As a born and raised Calgarian, I have watched Calgary grow to become the world-class city it is today. As much as I try to stay informed regarding all of the new developments throughout the city, it becomes impossible to know of all of the developments happening in Calgary.
As soon as I research the community or builders for a client, that knowledge often becomes obsolete a year later, after the community continues to change dramatically. NewHomeListingService.com™ allows Calgary REALTORS® and potential home buyers a tool to help narrow down the search process and help find the right builder and/or community without having to drive around wasting precious time researching in person.
It allows us REALTORS® the ability to do the research from a computer and understand the expectations of builders to ensure that we are able to help our clients and whether or not the builder will pay us for our efforts.
Many home buyers start researching new homes many months before they even consider contacting a REALTOR® to help.
Often by then, it is too late. The builders often refuse to pay us, making it nearly impossible to help our clients pick the right property and negotiate on their behalf. The tools offered through NHLS™ can help us register our clients without even having to know that the clients are considering buying something new. This allows us the ability to contact our clients early on in the process and guide them through the many pitfalls of going directly to a show suite without representation.
The cost of this service is very minimal and will almost surely pay for itself for 20+ years after your first deal, because of it. I am unsure how much more it has cost by clients when they had to negotiate without me. Were they protected? Did they have a lawyer read through their contract? If not, then who was representing their best interest? I can assure them that it was not the builder. I wish NHLS™ had been around when I’d started over a decade ago.
