and we’ll help you with the rest. Hope to hear from you soon!
