“There are things you can do to ensure a smooth new construction process.”
Are you thinking about buying a new construction home in the Billings, MT area? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Here are three common mistakes to avoid when buying new construction:
- Failing to hire a real estate professional to represent you: If you are going to court, would you represent yourself? If you have an ailment, would you trust a friend to diagnose you, or would you rather see an expert? A real estate professional will protect your interests when you go to negotiate a new home purchase.
- Do your research: Some builders simply aren’t reputable; so you can’t pick one without giving it a good deal of thought. There are many ways you can find out which builders are reputable. One of the most important things you can do is find a builder who is going to stand behind their product.
- Read the fine print: Builder contracts are setup to protect their interests. You need to ensure you are not getting fooled or taken advantage of in the contract stage. Again, working with a good Realtor is a great way to avoid problems with this part of the process.
