Why Use an Agent for New Construction?

When building a new construction home, one thing that some people may overlook is the concept of using a Realtor during the process. There are huge benefits that come with having an advocate in your corner looking out for YOUR best interests. In a new construction scenario when the builder is represented by an agent, if the future homeowner does not have their agent by their side, they are immediately at a negotiating disadvantage. An experienced agent can also keep a builder on track from a timeline standpoint and can act as an intermediary between the homeowner and the builder when there are difficult discussions that need to be had. As much as everyone wants the new construction process to be dream scenario without any issues or problems, we all know people who have bad experiences.

At Patriot Realty we have worked with countless builders in all corners of the Twin Cities and have the expertise to help you through all phases of the process. Because of this, we can help you through the decision making process to ensure that you get the details that you want in your new home, while also making selections for the home that will keep future resale value in mind. One thing that you might find interesting is that most builders in new construction developments have already calculated in an expense to pay our fee; if you don’t have representation then that fee likely ends up right on the builder’s bottom line. Ultimately it is important to have someone experienced on your side protecting you and simplifying the process for you. We would love to help and hope that you reach out to Patriot Realty if you are looking to build or buy new construction!
