By contacting Patti, she can be your representative to help you through the builders’ contract, negotiations, follow-up, walk-throughs and closing. She can take pictures for you, help with any construction questions and make cost saving suggestions during the building period. This does not cost you anything and you gain the knowledge and experience from a veteran On-Site Sales Agent with 21 years of Builder experience. Builders do not negotiate “more” if you don’t have a Realtor. In other words, skipping your right to Realtor representation may even cost you in mistakes or missed opportunities. The reason for this is because things are done differently than in the past. Most builders set up a Marketing budget and include the commission they pay Realtors in that budget. The cost of TV and Print media is expensive, the Builders have found out transferring some of their budget dollars to Realtors becomes much more productive for them.
