Do you need an agent when you buy a new home in Summerville or Charleston?

New Home Construction

Should you use an agent when buying a new construction home in Summerville or the Charleston, SC area?

You may have thought… “What’s the benefit of having an outside agent when the new home salesperson onsite knows the home better than the Realtor?”  However, you should always have representation when you walk into a new home development site or talk to a new home salesperson.  For one reason, you will not receive any discounts or be charged any extra fees because you have your own realtor.  You are the only one that loses when you are not represented.  The new home salesperson is representing the Builder, and protecting their best interests.  The contracts, which are unique to their development are written in favor of the builders and you need your South Carolina realtor to go through the contract and advise you.  

Who works for you?

The salesperson onsite at a development will be extremely friendly and helpful, but don’t forget that they are employed and paid by the builder and their loyalty will go with them.  After the contract is signed, as questions come up and if problems occur, you will be grateful you have an agent who is solely looking out for you and making sure the builder is doing what he is supposed to do.  You can’t always expect that from an onsite agent who has moved on and is working with new clients.  Making sure you have a Realtor who is working for you, but paid by them (can’t beat that! J), is a must in the New home buying process.  Your Realtor should be experienced in the New Home Construction arena and know the ins and outs of the building process so he can help you make wise decisions.


Most people think that buying a new home is like buying something at Target…it is a fixed price, no room for negotiations.  However, in our buyer’s market this is not always true.  While the prices are often firm, incentives, upgrades and closings costs are all negotiation tools that your Realtor can wield in your favor.

Benefits to you…

When you buy on your own without representation equals ZERO.  When you purchase without a buyer’s agent, the savings go to the builder and are not passed on to you.  Your realtor’s job is not just about finding you your home, but successfully navigating you through the passages that will see it all the way to completion and see that your best interests are always honored.  Don’t make the mistake of trying to handle your new home purchase without representation. 

Please contact me if you have any questions for me about the process or would like to look at New Homes for Sale in Summerville and Charleston I ask that all of my clients allow me to come along or at a minimum allow me to pre-register you with the builder for your first visit if you would rather check things out the first time on your own. 

Ashley Ridge High School-Dorchester District II’s Newest Addition

Homes have been built, and people have come to Summerville, in great numbers! 

With the rise in population, more children have needed to be admitted to the school system and the Dorchester District II School system has been working overtime to accommodate the additional students. 

The largest addition to Dorchester II is the new high school, Ashley Ridge High.  Due to open its doors to ninth and tenth graders next year (August 2008), it will become the third high school for Dorchester District Two, following Summerville High and Fort Dorchester.  I have been looking into this lately and have found some interesting information and details… 

Stats on Ashley Ridge High: (Taken from Post & Courier, Dorchester District II)

School District:Dorchester District 2.

Location: S.C. Highway 165, just south of the Legend Oaks subdivision off S.C. Highway 61.

Total Square feet: 235,000.

Projected 2008 enrollment: 850 to 900 ninth- and 10th-graders.

Building capacity: 1,800 students.

Project budget: $55.4 million.  


One of the concerns surrounding Ashley Ridge High has been the sports program.  Just this month, school board members approved the decision to begin the high school with a varsity sports program in Region 6-AA.  At this point, the Junior Varsity program will not be in place.“District officials said they hope the decision on varsity status would satisfy some families zoned for Ashley Ridge who are upset their children won’t get a chance to play on tradition-rich Summerville High and Fort Dorchester High athletic teams. Instead of waiting their turn at those schools, Ashley Ridge students can participate immediately in varsity sports.” (Post & Courier, October 16, 2007)


When it opens its doors, Ashley Ridge High will serve ninth and tenth graders and plans on adding a grade each subsequent year.   Current eighth graders that are zoned to go to Ashley Ridge will enter the ninth grade next year at the new school. However, current ninth graders at Summerville High School and Fort Dorchester are going to be given a choice to stay where they are, or go to Ashley Ridge.  Officials are hoping that most students will be open to changing schools.  This will relieve the large numbers found at the two high schools.

Kudos goes to Dorchester District II for working overtime to accomodate all of the great kids in our community.
