If you are planning on building a home, use a Realtor. It does not cost extra. The Realtor's commission comes directly out of the builder's advertising budget. It does not cost you one dime.
The area that you mentioned is a very popular area. As you make your decision in moving forward, consider all of your options. Protect yourself! I went to a closing recently with a local builder and the builder was trying to stick the buyer with three years of Homeowner's Association Dues. Don't let this happen to you.
I personally have 14 years of new home construction experience and have had four homes built for myself. I know the process very well. If you need any advice or would like representation with your home purchase, it would be a pleasure to share my experience with you.
