Patio homes for sale in Cincinnati area

If you're thinking about Cincinnati new construction homes, and in particular a Cincinnati new construction patio home, you might not realize it but you NEED a buyer's agent to help you through the process!

 

Here's why!

1.  The builder's rep works FOR the builder, NOT you.  They'll help you through the process, but at the end of the day never doubt who has their ultimate loyalty.

2.  A buyer's agent that works new construction knows ALL your choices.  That's especially critical with specialty homes like Cincinnati patio homes.  With a half dozen different names used by the builders, finding the RIGHT new construction patio home for your needs isn't as simple as a quick Internet search.

3.  A buyer's agent that routinely works with new construction knows the process.  What happens when and the "look out for this" things that can derail a smooth experience for you as a buyer.

4.  A buyer's agent understands the things that impact resale.  We know, your just now building a new home and we're already thinking about SELLING it?  But part of our role is to help provide you the information to make the best choices for today AND tomorrow.

5.  If there's a dispute with the builder, would you rather have that fight yourself or have someone who routinely handles disputes taking care of it for you?

6.  A buyer's agent can be an additional pair of eyes & ears, protecting your best interests.  And since we see 100s of homes every year, make suggestions that will help you enjoy your home even more!

7.  A buyer's agent doesn't cost you a dime extra!  Our fees are built into the builder's overhead.  And fact is the Cincinnati Home Builder's Association rules prohibit offering you a "better" deal or otherwise discouraging you from having your own representation.

Great post, Bill and Liz. I have an entire three part fold-over brochure I designed for new construction buyers explaining just this and touting my experience in new construction.

BLiz, I closed two new construction last month and another on Dec. 20th. My clients are over-joyed ... all have said "I could not have done this without you." Of course, my lending partner helps too ... that is what a great team is made of.

Nina, Great marketing!

Kathleen, I've got two new patio homes closing this month, one was supposed to be Monday but thanks to a lender delay moving to next Monday.  And another 3 in various stages for 2017.  It's a niche within a niche.

Frank, Definitely!

Most every day people don't understand what impacts resale to that level. People get paid for a reason.

That worked!  And I fixed a typo in the original post that I'd missed the first time :)

Liz and Bill Spear I linked to this post this morning.  I would also like to add something that recently came up with a new construction home.  

Builder's salesperson told buyers they could not add a pool screen to the backyard, which was on the lake.  They didn't want to "change" the look of the lake lots.  Buyers were unhappy until I went and read the docs.  They could absolutely have a pool screen; it just specified the type, height and color said screen must be.  Buyers would have walked had they not known this information.  Yet another reason why buyers need a Buyer's Agent when buying new construction.

Yes, it is definitely a great move on the part of buyers to use a buyer agent, regardless of the type of property they are purchasing! They need someone on their side.

Elyse, HUGE save on your part on behalf of your buyers!

Kat, The number of folks that think they should go it alone is disappointing.  They totally trust the builders rep to always have the buyer's best interests at heart, and unfortunately that's not always the case.
