First and most importantly, the Agent you meet at a model home represents the Builder.  That is important to you as a Buyer, because that Agent is working with the Builder to sell his/her homes and is working on behalf of AND in the best interest of the Builder – not you, the Buyer. 

You should want your own Realtor to represent your interests.  The process of buying new construction can be complex and includes such things as negotiating, understanding pricing of upgrades, getting credit/allowances for items you purchase separately, timely delivery of your purchased items, scheduling walk-throughs and inspections and decisions on fixtures, finishes and floor plans.  Realtors understand the new construction process and how to navigate through. 

Your Realtor will also know when to list your current home for sale, so that the timing is close to when you will have the Certificate of Occupancy on your newly built home and whether to offer post-closing occupancy. 

If you list your home with the Builder’s Realtor, that agent is working for and looking out for the best interest of the Builder.  For more information on new construction representation please contact me at 586-484-6781.
