Now that the real estate market has rebounded - new construction is
everywhere you look in the Tampa Bay area - especially in New Tampa and Wesley Chapel! Many times buyers don't realize they can have a buyer's agent help them with a new construction purchase. They just assume that new construction is different from buying a resale - but it's not really. Just because something is brand new - doesn't mean it's problem free. Mistakes in construction can happen and having an agent who represents only them - not the builder too - can be invaluable, especially once the deal has closed and a problem pops up. And since the seller typically pays the commission, it costs a buyer nothing to have representation. In addition, a real estate professional can advise about
the different builders in the area and the quality of the product. If someone has relocated to a new community, a buyer's agent can tell them about the area and provide information on schools, hospitals, and future improvements. Most importantly, an agent can tell a buyer what the market value is in an area so that they don't over-build for the neighborhood. If someone is considering building, they should contact a local agent - it will make building their dream home that much easier.
