Do I need a real estate agent for new construction?
Yes, it is to your advantage to work with an experienced REALTOR® as you tour the Parade of Homes or build a brand-new home. Your agent will be your best resource and advocate throughout your home search. They can explain the steps and timeline, advise on key decisions, and help with negotiations or other challenges that may arise.
When starting your Parade of Homes experience with your REALTOR® that is experienced in new construction, you can rest assured that you have an expert guiding you as you navigate the unique path of a new construction purchase. And if you don’t bring your REALTOR® with you on the Parade of Homes, you’ll still want to mention to representatives at the properties and online that you are already working with an agent. Be sure to give your agent’s name upfront.
Partnering with a local REALTOR® may be especially beneficial this year, as your agent will advocate for you during COVID-19. Not only will your agent understand the norms of today’s unique housing market, but will also be current with important safety procedures throughout the purchase process.
