As your trusted real estate agent, I wanted to take a moment to inform you about an important matter regarding visiting new home sites. In many cases Builders pay a Buyer Agent commission similar to how it works when an individual sells their own home. However, if your agent is not with you the first time you visit a new home community the Builder may not agree to pay this co-op commission.
Maintaining a strong working relationship with builders is crucial in ensuring that your interests are protected throughout the home buying process. By involving me from the beginning and allowing me to schedule and accompany you on initial visits to new home sites, I can help ensure that you receive the best possible representation and support.
Here are a few reasons why it is important to contact me before visiting a new home site:
- Builder restrictions: Some builders have policies in place that prohibit agents from representing clients who have already visited their sites without their designated agent. By reaching out to me beforehand, we can avoid any potential conflicts and ensure that you have someone on your side looking out for your best interests.
- Negotiation power: As your real estate agent, I bring valuable experience and negotiation skills to the table. By involving me early on, I can help you navigate the home buying process, provide market insights, and negotiate favorable terms on your behalf. This includes negotiating price, upgrades, warranties, and other important aspects of the transaction.
- Expert guidance: I am here to serve as your advocate and guide you through every step of the home buying journey. By involving me before visiting a new home site, you can benefit from my expertise and industry knowledge. I can help you ask the right questions, evaluate the quality of construction, assess the location, and consider any potential resale factors.
Please feel free to contact me anytime to discuss any upcoming plans or to ask any questions you may have. I am here to assist you and provide you with the highest level of service possible.
