The Buy From the Builder myth goes something like this. Why not buy directly from the builder and cut out the realtor? That would make sense because we would then end up saving the realtors commission. Right? Wrong, buying from the builder does sometimes make sense. While the commission is an integral part of the price what makes you think the builder will come down anymore on his price because you don't use a realtor. Let me put it this way. Most builders have to watch their comparables for any neighborhood. They are not going to give you the special deal you hope for and carry that loss of profit through the next 10-15 houses they build. Would you do that? I don't think so. The reason the builder wants to do business without the realtor is because they are smart about the transaction. They, simply put, can take advantage of your ignorance on costs, comparable properties and so on. It simply doesn't make sense not to have your own professional. It would be like representing yourself in your own murder trial. Why put the money in the builders pocket when you can pay the same price or most of the time less, and have proper representation. I am sure this blog post will have some people that don't agree. However, you have to make your own decision and I would consider checking the motivation of the person you are dealing with.
