Why You Should Work With a REALTOR® To Represent You When Buying a New Construction Home
It’s logical to assume that the sales agents at a new home construction project work for the builder. That’s true, but what you might not know is that since they are employed by the builder or construction company, they have a duty to the builder and not to you. It’s like when you buy a new or used car from a car dealer. They’re trying to get the best deal they can for their employer as well as themselves (their commission). Your best interest is not their best interest.
It’s true that they’ll have to follow all applicable laws, but it doesn’t mean they are negotiating on your behalf. While it might not be a huge deal when buying a car comparatively, spending well over a half-million of your hard-earned dollars on a new home in San Diego is a big deal and also why you need an experienced and contract-smart real estate agent on your side.
Buying a new or existing home in California has a lot of paperwork and contracts to read and deal with. It’s very important that you understand all of the terms and conditions of what you are signing and will be paying for. After all, this will be your family home for many years to come. This is where a contract-savvy real estate agent comes in. They can guide you through the whole process and answer any questions you have.
Why You Need Amy On Your Side As Your REALTOR®
Amy has been a full-time agent since 2006, helping both home buyers and sellers. She is successful not only because of how hard she works with her clients, but because she also stays up to date on real estate contracts and changes happening in the industry. She does this by continually attending real estate classes and webinars not only about contracts but many other important aspects of real estate as well.
Being well prepared is a key factor in why she is so successful at negotiating on behalf of her clients and making sure that they get a fair deal and are not taken advantage of. Agents that don’t continually stay educated and work real estate full time do their clients an injustice.
When Amy represents a buyer who decides to purchase a new construction home, she still works with her clients from well before they walk into the sales office for the first time, to the closing of the transaction and beyond. She stays in touch and is always available to answer questions as they come up in the future. Why is that important to you?
Some buyers agents only walk a client into the new construction sales office to sign their buyers in so that they may get a referral percentage of the commission on the transaction. Then they simply walk away and are done dealing with it, leaving their clients to negotiate on their own.
Do yourself a favor and work with an agent like Amy who will be there for you every step of the way!
Amy also stands out from common agents by making herself available to you to answer your questions 7 days a week, even before and after most people’s normal office hours. She always takes calls and returns voicemail, even on holidays, vacation, etc.
Why is this important when buying a new construction home? Isn’t it true that the buyer can simply go in by themselves, and the builders agents (sales office) will take care of everything? Sure, technically that’s possible and is how it works when an uninformed buyer doesn’t have a real estate agent working for them.
But wait! Remember that construction company sales agents don’t work for you, they work for the builder. It’s not in their best interest to do you any favors and go above and beyond what they legally have to. While there’s nothing wrong with a builder making as much profit as they can (that’s how our whole economy works after all), you want to make sure that you’re getting a fair deal also. That’s just common sense.
Amy is there with you at every meeting and inspection to listen to the negotiations between you and the sales office, and to ask questions that you might not even think of. She knows what questions to ask on your behalf. It’s also worth repeating that she knows contracts well and is a skillful and savvy negotiator that works only for you, making sure you get a fair deal.
