If you in the market to buy one of the new homes for sale in Chandler, you’ll first need to find a qualified real estate agent in Chandler to represent you and accompany you -- before you begin looking at model homes or visit a new home community/builder’s office. Typically, builders’ model homes are staffed by agents who work directly for and represent the builder. As a buyer, you also need an agent who represents YOUR best interests. Some builders will even refuse to work with your agent if he or she does not accompany you on your first visit. The reason behind all this is clear once you understand the dynamic between agents and sellers. First of all, builders like to know how much commission they will be paying on a sale upfront as this can sometimes affect their pricing strategies. Likewise, many builders have specific rules about how much commission they are willing to pay and they want to be able to discuss these rules with the agent before any deals are made.
Why You Need an Agent For New Homes for Sale in Chandler
Some new home buyers are under the misconception that if they choose not to use a real estate agent in Chandler for their new-home purchase, the builder will reduce the price of the home by the amount of the commission they would have otherwise paid to the buyers' agent. However, this is rarely the case as builders will seldom reduce their prices for not paying a commission because it sets the comparison price for future home sales in that community. Buyers will find that an experienced real estate agent in Chandler can provide value that surpasses the amount of money they could hope to save by eliminating a possible commission. Not to mention, a REALTOR® working on your behalf costs you absolutely nothing as their commission is paid by the new-home seller/builder. A real estate agent is there to advise you for FREE and has a responsibility and a duty to get you the best deal, the most favorable terms, and look out for your best interests. Without the representation of an experienced real estate agent in Chandler, you are at a severe disadvantage in contracts and negotiating with some new-home sellers.
