Today, we’re excited to be joined by special guest Steve Becht, the sales manager for CreekStone Homes, to talk about whether people need to work with an agent when buying a new home. 

According to Steve, working with an agent when purchasing new construction isn’t a necessity, but it is highly preferable. People on the build site are working on behalf of the builder. If you aren’t working with an agent of your own when you purchase new construction, you aren’t being represented in the transaction. 

Involving an agent will make the transaction move more quickly and more smoothly. Contrary to what some may think, buyers do not get a better deal by forgoing representation and working directly with those who are representing the builder. 

“Working with an agent when purchasing new construction isn’t a necessity, but it is highly preferable.”

In fact, the builder and the professionals who represent them tend to prefer working with buyers who are represented. 

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
