I’m buying a newly constructed home – should I use a Realtor?

When you are buying new construction, chances are the builder will have a Realtor representing him to help him market the home and to take care of all the details while he or she concentrates on building the home. That Realtor represents the builder’s interests primarily but could also become a dual agent and represent a buyer too. This is ok but what you really want is your own Realtor who is only representing you.

One of the key advantages to having your own Realtor is that your agent will negotiate on

your behalf and maintain the most powerful tool a buyer has: The willingness to impartially advise a buyer to walk away from a deal that is not in the buyer’s interests. That negotiating tactic may not be as effective when a Realtor is representing both the buyer and seller.

Plus it doesn’t cost you anymore to have your very own Realtor.
