Benefits To Using Brittany Leighton As Your Realtor
I am always important in every home purchase.
Think construction delays, permit issues, and financing concerns. As n experienced buyer's agent I help you navigate all of these sticky situations. There is no cost to you, to utilize me for a new construction home purchase.
I help you review your contract
Even if you have purchased a new home before, the contract for new construction is a different set of rules, I will help to make sure you understand everything, from floor plans to earnest money requirements, deadlines for requesting changes, and timelines for completion.
I can negotiate additional upgrades for you
Want upgraded counters or appliances in that new home, but do not want to pay full retail value? I will help you with all those extra perks, amenities, and upgrades. We can often negotiate with the builder on things like paint color or even the style of garage door, especially if the housing development is in the beginning stages. Homebuilders will offer you endless options for finishes and upgrades, and it's easy to get overwhelmed. Having me on your team can recommend the upgrades that will get you the most bang for your buck in resale value, suggest finishes that might be cheaper to do on your own, and help you avoid over-improving, which can jeopardize your appraisal before closing; creating a win!
I can recommend financing for you
A builder typically will have a "preferred" lender that it will try to steer you to, but I will help make sure that you're getting the mortgage that works best for your situation. Shopping around is always wise, and you don't want the builder's agent pressuring you into using their suggested professional unless it's right for you.
I will oversee your home inspection
Tempted to forgo a home inspection in new construction? Don't do it. The number and severity of new-home defects often rival resale home problems. The builder's agent is unlikely to push for or offer up an inspection, so it's up to you and me to make it happen.
