Why You Should Work with A Realtor When Building a New Home | Zandra Real Estate

Real estate is booming along the First Coast. If you are planning to build a new home, a Realtor with experience in new home construction can help you through this process and help you make the best investment decisions for your unique situation. Here’s a few ways your Realtor can assist you through the process of building a new home:

Find the Right Builder

There are a number of new home builders in our area which can make it difficult to know which one is the best for your wants and needs. Someone with hands-on experience with these builders can provide you with incredible insight. Which builders are within your budget? What areas does the builder offer homes? Which builder has the best floor plans based on the type of home you are looking to own? When you work with a Realtor, they will provide the unbiased information you need to make a decision that’s best for you.

Choosing the Ideal Lot

Location is everything, especially when investing in real estate. If you’ve already explored a few locations, you may only be thinking about the plot of land itself and its immediate surroundings. A Realtor will go even further. What’s likely to happen on the property behind your home? Is the value of this area likely to increase in the future? A Realtor can share insights on which lot will best suit your home vision while providing lasting value.  

Providing the Inside Scoop on Buyer Incentives

Some builders offer incentives to encourage people to buy in a particular area. They may offer to pay closing costs, for example. Others may offer upgrades to interior finishes such as stainless steel appliances, wood flooring, and more. At times, there is fine print that buyers need to be aware of in order to qualify for such incentives. With a Realtor on your side, they can help negotiate these deals to ensure your home is exactly as you want it.

Supply You with Key Community Information

Knowing the local community you plan to buy in is also important. An experienced agent will take into account your lifestyle as well as the market and can match you with the right community. They will also give you key insights to each area so you can make the best informed decision on where to build.
