Buying a New Home - Do I need an agentI am buying a sheahome in southern california. I went to one of their model homes and loved their model. I did not take a real estate with me during my first visit, so they won't pay the real estate agent if i want one to represent me. I am signing my purchase contract in few days without a real estate agent. I am not getting any upgrades and only buying a base house. That is where I heard buyers getting into trouble. Do I need a real estate agent for buying a new home with zero upgrades. The price looks about right for that area.
