Can’t find exactly what you want in the resale home market? Inventories of homes for sale are very low and it maybe difficult to find exactly what you are looking for. Building offers you the opportunity to customize your home to meet your specific needs and new construction homes are built to today’s building codes and standards using more energy efficient materials and can include the latest technology, built in. It is important to find the right location and choose the right builder for your needs.
This is where having your own real estate agent comes in handy. An agent experienced in new construction knows what makes the different builders in your market tick and brings a creative mind to the negotiation table. If your builder won’t bend on price, your agent may be able to work other incentives into the contract price. The cost of the Buyer’s Agent is generally built into the contract price whether or not the buyer has an agent working on their behalf. Make sure you work with an agent that has experience and knows the difference between a 2x4 and a 2x6, poured wall vs block wall, sill plate and a window sill, or a footer or a header…an agent without experience in the new construction field can cost you dearly at the negotiation table.
