There is no additional cost to you for having a Realtor represent your interests. In fact, the buyer will usually save a substantial amount of money.
A builder usually includes a sales commission reserve in the marketing budget. This is because the majority of buyers are introduced to the builder by Realtors. If a buyer does not use the independent services of a Realtor, the builder will usually credit their salesperson with a higher commission or retain the savings.
- The builder salesperson is paid by the builder and represents the builder.
- A Realtor represents the buyer independently as the buyer advocate.
- Usually the builder salesperson will say that certain pricing is firm.
- A Realtor with experience can help the buyer negotiate better terms by using current market data.
- A Realtor can provide the buyer with objective and independent sources of information pertaining to contract review, construction, inspections, insurance, financing, title closing, etc.
