New Homes, New Construction, Salt Lake City Utah Real Estate. Click here for Utah Builder Information

So you want to build your own home. Should you use a Salt Lake real estate agent? Or will you save money by buying directly from the builder?

A well qualified REALTOR will save the buyer and the builder money and time in the transaction because they educate and prepare the buyer for the many decisions that may arise, and help to prevent issues that needlessly waste valuable time on behalf of both parties.

Time, experience, knowledge, and resources can help to make your building experience more rewarding, and efficient. Here are some questions you might ask yourself that will help you determine whether the professional services of a REALTOR will benefit you.

Do you know exactly what you want to build?
Do you know which builder can do it for you?
Do you have access to the land you want to build on?
Is the builder's site acceptable to you?
Do you have knowledge of previous work by the builder?
Can you honestly evaluate the work of the builder and the worth of the home?
Can you sort, select, and evaluate lenders and loan types that benefit you, not the builder?
Can you objectively negotiate with the builder?
Can you negotiate through the contingencies that arise after the contract has been signed?
