Is it better to build direct with a builder or go through a 3rd party agent?
YES! Deal directly with the builder, Here is why
- Although an agent will tell you that their service is free, Your builder will have an agreement with the agent to pay them a commission for any contracts signed. The price your agent sells the building cost to you incorporates their commission. So you are paying a premium rate.
- Agents do not have the technical experience of building and knowledge. Deal direct with the builder and ensure that plans, selections and extra’s are all handled efficiently to limit miscommunication and time delays.
- Remove the unnecessary middle man out of the equation and allow for a smoother stress free process.
- Build rapport direct with your builder and get the answers you need immediately.
