Search NEW Home Builds in The East Valley
With historically low inventory in today’s market, more buyers are considering new home construction.
Buying new construction is different than buying a home for resale, and smart buyers are turning to seasoned agents to ensure the best experience from seeing the models to moving in.
Smart Buyers Are Represented.
Whether you go to that first visit to the models with an agent or not, you’ll work with a real estate agent. The problem is, the agent at the models is the builder’s agent, and they represent the builder’s best interest, not yours.
Smart buyers bring their own agent to ensure that their best interest is considered. They bring an agent with experience selling retail homes in that area, so they know how to not only protect your best interests on the purchase, but how to set you up for success when you sell the home in the future.
Smart Buyers See the New Home Purchase as an Investment.
Smart buyers are not just buying a place to stay, but considering the long-term investment of the purchase. The location, orientation, and size of the lot can impact the resale value of a home and how it compares to other properties.
“The builder’s agent has a responsibility to sell every lot in the development,” said Kenny Klaus. “We can help you decide if your home’s location makes sense for the time you’re in the home, and how that will impact your resale value in the future.”
Smart Buyers Investigate Upgrades
Model homes usually present the home with upgrades that don’t come standard. An experienced buyer agent will help smart buyers consider all upgrades and evaluate if it makes sense now or later, and give input as to how the upgrades can impact resale.

The builder typically pays all the commission fees for both the buyer’s agent and their own. Some buyers hope to get a discount on a new home by working directly with the builder’s agent with the hope that, by saving the builder commission costs, this will lower the price of the home. However, these fees are generally figured into the price of the home whether you have your own agent or not.
