Do I need an agent with new construction?

The short answer - YES! As a full service real estate team, the Grove Team, Keller Williams offers representation to buyers purchasing new construction in Northeast Tarrant County.

Advise on builders and subdivisions
For example, an agent can provide information on recent sales and resales available in the subdivision and area and advise as to experience with particular builders.
