Why Use a Realtor When Purchasing a New Construction Home?
The first misconception when purchasers are looking for a new construction is that they can save 3% by NOT using a realtor. This is not true. The commission on a new construction home has already been determined. And either the agent representing YOU will get 3% or the agent representing the BUILDER will get it all.
You need someone to represent your side. According to News Channel 4, a top national builder made more money from keeping the earnest money deposits of purchasers in the VA, DC & MD area than they did in building homes. Many customers lost their life savings because they did not know how to protect themselves in a contract. You need the expert advice and negotiating skills that only a Realtor can provide.
Golston Real Estate agents receive expert training on how to negotiate new construction contracts to get the most for our clients while ensuring financial protection throughout every stage of construction.
