Prescott, AZ and Prescott Valley, AZ are growing at a tremendous pace. Home builders are marketing directly to consumers and most are offering incentives to buy directly from them. You have to stop a moment and ask yourself why a home builder would try so desperately to sell you a home without your using a Realtor®.
What are the pros and cons in this situation? Who should you trust, the builder’s rep or a Realtor®? Am I really getting everything I paid for?
These are just a few of the questions you should consider when buying a new construction home. When looking at a home offered directly by Prescott, Prescott Valley or Chino Valley home builder, remember the builder’s interest is represented and protected by their onsite agent (who is usually a licensed real estate agent). This person’s only responsibility is to earn the builder more money by selling new construction at the highest price possible. This person solely represents the builder and is in no way on your side. Their salary (or commission) comes directly from the builder and they earn more money if they sell you property above market price or even with fewer included amenities.
