There are some bad agents out there that will not do you much service, and they make the rest of us look bad. Most agents do more than just sign some papers to get their commission. When you hire a good agent, they will help assess the bigger picture, especially when it comes to new builds. Therefore, the answer is yes. You should always get an agent when buying a new build.

Builders & Agents
Builders are not the enemy, but they will often overcharge you. It’s how they make their money. Many builders will steer you away from getting an agent, which will make overcharging you easier. What’s the best way to protect yourself? Do not go looking without your agent present. If you do not go with your agent on the first visit, it can be difficult to include one later. If you do find yourself looking at new builds without an agent, do not sign anything that could bar you from using your own agent.
Not all builders are created equal. Though rare, builders can slip in sneaky clauses in their contracts to protect themselves and not you in case something goes wrong. A qualified real estate agent on your side will know what to look out for. Your agent can also recommend independent inspectors that have your best interests in mind. Why do agents make sure you are happy in the long run and do not try to trick you? Agents actually get most of their business from repeat clients and referrals from clients.
