People get so excited when buying a brand new home or a custom home specifically built to fit their needs. Picking paint colors and selecting appliances and special features makes buying a custom built home appealing and in our current real estate market makes perfect sense, these days custom built homes are quite affordable and sometimes a better value than a resale. In many cases the builder offers incentives and upgrades to homes they want to sell.
In Central Florida there is plenty of vacant land and in beautiful communities. For some it was a dream but today with current economic conditions buying a custom built home has never been more affordable.
A builder can assist you in many aspects of building a new home but the problem is the builder looks our for their best interest. Nothing wrong with that, they are trying to sell custom built homes and as a real estate agent | REALTOR we represent your best interest. So you if you a homebuyer who walks into various builders looking for a custom built home, chances are if you went without a real estate agent or forgot to mention your agents name, you'll have to go it alone. That means you would be buying a custom built home without representation.
Not only should you work with a real estate when buying new construction or a custom built home but make sure the agent you work with is experienced in selling a custom built home directly from the builder. There is much more involved rather than fair market homes for sale, you must consider the latest building codes, understand all the inspections as well as city and county approvals .
If you are in the market to buy a custom built home make sure and hire the right real estate agent | REALTOR and make sure they work for you. Gary Berkson has over 30 years experience in selling real estate. Contact Gary Berkson today.
