Why should I use a REALTORS® when the builder has sales staff?

Excellent Question! Many builders have sales staff to help you with the purchase of a new construction home.  The sales staff represent the builder and their interest in the agreement of purchase and sale, not yours. At Builds by the Bay our team of REALTORS® have worked with many area Builders. We are well versed on what you can and cannot expect from the builder. The new home construction build process can be a challenge. For instance, there is no negotiating off the list price. Unless there is an incentive being offered,  upgrade prices are set as well. Many builders offer a fee to an agent who brings in a purchaser so it is important that  you take advantage of having an advocate for your purchase!
