But the Buyer can still fall back on his appointed Buyer’s Agent later, can’t he? Maybe not – the Buyer who registers when he walks into the Builder’s office alone or gives out his personal details may have lost his right to Agent representation. That’s how the system works. There is a Buyer’s Agent commission built into the selling price each builder calculates, but few reputable builders will reduce the price where an Agent is not involved.
And consider this: can a Buyer trust a Builder who is prepared to give an “under the counter” price reduction? If the Builder will break agreements he has made with others in the industry (other builders and Realtors), what regard will he have for one lone UK buyer when it comes to honoring contracts and warranties? Food for thought!
