Your own agent that represents you will negotiate better and get incentives that their salespeople claim you won’t get if you have your own agent. In fact, by your agent knowing of all the deals and incentives across the county they can use it to leverage the development to offer the same things.
Your agent will negotiate move in times, finance incentive deals, upgrades and keep things from falling behind on the promise dates they give.
Have a home to sell? Then your agent is crucial. The new home developer is laser focused on their homes. They don’t know your home, floorplan, community, school districts, what others have sold for and why and how to use all of that to get you more. They use 3D marketing to attract buyers too busy to go to open houses or relocators too far away to see it in person.
