As a home inspector with over 15 years experience (and many of those inspecting new homes in Texas and Oklahoma) I can't begin to tell you the stories I've heard Builder agents tell my Clients. Things that would get a licensed real estate agent's pulled so fast their heads would spin.

Now having said that, there are a lot of real estate agents out there that are just worthless as well. When my Clients ask whether they should use a real estate agent or just drop in the Builders office, I tell them to make sure they find an agent who will go the extra mile for them!

This means visiting the Builders office, making as many trips as the Clients want to view the home under construction, being there for the independent inspection, etc, etc.

Buying a newly constructed home without a good licensed real estate agent, buy at your own risk!

I recommend that you visit established real estate agencies in the area you are interested in working, make an appointment with the managers and begin a dialogue. You will get a clear sense at that point of what the best fit for you will be. ... more

The reality is, most sellers are not willing to carry any buyer financing unless the buyer is able to put a large percentage down payment.

Most builders will ask you to put your license in inactive status. This is to avoid any conflict of interest. You will find also that most builders prefer to hire a housewife with no high school diploma than a seasoned Realtor with a college degree. This is simply because of liability reasons, as a Realtor you know too much and they prefer to have someone that they can "mold" according to the company's culture.

One of the biggest downside is that you have to work on weekends. If your spouse is on the same schedule that's great otherwise it can become a strain. The money can be very good with the right builder and the right community.
