Why buying a New Home might work better for you?
Will you get a better deal if you visit and register with a new builder community without Representation?***
*Disclaimer: Rebate is only available to the buyer if the builder pays a commission to the buyer’s agent.
**Accredited Buyer Representative.
*** Some buyers are convinced that they will get a better deal if they visit a new builder community, register with them and tell them, “No I don't have an agent”. The fact is that the builders pay buyers’ agents out of a marketing budget, commissions never go against the pre set recorded sales price or upgrades of the home. Builders make sure that, in any way, they will not affect their comps and their future sale prices. In order to personally get to the reality, but Before any Registration, just ask the Builder Rep if for not being represented by your agent they’ll give you a written statement that commits the builder to a reduction in price, or more upgrades, equivalent to the commission amount. Their answer will tell the FACT from the fictional MYTH, you will not receive a better deal on New Construction without an agent! Buyers with no representation, besides usually paying more, will most of the time get into the house and find about a zillion things they should have thought of (agent already knows) when it is too late.
The builder’s sales Rep won't volunteer anything that could be a benefit to the buyer. How many site agents (builder’s sales Reps) would encourage an unrepresented buyer to get a pre-drywall inspection? Recommend other areas and locations that will offer good value/appreciation?, recommend other reputable builders that offer great after-sale service?, review the builder contract/upgrades/closing date?, interpret the incentives?, look at the ultimate resale value?, etc…?, the reasons for hiring a professional are endless. It is absolutely foolish to enter in such a large investment without representation.
The builder’s reps know how to dazzle you with their product and sell you the one that makes them the most money rather than the one that you need or really want!!! An experienced REALTOR® can talk the talk and understand what is going on and make sure you are getting what YOU the buyer really needs at the right price. There is no better deal when a buyer goes straight to the builder. The builder has that commission already built into the price, and they are not going to take that off the price if there is no realtor involved.
“It is certainly a myth that an unrepresented buyer will get a better deal. What they might get, though, is the opportunity to miss out on some extras that the salesperson working for the builder may not divulge to the buyer.”

“I worked as a builder rep selling their homes for nine years. We did NOT give discounts to people who came in without agents. The builders paid a commission, and if the buyer was not represented that money would go to the developer to add to the marketing pot. The developer was separate from the builder group. Those buyers usually ended up paying a higher sales price than the buyers who had representation.”

“I am a builders rep and we do not adjust pricing or offer additional upgrades because they don't have an agent. We are fortunate that we don't have to negotiate to sell our homes. Yes, builders know how to sell!”
