Why have a Realtor when building a home

Why you should have a realtor when you’re building a home

Why you should have a realtor when you’re building a home

If you are thinking of building a home, hire a real estate agent to represent you!

Shelly Walters, Shelly Walters Realty Group, shares a few reasons why:

-They know the market and can make sure you work with reputable companies
-Builder Rep at the model works for the builder not the buyer
-The amount of commission for the sale is already in the price it can not be negotiated out
-They have relationships with the builders and know what to ask for to be included in the deal
-Will be your advocate during the process especially if things start to go bad

-You need to do an inspection!
-The price you see is the price the home will cost you.
-You can negotiate the price if you do not have an agent working for you
-You have to use their lender

If you sign in at the model, make sure you put down your Realtor’s name or at least keep that option open when you sign in.

Colder and quiet rest of the week

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A good 20° swing Wednesday morning with temperatures in the lower to mid-20s this morning with feel-like temperatures in the teens. It will be a clear start then brighter heading through the rest of the morning and the afternoon! Sunshine won’t help us out too much in terms of temperatures today. Daytime highs should warm to the upper 30s. Wednesday night will be a cold one with lows in the lower 20s with a partly cloudy sky.

Thursday will be another cold one with highs struggling to reach 30°. It’ll still be a bright one with a mostly to partly sunny sky. A slow warming trend will start Friday with highs warming to the upper 30s with a mixture of sun and clouds.

This weekend will be split with a chance of showers arriving late in the day Sunday. Highs will continue to warm to the mid-40s Saturday with a partly sunny sky. Clouds return Sunday with showers later in the evening and overnight. Rain will continue through Monday. Tuesday looks to be a dry day for now then showers should return by midweek with highs in the mid 40s.
