When you visit model homes in a development of new construction, have your agent attend the first visit to the model home and/or to meet with the builder.  As in any home purchase, it is important to be respresented!!!   The builder wants to maximize his sale and sometimes that means having the buyer add upgrades and improvements to the home that may have the buyer pricing themselves out of the home or overspending and over improving for the neighborhood. I am very knowledgeable in the New Construction process, married to a builder and having built numerous custom homes in and around Mchenry County, I can help you navigate through the process and help you sort out all the important details. It could save you money of the long term!!

 "Remember that a Buyer's Agent is there to represent the buyer!."  It is in your best interest to have an Agent's knowledge and expertise on your side.  Why would you want to go it alone?
