Do You Really Need A Realtor When You Buy New Construction

Do You Really Need A Realtor When You Buy New Construction

Would you go court without being represented by an attorney? Of course not. 
Buyers are represented without charge by a Realtor®

A common misconception when purchasing new construction is that you don’t need an agent.  Great Advice for our Las Vegas Buyers out there... on New Homes.  Call us today - We know all incentives that ALL new home builders are offering!!!!!

1) The site agent represents the builder, they are not there to "help" the consumer.
2) A buyer's agent can inform the client of issues in construction, knows what questions to ask, you don't always get what you see.
3) How many of those foreclosures were with customers that had no representation? A lot of them! Funny how a house appraises for the builder, but when you go to resale, it doesn't, ever wonder how that happens?

4) An experienced agent will save the consumer money building with new construction, builders do not discount the price because the consumer has no representation. Real Estate  is a huge investment, why not use a professional that has years of experience and knowledge to put to work for you. It is like trying to be your own attorney. Not usually a good idea.

5.  That friendly and helpful salesperson works for and represents the builder’s interest and the builder’s interest only. Shouldn’t you have independent representation?
6.  An agent can give you objective professional advice and insight during all phases of the process, such as contract, construction, walkthrough, and closing.
7.  An agent is your exclusive advocate and will help you understand your contract and obligations including when to schedule construction inspections.
8.  While the sale representative will always give the appearance that sales prices are non-negotiable, and experienced agent can use recent and historical sales data to aid in the negotiation.  Data that is not always readily available during new construction.
9.  An agent has knowledge of and can leverage contracts,  real estate  law and the real estate community when things go awry with the builder.   AND THEY CAN AND OFTEN DO.
10.  A buyer’s agent costs you nothing as the builder has allocated a sales commission to be paid to a buyer’s agent as most consumers are represented for the above reasons. When a buyer does not use a buyer’s agent, the builder either pays their sales representative a higher commission or pockets the savings.

New home builders are not required to tell you about any special deal, or option, or anything else that is not in the seller's interest. In fact,  In fact in some states they are REQUIRED BY LAW  NOT to offer these facts to you, since they REPRESENT THE SELLER ONLY.

Hope this helps our buyers out there.  Dont Just walk in without a Realtor... There are horror stories out there where buyers used their new homes sales representatives...
