Using A Realtor When Buying A New Construction Home

Using A Realtor When Buying A New Construction Home

Florida, and northeast Florida in particular, are experiencing a housing boom due to the influx of folks fleeing the high tax, highly regulated states in the Northeast and West Coast. Frankly, there just aren't enough existing homes to meet demand, thus many buyers are choosing new construction.

Whether you are buying a Quick-Move-In home, or building from the ground up, you should have a Realtor by your side. Builders welcome Buyer's Agents as we have the relationships with buyers and we stay engaged throughout the process. Just as with an existing home purchase, a Buyer's Agent will be there to assist in finding the right home and, when we do, we'll know what questions to ask the builder to ensure you receive the best deal possible. We'll be there when you sign the contract, we'll stay in touch with the builder to ensure that the construction is moving along, and keep you informed of the progress. We'll be there at the walk-through to ensure that when you take possession of your new home, it's in the condition you would expect of a brand new home.

Many buyers mistakenly believe that having a Buyer's Agent by their side means they won't get the best deal possible. Many believe that if the builder doesn't pay a commission to a Buyer's Agent, that the price of the home will be reduced. This couldn't be more incorrect! Builders establish the price of a neighborhood and rarely go below the established price on individual homes so as to maintain the market value for the entire neighborhood. Can you imagine buying a new home and then, days, weeks, or months later, somebody else buys a comparable home in the same neighborhood, but for less, dropping the value of your own home? There would be an uproar!

Builders bake into the price of a home the anticipated commissions for all agents involved, on both the seller and the buyer sides. If you choose not to use your own agent, the commission will still be paid, but to their own employee! The agents who work for the builders are fantastic, and they know their communities like the backs of their hands, but they work for the builder, not for you. When you bring your own agent to the table, our loyalty is to you and to watching over your best interests.  If you are buying from a distance, prior to relocating to the area, you need someone who can keep an eye on things. Even if you're local, it's best not to watch the sausage being made. Let us do that for you!

No matter what you're looking for in a home, the Life's A Beach House Team is here for you. We'll provide the same 5-Star service to our buyers who seek new construction as we do with customers buying an existing home.
