Do I need my Realtor when looking at new homes?

Is it necessary to have a Realtor represent you, when you are interested in purchasing a brand new home from a builder?

It is always good to have “another set of eyes.” Just like you would get a second opinion on other important decisions in your life. This is the largest purchase you will ever make. You are expecting your new home to have certain features. You are envisioning what your yard will look like. You are assuming that the 2 car garage will fit both of your cars, and that the driveway is not going to have a slope. You didn’t think the line of trees in your back yard would be removed. Even if a tree wasn’t sopposed to come down, if 3 sides of the roots were cut during construction, that tree must come down.

Who is going to care for your yard? You or the association? Is your home part of a homeowners association or a condo association? What are the differences between both associations. There are many more answers that you will need to know, in order to make the right decision for you. But, if you don’t know what to ask, how will you be sure? You assume that the new homes salesperson who is selling you the home and homesite will tell you all of this. Some will and some may not.

Being that your new home is such a large investment, working with another Real Estate professional can be a wise decision.One who can read blueprints, as well as site and grading plans, landscape plans, and who also understands builder options can offer comfort to you in the building of your new home!
