When to Call a Realtor

Homebuyers interested in purchasing an existing home usually call a Realtor. What if you plan to buy a new construction home in Veranda? Should you call a Realtor then? Absolutely. Realtors specialize in helping you get the home of your dreams — whether it’s already built or not. Here are the main reasons Realtors are invaluable:

They Can Help You Choose a Neighborhood

Realtors know there is more to buying a house than a great floor plan. Buyers want to live in the best neighborhood they can afford. Realtors spend a lot of time learning about schools, shopping, dining, parks and recreation. When it comes to master-planned communities, they know the amenities. Let your Realtor know what you must have, and they will find the best fit for your budget.

Speaking of Budgets

Knowledgeable real estate agents know how to get you the best home for your money. If you are shopping for a new construction home, they will be able to point you in the direction of builders offering floor plans in your price range. They can also tell you what options and upgrades will add value to your home. They might even be able to help you negotiate better pricing on the upgrades you really want.

They Keep It Simple

Buying a home can be a confusing process. There is so much to know and often not a lot of time to learn it all. Realtors already know how to navigate the home buying process. They can point you in the direction of the best lenders for you, discuss interest rates and recommend a home inspector. They can also help you figure out how much home you can afford and prioritize your list of “must-haves.”

They’ll Do the Paperwork

New construction homes require you to sign a contract. Understanding that contract is a job for your Realtor. If you have questions, they can answer them or at least point you in the direction of a person who knows the answers. They can also help you decode the closing documents.

They Want You to Be Happy

A builder’s sales representative works for the builder. Your Realtor works for you. They want you to be happy. They will work hard to ensure you love your new home. That means working with you and your builder to get you the home you want and keeping on top of the construction process.
