Why You Should Use A Realtor® To Buy New Construction

New home construction is booming in the East Bay and most potential home buyers want to include new construction in their home search.

Here is a new release coming this Saturday, November 17th in Livermore – if you’re interested in looking at these homes or any others, you need to contact me before you call or register with the builder at the development. Read on to see why…


7 Brand New Single-Family Home Designs
1,786 – 2,013 sq. ft.
2 – 4 beds • 3.5 baths

$650,000 – $680,000

Why you need a Realtor® for new construction and why you need to contact us first!

  • It costs you nothing. The builder won’t charge you more if you use us and you won’t get a better price if you go it alone.
  • However, if you call or sign in at the development first, they will not let you go back and get a buyer’s agent…
  • We protect your best interests — the builder agent works for the builder – enough said.
  • We are better negotiators than you when it comes to real estate transactions.
  • We are up to date on incentives and specials with all the builders.
  • We will have suggestions and advice along the way, including on options, inspections, mortgages, construction issues…
  • We will be there even after the home closes. It is routine for issues to arise during the first year of a new home. Builder’s agents tend to forget a buyer’s name after the contract is signed.

The bottom line?  If you are looking to buy a home and are including new construction in your search, make absolutely sure you have your Realtor register you at each new development to protect your best interests.

BTW – NewHomeSource.com is best place to find new construction homes.
