Do You Need It? Absolutely
One of the best tools available to a home buyer here in Charlotte NC is a professional Realtor. We are an important cog in the sales process. Builders count on us to provide potential buyers with all the facts and pertinent information about a home. That includes any special offers and discounts that a builder is offering. If for some reason you attempt to avoid involving a Realtor, you may miss out on these promotions.
Realtors provide a valuable service to builders as well as buyers. We are well prepared to handle all the details of a complicated transaction including information about financing. We are authorized to pass on all available builder discounts. Our experience allows us to walk potential buyers through the process and point out the features and benefits of the homes we show. As Realtors, that is what we do. On the other hand, many on-site sales personnel much prefer the excitement of the sale over the details of the paperwork that accompanies every sale. They much prefer to sell to the next customer and not get bogged down with the details.
The idea that you can save money by not using a Realtor is a popular misconception. If a home is sold directly by an on site sales person instead of a Realtor, the builder keeps any commission that we would have earned. He does not pass it on to the home buyer. This is the way real estate transactions average out in the long run. The cost to homebuyers is the same whether they use a realtor or a builder’s direct sales agent. Why not put your deal in the hands of a professional Realtor?
So, for your own comfort and convenience, a Realtor will add a level of professionalism to the sale and potentially save you some money. Builders are very comfortable using our services. They know the job will be handled correctly. As Realtors, we are prepared to answer all your questions and make certain that the sale goes through smoothly and professionally.
