When buying a new development in Greater Vancouver, it is highly recommended to work with a realtor. Here are some reasons why:
Higher Risk: If you buy a condo presale directly from the developer, their sales staff represent the developer, not you. Their sole interest is in selling as many units as possible. If you do not have your own agent for your Vancouver Condo Presale purchase, you will have to sign a form called the Disclosure-of-Risks-to-Unrepresented-Parties. Also, when you buy a new condo without an agent, there is no errors and omissions insurance applicable to the transaction.
VIP Sales Events: Up to 50% of homes in a new development in Vancouver can be sold out before the public grand opening! In many cases VIP Previews or special sales events are held well in advance of sales starting. These exclusive events are by invitation only, often with priority previews by appointment. Realtors work hard to develop relationships with the best developers so that they can get their clients priority access to the hottest new developments. At many projects, they can get you VIP Access ahead of the public opening which allows you to get the best selection and prices on your condo presale purchase.
Completely Independent: Realtors do not represent any developer; they only work for you. There are a lot of new developments and Vancouver condo presales to choose from and they will help you review the pros and cons of all the pre-construction projects and floor plans that are available in your budget. Their primary goal is to find the absolute best home for you.
Expertise: Realtors have extensive knowledge of the local real estate market and can provide valuable insights into neighborhoods, schools, transportation options, and other important factors that can impact your decision.
Negotiation Skills: Realtors are skilled negotiators who can help you get the best possible price for your new home.
