Buying a New Construction Home? Work with an Experienced Real Estate Professional

July 5th, 2017 · 1 Comment


Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty Offers Expert Representation. Realtor Priscilla Johnson, a new construction home sales specialist, often visits construction sites on behalf of her customers.

The appeal of new construction – a brand new home which your family is the first to own – is undeniable. According to a Trulia report, two in five Americans prefer new homes to existing homes.

New homes and communities are plentiful throughout Northeast Florida and most builders have sales offices set up and equipped to assist prospective buyers. It’s no surprise that many in the process of buying a new construction home wonder if they need or should use a Realtor.

Buying a brand new, never-lived-in home is exciting, but don’t go it alone. That’s the advice of the real estate specialists at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty.

“The biggest misconception – buyers assume they can get a better deal on their purchase and save money on a commission if they purchase without a Realtor. That’s not how it works,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty Realtor Priscilla Johnson, a top producer based in the company’s Ponte Vedra/Nocatee office and a former builder site agent. “The buyer is not going to be able to negotiate the cost of commission. The buyer who purchases a new construction home without a Realtor’s representation has nothing to gain and plenty to lose.”

Purchasing a new construction home can be more complicated than purchasing a pre-owned or re-sale home. Real estate professionals like Johnson can provide expert assistance while helping customers navigate the process with their best interests in mind.
