If you consider buying a new construction home, there’s a good chance you’ll question whether or not you even need to use a real estate agent. You might even wonder if there’s an advantage to not using a real estate agent…perhaps thinking you can get a lower price, or more upgrades thrown in, if the builder isn’t paying a real estate agent their commission. Or, you just might not give it any thought whatsoever, and stumble into buying your new construction home, without having your own real estate agent to represent you. So, do you need to use a real estate agent when buying new construction? Technically? No. Should you? Yes.
