Why You Need To Use A Realtor When Buying New Construction

new constructionBuilder Agents work for the Builder – their job is to protect the Builders best interests and once you call or check in and register, you’re stuck with them – they won’t let you use a Realtor past that point.  Your Personal Realtor and Trusted Advisor has a fiduciary responsibility to protect your best interests.  It’s as simple as that.  But there are other critical reasons to use a Realtor as well…

  • Builders let us know when there are new releases, specials, discounts, etc. such as this special VIP invite at Iriana at Gale Ranch.  They like us because we help them sell their homes faster.  Click HERE to visit the development website.


  • 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 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.

New home construction is ramping up and new construction is usually part of the equation when searching for a home in the East Bay.  Remember to contact your Realtor first so they can register you and start helping you and protecting your best interests from the start.
