When building a home, it is recommended to use a Realtor to guide you through the process:
- Your agent is a resource of knowledge for all new-home communities and builders
- Many area builders value real estate agents and the fact that well-qualified leads are brought to them. The real estate commission is considered part of the builder’s promotional budget and not a negotiable part of the home price
- Agents provide negotiating power
- A new home is a huge investment – have a professional there to guide you from understanding the contract all the way to the closing table
