So you’ve decided to go ahead and build your dream home. Now here comes the fun…hard part; deciding on the right development, the right builder, the right floor plan for your family’s lifestyle, the best options, and so on. But first, let’s dispel a few rumors out there.
You will save on the price of your new home if you don’t use an agent.
False. You will be charged the same price whether you use a real estate agent or not. Builders depend on Realtors to bring in new clients. A Realtor fee or incentive is built into the builder’s marketing costs and does not affect the buyer’s bottom line.
The builder’s sales representative is your Realtor.
False. The onsite agent represents the builder, not you. They are a necessary part of the process, but remember – their main goal is to make a profit for the builder.
