If You Can Imagine It, Your Broker Can Find Someone to Build It

If you have a specific vision for your new home, whether that entails custom fixtures or a feature as specialized as a stealth wall, your real estate broker can be a source of speciality contractors to make it happen. 

Imagine It and Have It Built
In addition to the usual list of service providers that your realtor will include in your real estate transaction, a well-connected realtor will be able to provide home buyers and home builders with a wide variety of professionals in the construction and home improvement industry.

Realtors maintain a list of vetted and recommended resources, from insurance agents and home inspectors, to landscapers, screen enclosure specialists, and flooring installers. Many also have connections with specialized tradesmen, like Covert Concepts that builds hidden doors, safe rooms, and concealed storage, in both new construction and existing homes.

House Hunting with KBT: What's to Love at 221 Spruce Drive in Wilmington NC

Debbie Alford, Broker/Realtor, shares what she loves about the home at 221 Spruce Drive in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Which room do you love most?

My favorite room is the large family room, located at the front of the home. It is larger than most and very bright with sunlight.

The property is unique in the fact that it has a beautifully manicured yard, on the corner of a cul-de-sac, in a desirable centrally located area of Wilmington.

Why You Need A Buyer's Agent: A Tale of Two Buyers

Sarah: She lay awake thinking about the Bungalow on Magnolia Street which had apparently accepted an offer shortly before she called the listing agent to schedule a showing earlier that day. She was so disappointed to miss out on that home. So many of the homes she called about were already sold or had a contract on them. This was in spite of her intricate (albeit time-consuming) process of checking all the real estate websites on an almost minute by minute basis.

Jacob: He had a big smile as he hung up the phone to tell his wife they had the winning offer for the Bungalow on Magnolia. It had been a crazy afternoon starting when their real estate agent texted to tell him about the new listing that had come on the market within the hour. Their agent scheduled a showing immediately and they were able to get an offer in before the end of the day.

Why was Jacob’s experience so different from Sarah’s?

Jacob had an agent who has a competitive advantage over unre ...
