In the pursuit of your dream home, the question of whether or not to enlist the help of a real estate agent is a common one. With the rise of new construction homes and the accessibility of information online, many buyers wonder if they truly need an agent for this type of transaction.

But buying a new home is a major decision, and it's important that you feel empowered to make the most informed choice possible.

Do You Need a Real Estate Agent to Buy a New Construction Home?

Here's why you may not need a real estate agent when buying a new construction home:
