Buying a new house? Building a house? Among real estate attorneys, there is a saying, “50% of builders are crooks, 25% don’t know what they’re doing and be careful with the others.” Check the review sites about any builders that you are considering and you will find that most consumers agree with this statement.
I’ll Refund the Entire Commission to You.
When you meet with the builder tell them that you have an agent/attorney and provide them with my name. This will entitle me to collect a buyer broker commission which I will refund to you (less my legal fees). My fees are only payable if I collect the commission. If you try to negotiate directly with the builder to discount the purchase price by the amount of the buyer broker commission, you will likely forfeit the commission to the builder. By using me, you will save a lot of money and have the benefit of having an attorney help you with the negotiations. Most of my new construction clients get commission refunds of over $8,000 – and that’s after they paid me for my legal services.
Builder Purchase Agreements are Awful.
Second, most builder purchase agreements are extremely complicated and one-sided that expose consumers to terrible risks and liability. While many builders often refuse to negotiate these contracts, I still should be able to help.
