Home Why You NEED a Realtor When Going to Model Homes
November 11, 2016
When looking to build a home, going to see models are a great way to decide what you want and where you’d like to build. Going to different model homes can help jump start your creativity and your wish list for what you’re looking for. Before you start looking at models, here’s an IMPORTANT tip to keep in mind. You must have a Realtor with you when you go check out a model home for the first time! Why? Keep reading and we’ll tell you!
The Buyer’s Rep Will End up Representing You
If you go check out a model home without your own Realtor, the builder’s rep will step in and represent you instead.
Why is this a bad thing?
Builder’s reps are working for the builder and have their best interest in mind, not yours.
You won’t have any negotiating power in the process. Again, they’re trying to get the builder the best deal possible.
You won’t actually get a better deal working with the builder rep than with your own Realtor.
Using Your own Realtor is FREE!
If you work with the builder’s rep, they will get an extra 3% from the sale, while it’s FREE for you to work with your own Realtor!
Hiring your own Realtor doesn’t just bring your representation, but it brings their expertise and experience as well. You’ll get all this without having to pay them out of pocket.
