Choose Your Ideal Home Builder

There are several benefits to hiring an experienced real estate agent before signing a contract with a builder. Choosing the right home builder can be an overwhelming process. After all, many home builders look awesome online but how do you know which one is right for your project?

Not all real estate agents work with home builders on a regular basis. When it comes to building a home from the ground up, you’re not necessarily going to want to hire a family friend who happens to have a real estate license. You want to work with an agent that knows the pros and cons of all the home builders in your area! The Small Real Estate Team specializes in selling new construction homes. We can help you choose the right Kansas City home builder based on what’s most important to you. 

Is good communication a top priority for you? Do you care how long it takes to complete the home? Are you looking for a fully custom home or are you open to choosing an expertly pre-designed floor plan? There are several factors to consider before choosing a home builder and the right real estate agent will be able to let you in on insider knowledge. Not to mention, they’ll be able to help you steer clear of builders that have a horrible reputation! 

Find A Great Lender & Save Thousands

If you’re not shopping around for the right lender, you’re making a huge mistake! The world of home loans is complex. How will you know when you’ve secured the best interest rate possible? A real estate agent can help you find a great lender, thus saving you thousands of dollars in interest! 

Navigate The Inspection Process

Furthermore, a real estate agent can help you during the inspection process of your new build. Often, when building a home, buyers are so excited that they might miss crucial flaws during the inspection process. After all, if you haven’t built a home before, how would you know what to look out for? Your real estate agent can provide a second set of eyes and spot any red flags during the inspection process. This can help ensure your home is truly move-in ready when closing day arrives! 

Get Top Dollar For Your Listing

Hiring the right real estate agent can help you maximize the value of your existing home! Who doesn’t want to sell their old house for top dollar and put it towards their dream home? There are a lot of inexpensive changes you should make before putting your house on the market. From lighting to decluttering, a fresh coat of paint, and more, a real estate pro can help you get the most out of your listing.

Represent Your Best Interest

Not only can an experienced real estate agent help you pick the right builder, but they also represent you and your best interests. Not all real estate agents operate by the same values but, at The Small Real Estate Team, we do business based on the best interests of our clients. We’ll help you secure a structurally sound home at the best possible price. After all, we don’t just want your business for one transaction – we want it for life! 

A Realtor Can Save You Money, Not Cost More! 

Some buyers might be tempted to go straight to a home builder before hiring a real estate agent to represent them. If you do so, you could be missing out on valuable resources, negotiations, and opportunities to save some serious cash! Hiring a real estate agent to advocate for you during the home-building process can make a huge difference in your overall experience.

Kendra says: “The Small team helped us prepare to sell our home while also paying attention to the market to help us know exactly when to list our home and how much to list it for. They were efficient but took their time to thoroughly explain every question we had. I know that we wouldn’t have had nearly the amount of offers or sold our house for the price we did if it were not for their guidance and incredible marketing expertise of the Small Team.” 

Jay says: “So easy to work with. Great communication, encouraging, and knowledgeable. Not just one person we worked with but a team of professionals who were available day and night to answer our questions.
