Back in December I began to search to purchase a new home. The market was crazy back then as it still is now, and after bidding on around 10 homes and losing out, I decided to go the new construction route in mid January. The closing date of my new house in next month, and I just got a new buyer contract from the realtor who I hadn’t heard from since late January. The thing that concerns me is the verbiage concerning the Brokers Fee, which they are asking 3% and that anything not paid by the builder will be on me. Is this normal to have no contact for so long then be sent something like this? I have a hard time thinking the builder will be paying such a large fee.
