Should You Hire a Real Estate Agent for a New Construction Home?

New construction homes have a lot of benefits. There’s nothing better than walking into that new house and knowing you are the very first to live in it, knowing how incredibly clean it is, and the fact that you have a lot of options for customization. If you’re considering a construction home, how about you consider a Real Estate agent too? A lot of people say you don’t NEED one, which is true, but should you have one? We think so!

Why? Well first off, they’re free for you. You read me, totally free. Nothing from your pocket. See the agents get paid from the builder, so essentially you have this person really helping you out, doing a lot of the work for you, and you don’t have to pay them a dime. People think that this means your commission goes up, but this is also untrue. Commission comes directly from the builder, so you’ll be paying the same price either way, but with an agent you have help.

If you don’t think you need help, you may be right, but maybe not. You probably don’t NEED help, but wouldn’t it be convenient? You might be able to do the process alone, but buying a house is a daunting task. There’s a ton of people to deal with, and the builder’s on site sales agents are hard to work with. Wouldn’t having someone on your side, who knows the ins and outs of the industry, be easier and more profitable than trying to figure it out on your own?

Plus, there are tons of perks to having an agent! Such as price, you’ll always get the best price when you have an agent. Why? Well qualified Real Estate agents know how to negotiate. They also can get you pre-pricing and potentially discounts for lots before they’re released to the public. Agents can sometimes even get you free upgrades, like that pool you’ve always wanted. Things you would have had a hard time securing on your own.

Lastly, Real Estate agents are houses of information. A Real Estate agent can tell you loads of things you potentially had no idea about. They will know if someone is pushing you around, when you might think you’re getting a good deal. They will know little details that could potentially save you thousands of dollars. Real Estate agents are also the first to hear about different selling phases. Usually pre-sales and first phase’s sales are much cheaper. Your Real Estate will be able to get you this information quickly, allowing you to secure the house you always wanted.

We’ll do our best to make sure they house you buy, is the one you really want.


About National Realty Group

National Realty Group was founded in October 1991 by Jeff Maas. It started as a two man office but soon grew to a medium sized office. One of the original agents formed a new home development company soon after. Steven Walker Homes is now a large national home builder. Southfork Mortgage Company Corp. was founded in April 1990 by the owner of a large home builder. Jeff Maas stepped in as its Broker in September 1993. With the help of Jeff Evens, Jeff Maas was able to expand the company. In July 1994, the owner of Southfork retired and Jeff Maas and Jeff Evens purchased the company. They continued the growth and soon built it into a multi-million dollar corporation. National Realty Group remained separate until Jeff Maas sold it to Southfork Mortgage in 1996. This allowed the owners to expand National Realty Group while allowing its agents to provide mortgage services to their clients. In 1996, a branch office of Southfork and NRG was opened in San Bernardino. It was later moved to Redlands in the most well-known office in the city. In 1998, they opened an office in Temecula in the Temecula Valley Bank office. The offices were expanded and closed 45 million in real estate and loan transactions in 1998. In 1999, Jeff Maas purchased the company from Jeff Evens becoming sole owner and broker. Shortly after the name was changed to National One Mortgage Corp. The company outgrew its 3000 square foot office in Riversideand moved to a building of approximately 6000 square feet. The growth continued at a spectacular rate. The company grew to over 40 agents within one year. The expansion continued with the addition of 2800 square feet and later adding more space for a combined total of nearly 13,000 square feet. At our peak we had over 125 agents and 12 employees in the Riverside office alone. During the summer of 2003, we opened an office in Temecula at the corner of Rancho California and Margarita. This office was soon bursting at the seams with 42 agents and 3 full time employees. Due to the increased demand for our unique programs, by the public and real estate agents, offices were opened in Corona and Ontario in early 2005. The year saw more amazing growth with offices opening in Moreno Valley, Hemet, Las Vegas and Norco. Rancho Cucamonga and Phoenix opened the first part of 2006. A Murrieta office opened summer of 2007. The economy has not been kind to many real estate and mortgage companies. We have remained strong and successful. Our business model of a One-Stop Shop provides the exact service and convenience the Home-Buying public desires and needs.
