I like to take a few days each week to drive around to visit new home builders in the area. Looking at current floor plans and communities helps me stay abreast of what is happening with the real estate market.
During one of my drives through a new home community, I saw a couple out for an evening stroll. I rolled down my window, introduced myself and asked them if they would tell me a little a little bit about their purchase experience.
They both agreed, and agreed,
However they admitted they were simultaneously frustrated.
I asked, “Why?”
They proceeded to tell me that even though they closed escrow in the spring (it was now 6 months later) there were some construction items that has not been addressed.
They voiced their frustration to their construction manager who just seemed more interested in building new homes than fixing these 6-month-old problems.
They had emailed the builder multiple lists trying to get repairs done. Sometimes one thing would be addressed, but they just couldn’t seem to get done. They described a constant struggle of trying to schedule appointments with contractors to come finish the work. These unfortunate souls had often carved out valuable time in the middle of their workdays for appointments with contractors that never showed up. RUDE!
After hearing them vent their frustration about this new homebuilder I asked them if they had a Realtor when they made their new home purchase. They reluctantly replied. . . “no.”
They had not used the services of a real estate agent, but wished they had. They admitted hindsight is When I’m your Realtor on new construction not only will I be at all walk through inspections with you, I STRONGLY recommend you employ the services of a professional 3rd party inspector who does NOT work for the builder. You need your own advocates in this HUGE purchase. 20/20.
As your Realtor it is my job to put your interests first and foremost. If the builder asks you to go to the title company and close escrow on your new home I will strongly advise you to not accept the home until you are that the construction is complete!

People often ask me about home prices, but rarely do they ask about interest rates.
