1.) Do I need a real estate agent to represent me? Why?
Yes, Why, simple the agent in the sales office represents the builder, yes, that nice person Only represents the interest of the Seller in your case the builder.
2.) Does each builder have a sales person in their model?
Yes, The sales associate signing the contract for sale and purchase represents the seller exclusively in connection to the transaction and DOES NOT REPRESENT OR PURPORT TO REPRESENT YOU THE BUYER. Who is looking out FOR YOUR INTERESTS?
in simple terms this means the very hospitable sales person is working exclusively for the seller or builder. The tour of the model with chocolate chip cookies and soft drinks and toys for your kids to stay busy,they are not in any way there to represent you the buyer.
3.) I don’t want to pay the extra money for a real estate agent services to assist me.
The commission for services by any real estate agent is PAID COMPLETELY by the builder/seller. You will never be charged a fee for bringing your own representation.
4.) The sales person can do everything a real estate agent can do for me. NOT TRUE!
Do you have a house to sell? You need a real estate agent with the experience, that can coordinate and assist the builder/seller on your house selling, maybe even talking about the different types of financing that may assist you.
Don’t have a house to sell? I have in the past negotiated on behalf of the buyer significant reduction in sales price or increased incentives for my clients on new home purchases.
