Buyers agentWhile real estate law varies from state-to-state, generally, when purchasing a newly constructed home, it can be a good idea to have a buyer's agent. In many states, that is the buyers agent plays when buyers purchase newly constructed homes. The main benefit of buyer agency is that buyers can be assured that they have their own real estate agent who is looking out for that buyer's best interests. Additionally, this service is generally "free" to the buyer, because the buyer agent's commission is typically paid as part of the overall seller's commission. And, for newly constructed homes, the price buyers pay when they work with an agent, and the price they pay if not working with an agent, is generally the same. You maybe paying too much if you don't have an agent on your side.September 17 2010 - Charlotte1YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
