Yes! You need a REALTOR ® when building a new house...

Sometimes people tend to think that they do not need to partner with a Realtor when building a new construction house! Here are some reasons why this is not really in YOUR best interest...

Everyone needs someone in their corner that has their clients best interest in mind at all times. Builders are going to be looking out for their best interest, rightfully so! Every company has to make money, or they will not be in business very long.  It's very common and known that most builder contracts are very builder friendly and not in the buyers favor. For someone to go through the process of building a new house without competent representation is a gamble and dangerous.  A big miconception is that if you don't use a Realtor and choose to represent yourself, is that you will save some money. This is not necessarily true! Expecially with larger national builders. So why not have someone represent you when it doesn't cost you anything? In Real Estate transactions, the seller is the paying commissions anyway. 

Recently, I was able to help prevent a client from having to pay for something they shouldn't have had to pay for. The builder did not do anything intentionally wrong but it was a simple mistake. A mistake that could've cost my clients nearly $500 more than it should have. This is more proof that they needed someone in their corner and another set of eyes on the contract.

I have experience in working with builders and having a good relationship with them. Everyone building a new house needs someone to lookout and fight for them. I'd be honored to have the opportunity to represent you and your family!

Thanks!
