When purchasing new construction home, one of the largest investments you will probably make in your lifetime, bring a qualified, experienced buyer representative with you on your first visit to the development.
The builder posts a sign that notifies you that if you enter the models without your own buyers agent signing you in on your first visit, you forfeit your buyer representation rights.
If you forfeit your buyer representation rights and decide to purchase a new home, you negotiate directly with the builder, who has highly skilled sales people that look out for his own interests, not yours.
The sales representatives that work in the builder sales office receive directions to sell certain homes in inventory and as employees may receive bonuses for looking out for their employers best interests, not yours.
I know the builders background, which allows you to gain valuable insight into the builders reputation; resale considerations; popular floor plans, inventory and square footage compared to other builders; and the best buyer incentives that may or may not be shared with you if you are on your own. I help you be get all the details and look out for your best interests so you can make informed decisions.
Benefit by having me as your Elite Buyers Agent
Some home buyers mistakenly think they can negotiate a saving on the price of their home equal to a buyer representatives commission if they proceed on their own. Most builders set up a separate fund to pay commissions, so they do not discount the homes price if you forego buyer representation. The builders sales representatives gain incentive to convince you to go without buyer representation since they may receive this amount as a bonus.
Experience a Smooth, Stress-Free Buying Process
As an objective third party, I will represent you, lead you through a smooth buying process and reduce your stress levels. I encourage you to ask questions or share concerns throughout the entire process. My services to you are FREE. The builder pays my fee just as the seller pays my fee on resale home through seller listing agreement.
When purchasing a new construction home, I will supply you with all the information to make informed decisions.
Some builders will allow us to negotiate a better purchase price and write the offer. Without buyer representation, most builders refuse to negotiate, and their sales representatives claim a bonus.
I will help you choose upgrades that add resale value to your home. My experience helps us to negotiate the best value on the upgrades you select or I will suggest another home builder who includes these upgrades in the purchase price.
Although builders offer financing incentives, I will protect your financial interests by analyzing these incentives to make sure they offer the best value for you. At times, I can get you the lender you want while including the builder’s incentives.
As the construction process progresses, I monitor contract dates, follow the home building process and voice any concerns or deal with builder delays that arise as part of the process. Before closing, I encourage you to hire a licensed Arizona home inspector to perform a thorough inspection of your new home to identify and resolve problems.
I check final closing statements to verify their accuracy and dispute incorrect or additional fees. I make sure that your closing runs smoothly and on time to save you from any stress or unpleasant surprises.
