New Construction Homes For Sale - Why You Need Your Own Realtor®

Who doesn't like that new car smell?  For anyone who has ever visited a builder's model home the same can be said of the look....clean, fresh, modern, up to date...perfect. 

Sometimes the "new" can overwhelm another sense - common sense.  OK, maybe not so much common sense as the ability to be totally reasonable

This is the point when having your own buyer's agent is most needed.

Have you purchased a car and when it came time to "write up the deal" there were all these incidental "add ons?"   The same can happen when purchasing new construction.

First of all, as a buyer of new construction your real estate agent does not cost you anything.  The builder pays for your real estate agent.

Secondly,  builders do negotiate.  Why not have your agent available to ask questions as well and, in the end, help you negotiate the best deal possible?

And what about all those "add ons?"  Some builders like to present these as "options" or "upgrades." 

But, what is the real "after market value" of that builder upgrade package?    Is the builder quoting an inflated retail number?
