How a REALTOR® Helps in a New Construction Transaction

Have you fallen in love with one of those perfect model homes in a new construction neighborhood? We get it, we love them too.

Buying a resale house versus new construction is a very different process. Having sold hundreds of homes, we know how important it is to think of a few essential things when it comes to purchasing a new construction home.

One of the most important things to know when purchasing new construction is the importance of - WORKING WITH A REALTOR. Yes, real estate agents represent buyers all the time on new construction purchases. It can be costly for you when you go into a model home and work directly with the sales representatives. They will oftentimes push unnecessary or costly upgrades.

New construction model homes are often stunning! But when you go to purchase one of your own, you are actually getting a shell of a home without all the cosmetic upgrades. The addition of certain upgrades can be extremely expensive from the builder, and while some are worth having done through the builder, not all are. An experienced agent like me can help you navigate through this process. And don’t forget you’re paying the interest for the lifetime of the loan on all of those fancy upgrades!
