Why You Need REALTOR Representation When Purchasing a Home From a BuilderWhy You Need REALTOR Representation When Purchasing a Home From a Builder

Over 50% of our Buyer contracts are with builders. I have represented many clients with builders and know how to preserve your interests and negotiate in your behalf with them. Builders specifically encourage and compensate Buyer AGENTS to assist clients in their communities. Builders realize that most Buyers shop both the resale market and other builders with their Buyer representative, and therefore plan on AGENT compensation as a part of their overall marketing program. However, builders will not encourage a Buyer to use the services of an AGENT for the fear of losing the Buyer to other homes or builders suggested by the AGENT.

  1. BUILDER PRICES ARE NOT DISCOUNTED IF THERE IS NO AGENT. Nor do options become free without your agent. IF THERE IS NO AGENT, THE COMMISSION (built into the overall pricing) IS INSTEAD DISTRIBUTED INTERNALLY within the builder organization WHICH DOES NOT BENEFIT YOU. (Builders do not discount prices in order to avoid driving prices down based on ongoing lender appraisals to protect themselves as well as to protect values for subsequent new home buyers, and to protect for buyers who later become sellers.) An agent who has shown other homes (resale and/or new) and given you advice deserves compensation for past work and for the future services identified in #6 below.
  2. Builder salesperson is employed by builder – Camille Ruiz represents and your interests only.
  3. Builders use their own contract with clauses written to protect the builder.
  4. You are on builder's turf! Builder sets the rules.
  5. Builder may limit the lenders available for financing if builder assists in closing costs.
  6. As your representative I can:
    • Compare resales with the Reputation, Quality & Warranties of different builders
           
      FIND BEST VALUE

    • Give builder employee  my card, if available
    • Do not sign anything - even a "harmless" visitor registration book/customer survey/etc
