Building New Construction with a Builder
Buyers often ask, "Why they need a Realtor® when building a new home"?
As your Realtor®, we will assist you with choosing the right community, floor plan and home site that will best fit your needs. We will also prepare a market analysis that will show the value of the other homes in the community in comparison to the new construction homes to ensure that you are not paying too much for your new home. The site agent that works in the builder's model home office works directly for the builder and will not be representing you as the buyer in the purchase. We act as your liaison with the builder to ensure that your building process goes smoothly. We will also compare home designs, features/upgrades with competing builders to ensure that you are receiving the best value possible.
During the building process our services include the following:
- Review the builder's contract before you sign
- Assist with the design planning of your new home including helping you choose the right community, builder, floor plan, and home site that will best fit your needs
- Attend the builder's construction and walk-through meetings with you
- Negotiate price and incentives with the builder on your behalf
- Review all closing documents and closing settlement statement prior to you signing at closing
- Attend the closing with you
- We have previously worked with many of the new home builders in the Jacksonville/St. Johns area and are familiar with their policies and workmanship which can benefit you with your building process
We have worked with many buyers that have built new homes and have the knowledge, expertise and experience needed to assist buyers with the building of a new home. We have personally built many new homes for ourselves in the St. Johns area over the past years and can pass on useful information to our buyers about the building process.
We can also extend our services to buyers that are purchasing a builder's ready inventory spec home. Our services above would be included.
We do not charge buyers for using our real estate services and for Realtor® representation; the builder would compensate us.
