Buying New Home Construction is not as easy as it looks.

These are essential tools in your arsenal to maximize your buying leverage, but read below to find out more reasons as to why you should have an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent when purchasing New Home Construction.
Help you find a reputable builder that’s right for you.
There are a number of things that could happen outside of your control that your agent will be well-equipped to handle. Their experience in the real estate industry gives them an advantage in finding the right people to handle these situations in a stress-free manner. Your local builders have reputations for different things, and your agent should know their track record. They can ask the right questions for you which you may have not thought about, and some of these include: What is the quality of their labor and workmanship, what warranties are offered for your protection, and what is their building timeline like? Having an agent to clear these matters up is a great first step in avoiding unnecessary headaches later in the building process.
Help you find the perfect property and lot.
You may have done your own research about new communities popping up and which lot is perfect for you, but it is so important to review your options with your agent. They have trained eyes who know what you are looking for and can give you confirmation that you truly have found the perfect lot. Your agent has access to unadvertised communities that could draw your attention, and they can communicate the important neighborhood features that you may have not been aware of. There are also times when buyers get entranced by the beautiful model home and draw-ups of picturesque properties but may not be delivered exactly how they thought. Here is where your Exclusive Buyer’s Agent comes in to review topography with you, press the contractors for the most accurate representation, and review things that might have a long-term impact on the value of your property. They are on your side, and want you to feel at home in the community that you are investing in.
Help you review the important paperwork and contract.
If you already have experience in purchasing a home, you know how hefty the paperwork and contract can be. When buying New Home Construction, this process is spread out a little more which can make way for a lot of error. It is imperative to have an agent who can help you understand aspects of the contract like floor plans, budgets, labor compensation, deadlines, requests for changes, and most importantly, timelines for completion. Your agent is experienced in this department and will make sure that you are getting delivered everything you promised.
Assist with negotiations on your behalf.
Having an experienced and strong negotiator on your side is another huge value of having an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent. Once you have communicated your idea of your perfect home, your agent will make sure that your voice is being communicated properly. Your agent understands the true value of the deal underneath the glamour, so they can accurately assess whether buying is the right option. They understand the builder’s motives and is capable of negotiating the deal to your benefit.
