Hi There,

Before you do anything, be sure you have a buyer's agent who can walk you through the builder's contract and help you through each step of the transaction. The answers to your questions are all in the contract, you just have to know where to look.

Builder's contracts can be complicated, and they would love to have a buyer sign on the dotted line who doesn't know what they're signing; it's just easier for them. I find it unethical not to ask buyers if they have representation, but few do. Please get an agent to represent you. It doesn't cost you a penny, and you'll have someone on your side negotiating on your behalf every step of the way.

Warm Regards,

Hi Vane,
It really depends on how your contract is written. Are you being represented by an agent? There is a common fallacy that when purchasing new construction, you don't need an agent. But you absolutely do.The builder has agents and rightfully so. You are still engaging in a large transaction for real property and need someone to be your advocate and help you in instances like this.


Thanks!
