Why You Still Need Your Own Realtor When Purchasing New Construction
If you’re purchasing a new construction home, do you still need an agent working on your behalf? Actually, yes—and today we’ll explain why.
With inventory being at a recently low, a lot of building has been going on in the Triangle area. As a result, we now have more new construction properties than resale homes available on the market.
But before you make the move to purchase one of these newly built homes, there is a key factor you’ll need to consider: representation. The agent at the construction site is certainly knowledgeable, but they aren’t there with your best interests in mind. They are there to represent the builder.
The information the on-site agent can provide will be invaluable in any new construction deal, but you still need to have an agent of your own when purchasing new construction. Having strong representation will help make sure you understand all the fine details of the process as they relate to you and your needs.
"Having your own agent during a new construction purchase will not only ensure that the process goes smoothly, but also that you’re able to earn the best possible deal."
There are many steps and meetings that go into a new construction purchase, so having an agent on your behalf will not only ensure that the process goes smoothly, but also that you’re able to earn the best possible deal.
