Buying New Construction Homes.....
CAUTION! : If you see or have any interest in viewing a new home, DO NOT MAKE CONTACT with the builder. Read some of the reasons below. A builder won't let you bring in a Realtor to represent you later. Call me immediately and I will register you. They would prefer you don’t have representation.
Why do I need a Realtor to represent me in the purchase of a New home from a builder?
The builder has a representative and they are just that, they identify a builder. While most builders are honest, sometimes the sales people will accidently or even intentionally overlook certain things that are important for you to know. We know what questions to ask and will leave no stone unturned so you can avoid problems later
Will it cost me money to have a Realtor represent me?
No, on the contrary, not only will I represent you and look out for your interest which ultimately may save you money, but we are paid by the seller and can even offer you some incentives for allowing us to assist you.
Since the Builder pays the Realtor, does the builder charge more when I go with a Realtor?
No, the prices are the prices and that stays the same, however by asking the right questions we may be able to get you some benefits you never thought of asking for.
I will be with you through the process of choosing colors, textures and options in the home. Let my expertise help you decide what are wise options and what are not as well as just giving you support at such an important and stressful time. I can also assist you with more cost effective options which many times you can do after you close.
Inspecting the Home
I will upon completion of the home, prior to doing a final walk through with you, hire and pay for a certified home inspector to do a complete home inspection as well as a 4 point inspection, to lower your insurance cost.
Who pays for closing costs?
Unfortunately, on most new homes, you pay the closing costs. As a thank you I will credit you anywhere from $ 500.00 to $ 1,000.00 to put towards your closing costs. The builder will pay my commission.
