New Construction Real Estate in Lewis Center
Many builders will not allow you to hire your own agent if you wander into the new homes sales office without representation. If you visit a builder's home construction site without an agent, you might be hosed, because later the builder could refuse to pay your agent. Let your agent introduce you to the builder, and you're covered.
- The builder's sales agents are paid to represent the builder, regardless of what they may tell you. Many will use high-pressure tactics to persuade you to sign the contract. Due to the high volume nature of brand new home sales, lots of builder's agents are paid less than a traditional commission; some earn a salary plus incentives, so turnover is important to their livelihood.
- Hire a buyer's agent to represent you. Most of the time, the builder will pay your agent, but sometimes the responsibility for the agent's fee is open for discussion. Builders generally advertise how much they will pay a buyer's agent. Rarely do they refuse, unless inventory is low and demand high. Even if you have to directly pay your agent, you can probably add that fee to the sales price, and it would be worth it because a good negotiating buyer's agent can save you thousands more than the commission.
- Your own agent will represent you and be your fiduciary, and he or she is required to disclose the positives as well as the negatives about the transaction. Builder's agents don't discuss drawbacks. Your own realtor is required to put your interests first.
- If your contract contains a contingency to sell your existing home before buying, hire your own listing agent to list your home. Be aware that buying before selling is not always in your best interest, because hard bargaining often goes out the window when you've emotionally moved out of your home.

Jennifer was a pleasure to have as our real estate agent. She helped us a lot with buying our first home. We didn't know a lot about house purchasing but it wasn't a big hassle for us with Jennifer. She never left any questions unanswered and she promptly answered all our questions regardless of the time. Jennifer's friendly manner and knowledge of her business has helped feel comfortable during this process. She helped us to find movers and home inspectors as well.
We would highly recommend Jennifer and Fathom Realty to anyone who wishes to buy or sell a house.

Selling our home was very overwhelming. Jennifer was a asset in helping us prepare our home for sale, and getting us over the asking price! We decided to build new, with her construction experience the negotiations with the builder went very smoothly. I couldn’t have chosen a better realtor!!
