Constructive Advice

Many times they get in the way of you getting what you want. I suspect they wan to provide service to you, their client and show they builder that you are the whatch dog,

The reality is that builders have a system and, assuming they are not new, know what they are doing. Having someone in the room puffing their chest  to prove something can be frustrating for you and the builder. They may mean well but trying to assert power in a room where it is not necessary will not help you. Let your builder build. The agent did their job introducing you to the builder, Let them drive. Let your agent know that you will give them the nod when they need ot jump in or to hold their questions until the end.

Your agent is their to be a guide but they are not building your home. Builders vent regularly about how an agent is not helping and actaully making it harder for the buyer. If you do need expert advice about construction, hire someone, like an ENERGY STAR Verifier to review plans for how energy efficient the plan may be. Get a second bid if you want the lowest price.

That is today's advice for working with a builder
