Agents Have Superior Negotiating Skills
It’s your agent’s job to get you the best possible price for your home, or to see to it that you get the best possible deal on the property you want to buy.
Agents are trained to negotiate well, if only from experience.
They know what normally works and what does not.
Why use a realtor when buying a new home?
You can make a new construction home your own. One of the benefits of working with a new construction Realtor is that they can negotiate the customizations with the builder on your behalf. This can help ensure you get a fair price for your upgrades and alterations to the floor plan.
Is it better to buy a house without a realtor?
Purchasing a new home doesn’t require the assistance of a real estate agent. You can complete the purchase without the help of a realtor. You will be able to view homes and attend open houses without the company of a realtor. Forgoing a partnership with a realtor can save you a significant amount of money.
Should I use a real estate agent?
Agent can give a professional opinion of how much a home is worth. But the agent has an incentive to inflate the price, because the more you pay for the house, the bigger commission they make. With no agent the seller won’t have to pay that commission, so you might be able to negotiate a lower price with the seller.
