DO I NEED A REALTOR IF I BUY NEW CONSTRUCTION?
Absolutely! Would you go to court without being represented by an attorney? Of course not!
A new home purchase represents one of the largest financial investments you'll experience in your lifetime and while that salesperson seems friendly and helpful, they work for and represent the builder's interest and the builder's interest only. It's no coincidence that new home sales involve real estate agents on the buyer side of the transaction nearly 80% of the time. You may also not know that the builder is not required to have a licensed agent working with them, and many do not. When you hire a Realtor, you will be hiring a licensed agent who represents YOU, not the builder. Your Realtor looks out for your best interests
