Building a Home? 3 Reasons You Need a Real Estate Agent Too, Denton, Texas

Building a home can be incredibly exciting, especially if you like your builder. Although your builder’s real estate agent might be on hand and ready to help broker your home purchase, it is always a wise decision to have representation. Here are three reasons you need a real estate agent, even when building a home with a contractor you trust. 

Benefits of Working With Realtors® When Building

1. Represent Your Best Interests

You might like your builder, but ultimately they care more about their best interests. When it comes to making decisions, your builder might be more likely to make choices based on what fits their needs instead of your preferences. However, by hiring a real estate agent and talking with them about your wishes, you can have the representation you need to make sure you get what you want. 

2. Negotiate Extras 

During the build, your real estate agent can carefully evaluate pricing and progress, while arguing in your favor for extras. For instance, if you chose a laminate floor that you like, but other builds in your area have upgraded hardwood at no additional cost, your real estate could argue that you should pay less for the installed floors in your home. 

3. Handle Paperworkreal estate agent

There is a lot of paperwork when you are in the midst of building your home, so find a real estate agent who can work with you to take care of the process. In addition to simplifying the paperwork process for you, Realtors with experience in new builds can quickly spot issues with contracts, protecting you and streamlining the process.
