Purchasing a home can be overwhelming. Building a home can be more so, with all the extra decisions that go along with choosing flooring, cabinets, paint colors and light fixtures. Some people believe that they don't need a Realtor to help them purchase a to-be-built home. That's not the case! You should always have a licensed Realtor represent you in any real estate transaction. Having a competent real estate agent in your corner will ensure that your interests are put above all others in the transaction. Including the builder and their sales agent.
