Buying a New Salt Lake Home
Reasons to have your own agent when buying a new Salt Lake home

Buying a new Salt Lake home is both an exciting and rewarding experience. But, the new home buying process consists of paperwork, negotiations, inspections and often require services, which can make buying a new home a challenging experience. 

An experienced real estate agent, (one that has been involved in new construction), should posses the knowledge and experience needed to help you through a smooth and effortless home buying process. 

The Builder Has an An Agent

Since the builder also has his or her own agent, the buyers agent is crucial to protect the interest of the buyer for several reasons.

  • The buyers agent guarantees that the interests of the buyer are protected, helping the buyer make informed decisions throughout the home buying process. 
  • An agent has access to new Salt Lake construction home listings and will provide a tour of homes of interest. That makes it easier for the buyer to make the decision concerning which home they choose to buy when compared to other new homes available in the Salt Lake market.
  • The Salt Lake agent is able to conduct a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA)  helping the buyer compare the cost  to the current market. This prevents the buyer from paying more than the market value of the home. 
  • The agent acts as a go-between, between the seller and the buyer, negotiating the price, upgrades, closing cost, delivery dates and necessary inspections and ongoing negotiations with the seller. This relieves the buyer from the burden of doing his or her own negotiation. 
  • The agent also audits and evaluates all the correct and necessary paperwork involved in the home buying process.

Your Agent as Part of Your Team

A Salt Lake real estate agent has a list of local reputable service providers such as lenders, title officers, and home inspectors, which makes them a great resource for reliable providers of these services. They can help you assemble a winning team.

The need for a great team is because during the course of building and closing the new home, many agreements, and decisions will be made between the buyer and the seller. it is the agent’s job to follow up to make sure that every detail of the transaction is included in the closing. Every avenue must be covered and the buyer or seller does not miss any pertinent details. Your experienced Salt Lake agent is your protection against that happening.


A real estate agent does not have the knowledge or expertise to deal with legal problems, however a real estate attorney will help ensure that the buyer’s legal interests are protected and that the actions of the buyer and seller are within the boundary of the law. Let me know if you would like help selecting a lawyer for your purchase.
