New construction is one of my specialties.
You might have better negotiating power without a realtor but it will still cost you if you don't have an expert in your corner. There are dozens of things that builders typically do that people would not want if they knew better. If you work with someone who knows new construction materials, techniques, contracts and pricing, you will have a better chance at getting the home you want at a fair price.
Many builders will cut corners to save a few dollars, knowing that it will cost you a lot more to change those things later.
Anyone who is thinking of having a home built should have both an attorney and an agent or consultant who are knowledgeable about new construction. Having your own expert representation will save you money in the long run and help you avoid overlooking things that you will want the house to have once it is built.
