Do you need representation when buying a New Home from a New Home Builder?
The on-site agent is representing the home builder and looking out for their interests!
Ernie knows the right questions to ask when negotiating the price of the home. With all of his New Home Construction experience, he can make recommendations when buying options for the home that best fit your needs and to add resale value, instead of adding the items that make the builder the most money. There are options that the builder makes more profit on. Win more upfront when negotiating by having an expert in dealing with builders and new homes on your side. Ernie can recommend the best suited home site for you for your needs and for resale in the future - not recommend a lot based on which one the builder needs to get rid of. Some buyers are told by on-site agents that they do not need representation and that they handle everything with the building process. While the builder handles the building process, Ernie will ensure that you get the best of everything while protecting you on one of the largest investments of your life.
Ernie will know the right questions to ask when negotiating the price of the home. The builder pays a REALTOR fee out of the marketing proceeds already allotted for and this doesn't affect your price when negotiating. A REALTOR can also show you other comparable resale properties which is very important to ensure you're making the right decision in building or buying a new home. You may be able to purchase a home on your own without representation but did you really know to ask all the right questions?
