As you begin looking for a home, the allure of new construction is undeniable. You get to be the very first to live in it and don’t have to worry about someone elses lack of cleanliness or care for the home. It’s full of brand-new appliances and the finishes you choose fit your taste and desires. You also won’t have to worry about making any drastic cosmetic changes for years.
So if you are interested in buying new construction, here is a very important factor to consider: The builder’s agent will be ready to help you with the process but make no mistake – you’ll want and need your own real estate agent from the very beginning. Even if it seems simple and less hassle to use the builder’s on-site agent, you’re going to want someone representing YOUR SIDE OF THE DEAL.
This is where Rebarchick Real Estate comes in! When you choose to have us represent you with your new home purchase:
- You won’t pay any realtor fees or commissions (the new home builder pays those direct to us).
- We will give you a $2,500 rebate that you can use towards home upgrades or closing costs.
When buying new construction, here’s what Rebarchick Real Estate will help with that you might miss out on if you use just the builder’s agent:
- Get the most value for your money, with the least amount of hassle and frustration.
- Negotiating extra perks like upgrades and amenities.
- A builder typically has a ‘preferred’ lender that they will recommend, but we’ll make sure that you’re getting a mortgage that works best for your financial situation. We can also provide other financing recommendations for consideration.
- Assist you with your new home inspection to make sure there are no construction defects or problems with the home before taking possession.
Please note that it’s important to have your real estate agent accompany you on your first visit to the new construction. The builder will be responsible for paying the commission, and needs to know if you’ll have a real estate agent representing you. So bringing your agent to the first visit will make it clear that the builder’s agent will be responsible for paying commission. Some builders might even refuse to pay your agent a commission if you don’t register the agent the first time you visit the home on a new construction site.
