Do You Really Need a Realtor to Buy New Construction?


There are many new developments in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Ben & Mayra have a list of all the new communities in the area. Why use a Realtor to buy new construction?
1.- It does not cost you a penny to use a Realtor when buying a home in Florida, the seller or the builder pays our commission, and the price you pay for the new home will always be the same regardless if you use a Realtor or not to represent you.
2.- The sales person at the sales office represents the builder, not you, the buyer.
3.- Ben & Mayra Stern can give you very objective advice about the home you are thinking of buying, the community, and the city.
4.- We will help you out when selecting a lot that will be better for re-sale value, and a model that will be more desirable and easier to sell when the time comes.
5.- We will give you the pros and cons about buying new construction vs. resale properties.We can show you resale homes too so that you can compare them with the new homes.
6.- We will assist you when picking out upgrades that will keep their value better for resale purposes.
7.- We can give you information about surrounding schools, houses of worship, businesses, parks, restaurants, etc.
8.- We can assist you by recommending licensed inspectors, designers, attorneys, etc. who can give you advice throughout the many faces of pre-construction.
9.- We will be there throughout the whole process from beginning to end, which may save you thousands dollars in costly mistakes.
