I often get asked by clients whether or not I work with builders. The answer is yes, of course. Just about every builder in Edmond and North OKC works with Realtors. The big ones definitely do. So, what is a clients first step?
The first step is to talk to me, Zach Sikes with RE/MAX. I can help guide a client through the perils of the home building or buying process. The first thing I do is analyze your situation. What is your timeframe, budget, and requirements for your new home? If you need one immediately, most builders have market homes completely finished and ready to move in. You can of course build a custom built home from the ground up and customize everything to your liking, if you have the time. A great middle ground option is to find a home that is mostly completed, and pick your finishings.
Knowing most of the biulders in Edmond gives me an advantage. After talking with my clients, I can find out what their likes and dislikes are, and guide them to a builder that would best fit their needs. This wastes countless hours of digging on your own without the guarantee of finding accurate information. They can also browse my website, which lists all homes for sale in Edmond with no personal information required!
Finally, many potential buyers do not realize that using a Realtor on the buying side not only does not add any additional cost, but usually saves you money in the long run. The experience and expertise of a good Realtor is priceless. He or she can potentially save you from making costly mistakes.
So, the moral of the story is this: it's always better to contact a Realtor first! (like Zach Sikes with RE/MAX in Edmond, 509-0541)
