5 Reasons to Engage a REALTOR® When Buying a New Home

When purchasing a new home, it’s very easy to just walk into a show home get excited about what you see and start shopping. Unfortunately, this this approach has a number of pitfalls for you.

The builder’s representative is NOT licensed and is NOT obligated to work in your best interests. The builder’s representative usually operates under one of two objectives:

  1.     To sell you a home with the lowest specification for the highest price they can get you to pay. Or
  2.     To sell you a home with the highest specification and highest price they can get you to pay.

It really depends upon the builder and their culture.

As a consumer your goal is normally the opposite. Most new home

Finding your next home is most often a tactile experience, i.e. you will want to visit most homes to ‘try it on for size’. In normal times this is easily achieved by setting up a showing or going to an Open House. Alas we no longer live in normal times and until the Corona virus scare is over you will have to be a little more creative.
