Buying New Construction

Given the choice, a lot of buyers would rather buy a new home than a resale property that someone else has lived in.

Whether you are a first-time buyer, moving up, downsizing/right-sizing, or someone who has bought and sold several properties, if you haven't bought a new home recently, you may not know that buyers have the right to have your own buyer agent/broker represent your interests.

While builders make it easy for you to visit their site and work with the builder's agent, it is always better to have your own agent. Although the builder's agent may be very nice and helpful, you need to remember that they work for the builder and it is their job to get the most money and do what  best for the builder. NOTE: The one caveat is that your agent must accompany you to the site the first time you visit. Even if you are "just looking" and stop in to ask a few questions, your right to representation could be compromised. If you drive though a new construction site and have questions, call YOUR agent, don't talk with the on-site salesperson.

Recommendations for Marilyn Messenger

The sale of my home [in Sudbury] was not typical, requiring a realtor of exceptional skills, experience and knowledge. Yet even though I had been in the home building field, I could think of only one realtor for the job – Marilyn Messenger. Not only was she eminently equipped to handle the real estate end of things but she knew exactly the right lawyers to handle the complex legal issues associated with the sale. There was a substantial array of documents to fill out and sign, but Marilyn was always on top of, and ahead of things. As a result of Marilyn's hard work, my house had a buyer in the first week it was on the market and the deed exchanged hands in about a month – for such a complex sale that kind of speed is unusual It is fair to say that I would not have made it through all the steps required in such a sale without Marilyn.

Marilyn sold our townhouse in one day. We had four offers and several overing asking. We were able to do this with Marilyn's thorough and thoughtful consultation and guidance. She knew exactly what would sell our home. We met initially in early Fall and prepared a plan to be the first on the market in the Spring. Marilyn stayed in constant communication and pinged us when we needed to take action. She made the selling process as painless as possible with maximum results. We were also able to buy our next home through Marilyn. We turned in our keys for our townhome and got the keys to our new home the very next day. Coordination was flawless. Overall, Marilyn has a keen eye, superior attention to details, a great sense of the market, and excellent communication skills. We would definitely recommend her as an agent. Beverly T.
We were so pleased to have worked with Marilyn for a second time! Marilyn helped us to buy our first home in Sudbury 10 years ago and when we were ready to sell it, we called her again. The process of buying and selling can be overwhelming, but Marilyn helped us to sort through it all. She is a master at organization and coordination of the many parties involved in this process. She was on top of all of the details so that nothing fell through the cracks. There were multiple offers on the house we ended up buying and on our house when we sold it, and Marilyn was invaluable in helping us to navigate through those negotiations. Following her advice, we had an accepted offer on our house in just 3 days! We would definitely recommend Marilyn! J. Jackson
