There’s nothing quite as exciting as buying a new construction home. For many buyers, this is the opportunity to check all the boxes on their dream home lists as they get to customize many of the features in a new build. New construction homes give buyers the chance to move into a house that no one has lived in before, which is a desirable trait for many buyers.
But for many, the question remains whether buying a new construction home from the builder or from a realtor is the better option. Many homeowners wonder, “Do I need a realtor to buy a new home?” The answer is different for everyone, however, there are definite benefits and advantages to working with a realtor when you buy a new construction home:
Realtors work For You
Going to a presentation center can feel overwhelming, especially with sales representatives touting the amazing benefits and features of their homes. While this may sound enticing, you need to remember that the sales reps in the presentation centers work for the builder. Their goal is to sell homes for the builder. A realtor is mandated by the government to look out for the best interests of the client.
A Realtor has More Experience
Although buying a new construction home may seem like a straightforward deal, there are numerous things you may not consider that a professional realtor would know about. For instance, realtors have a deep understanding of the market in their area, knowing the proper value and important features to look for. A realtor will be able to give you their honest opinion about a new home that a builder will not give.
Realtors Handle the Paperwork
Expect loads of paperwork with any real estate deal, even a new construction home. For buyers, it’s nice to know that the paperwork is handled by a professional rather than trying to make heads or tails of extensive legalese jargon. A realtor will make sure that the paperwork is filled out correctly and that there are no red flags or questionable terms.
You Will Build a Relationship for the Future
Realtors offer valuable recommendations for homeowners. Your realtor can recommend a great moving company, home decorator, house cleaner, and more. In addition to these recommendations, realtors are a great resource to keep in touch with. Even if you plan on staying in your new construction home for a while, there may come a day where you need to sell. If you have already worked with a great realtor on the purchase of your home, it only makes sense to use the same realtor to sell the home when you need it sold.
