Yes, you should. Of course, as agents, we’re paid (by our local sponsors) to say that! But seriously, you should use your own agent when buying a new construction condo in San Francisco for 2 main reasons.
1. As Realtors who are more trusted advisers than salespeople, here at SFHotlist, we want to help you find the best home for you regardless of location.
In other words, we want to help you discover what’s most important to you about buying a home so you will find the right condo in the right development.
It may be SomaGrand but what if it’s the Infinity, the Millennium Tower or Esprit Park? What if, after exploring your options, you actually decide you’d prefer an older Victorian condo in Noe Valley? Actually, this just happened with a client of ours. She began her search in South Beach but ultimately decided that a Noe Valley condo was the best fit for her life.
To have the most successful & enjoyable home buying experience, you want to work with a Realtor who will take the time to get to know your individual situation and talk to you about all homes for sale regardless of location or real estate company. We don’t care where you buy your home. We just care that it’s the best fit for you! Make sense?
2. We have contacts at the various new developments and know who to talk with to get you the best deal available.
Pricing in new construction developments often follows a different set of rules than resale properties. It can be confusing and difficult to decipher since finding reliable sales comps is nearly impossible! Through our sales agent relationships and the entire Zephyr Real Estate network, we are privy to information that will help you obtain the best possible value for your new condo.
Again, it comes down to the fact that we are not selling one specific product, aka a unit at Blu, we are selling our service and commitment to become your Real Estate Consultants for life. It may sound a bit cheesy, but there’s a lot involved in buying a home in San Francisco and you’ll want help to make your experience a good one.
