Buying a New Construction Home

Buying a New Construction Home

We were asked to put this report together, based on an experience friends of ours had at a new home site. Unaware of the disadvantages inherent to working with a builder’s salesperson, they signed a contract on the spot.

Did you know you should have your own Realtor represent you when buying a new construction home from a builder?

Here’s why:

  • First and foremost, the salesperson at the construction site sales office represents the builder only. That means they’re obligated to keep the builder’s best interests in mind, not yours!
  • Using the builder’s salesperson will NOT save you money. There’s no additional cost to you to have us represent you in the purchase your new construction home – and in some cases we’re able to negotiate savings.
  • We provide unbiased guidance on the many structural and design options available for your home.
  • Should there be any concerns that arise after you move in, we can act as your advocate with the builder, if needed. Again, the builder’s salesperson is representing the builder, not you.

 

If you’re interested in a new construction purchase, please contact us and we’ll let you know how we can help you. If you visit a new construction development without us, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Most builders request that you sign their register when you visit their model homes or construction site. You do NOT have to sign their register.
  • If you do sign a builder’s register, our name must be listed to ensure our relationship as your Realtor is honored. If you do sign the register, be sure to contact us immediately!

If we can help you in any way, don't hesitate to contact us!

“Drew was our Realtor in 2008 when we sold our home. We were very impressed by his knowledge of the market and honesty. This is why we asked Drew to help us in our search for a home this year.

Drew was patient and willing to look at all the homes… Read more

“We currently live out of state and Drew made selling our home easy! He made sure everything was in order, he made sure that we knew everything that was going on and updated us with the progress of inspections, repairs etc. He went above and beyond what he need to.

Chris and Jessica G.

“Drew helped my wife and I sell our Aurora home in June 2017. Drew took the time to explain the current housing market and he recommended a selling price that I believed to be too low. Drew explained by using his recommended selling price would increase the traffic of prospective buyers. Drew explained the range of offers he expected we’d receive and offered guidance on how quickly our house should sell given the market and the condition of our home. When our house went on the market, we had 14 … Read more
