Should I Use A Realtor When Buying A Home From A Builder?

The homebuying process can take many forms and can vary based on the type of home you’re looking to purchase. One of the most common questions we get from potential home buyers is whether you should use a RealtorⓇ when buying a home from a builder.


The short answer is, yes!


Here’s what we can help with that your builder representative might not be able to:

1. Knowing When To Sell Your Home

If you already own a home, knowing when to sell your home in preparation for moving into your new home isn’t always simple. It’s important to plan when you put it on the market and when your home should be sold in relation to the completion of your new home, all of which we can help with. We can also, of course, help you with selling your home by putting it on the market, marketing it, and holding open houses to get it sold in time for your new home to be ready.

2. Knowing Which Features To Invest In

When you’re building a new home, you’ll be given a wide range of options for items and features to invest in. While these features are a matter of personal preference, they’re also an important part of your new home’s future resale value.


Your RealtorⓇ can help you choose the features that will be attractive to homebuyers in the future, whether it’s the number of bathrooms, how you finish the basement or the type of countertops you choose, your RealtorⓇ can help you navigate all of features, upgrades and extras on offer.
