Things You Should Know About New Construction
Are you one of the many interested in brand new construction? As an historic city Philadelphia is replete with wonderful and unique homes that can be well over 100 years in age. Along with charm and character can come continual and costly maintenance and repair. Typically these homes have sustained renovation after renovation and may not always be up to code. If you don't have the time, ability, or money for this type of project you may be biting off more than you can chew! For this reason new construction may be the answer.
There are many wonderful total re-habs as well as brand new construction in Center City. However, even though there may be a builder operated sales center it is still in your best interest to have Realtor representation. It is a misconception to think that you will be getting a better deal without a Realtor as the builder encourages Realtor participation in order to increase sales. Only an experienced Buyer's Agent will be able to assist in your negotiation, review the paperwork, and research pricing to make sure of what other Buyers have paid for the same type property.
Remember,The Builder's Agent Works For The Seller!
Please remember that you must be accompanied on your first visit to a sales center in order to be permitted to use an agent to protect your interests. This small mistake could have an adverse effect on one of the largest purchases of your life. Please call me at any time if you feel you may be visiting new properties and I will make sure you are properly registered.
