Don't Step Foot In a Model Home Without Reading This
Before you tour a model home, there is one thing you need to know that could save you thousands of dollars.
The real estate agent that greets you at the model represents the builder and the builder's best interests
Did you know you can have your own agent that represents you and your interests?
There are a dozen reasons why you should have your own real estate agent when building a new home.
So, what do you need to know to save yourself thousands of dollars?
If you plan on using your own agent to represent your interests during the home buying and building process, you better bring them to your first visit to a model home.
The reason is if you are unaccompanied at your first visit, the builder will register you in their system as unrepresented. If you want to have an agent help you in the future, you will have to pay your agent directly and that cost is on top of the list price of the home.
If you bring your agent to the first visit, the list price includes a commission to your real estate agent.
So, if you don’t bring your agent to the first showing, you are actually paying for the benefit but not getting it.
This small piece of advice will save you thousands of dollars.
Why You NEED Your Own Agent
As your agent, I can do all of this...
- Show You Model Homes From ALL Builders
- Help You Choose The Right Builder (some builders are better than others)
- Help Write The Contract, Explain It, and Negotiate On Your Behalf
- An Independent Set of Eyes and Ears
- The Builder Has An Agent, Why Shouldn’t You?
