Buying a New Home from a Peterborough Builder - How can an agent help?


If you are considering a new home as an option, talk to your agent first before entering the show room.  Allow your agent to introduce you to the new home options in Peterborough and area. If you go in on your own, most builders will consider you their client. Your cost for representation by a sales agent would then come out of your pocket instead of the builders.

Check out this article from the Real Estate Council of Ontario that explains some of the reasons why working with a real estate professional -rather than just the builder's salesperson - is a good idea.
(Joseph Richer, RECO) With new homes popping up and construction cranes towering in many communities across the province, buying a brand new home or condo has never been so accessible or appealing for home buyers.
As you visit presentation centres, you may find scale models and glossy brochures showing the planned development, a variety of floor plans, examples of fixtures and finishes, and friendly sales representatives who are eager to help.
But, it’s important to remember that the salesperson working at the presentation centre is representing the builder. While the Real Estate and Business Brokers Act, 2002 (REBBA 2002) mandates that registered real estate professionals treat all parties in a transaction with fairness, honesty, and integrity, those folks will be working with the builder’s best interests in mind. Additionally, if the representative is a full-time salaried employee of the builder, they may not be registered with RECO. (Click here to read on.)
