I feel like i owe ALL my sellers an apology! I have decided to sell my home in Lone Tree and getting a house ready to sell is NO FUN!!! As a real estate agent we sometimes forget how
Do I Need A Realtor ® For A New Home Build
The Answer is YES you ABSOLUTELY DO!
New constructions are plentiful here in Metro Denver and while they have many benefits, their is a large misconception with buyers in thinking they can save more money if they don't have a REALTOR with them. This is FALSE!
Many buyers think the sales rep that works for the builders will help them get a good deal and because they work on the inside, they may get a better deal from them. What many people don't think about is the sales associate is working FOR THE BUILDERS and not you. Their success comes from getting the best deals for the builders, their employers. But when you use an agent, you are the employer and you have someone looking out for your best interest.
What your Realtor can do for you is priceless. They can help negotiate better deals, sometimes even get you free upgrades and do whatever else they need to look out for your best interest. Would you try and buy an existing home on your own? Most people wouldn't so why would you try and buy a brand new one on your own? It can be a very daunting process and surprises may jump out at any moment. A broker on my team just dealt with some builders on behalf of his clients because they ended up building the wrong house entirely on the plot of land his clients wanted. Talk about panic mode, luckily they had their agent to help resolve the issue.
So if you plan on looking at new builds, strongly consider bringing your trusted agent along. You won't regret it and plus, the builders pay the buyers agents commission. So you are either unprotected and the builders save an extra 3% (and no they will not pass the savings down to you) or, you can bring your Realtor along FOR FREE, and have all your best interests protected.
