Depends on their budget, location and preferences. New constructions are much more expensive in here.

It depends on what the client wants.
What do they prefer? Unless I am paying I focus on their goals.
Don't have a preference. Depends on which best satisfies my client's requirements. However, in my area the commission for a new home is often larger than for a resale and the builder does all the paperwork.
William Feela - I leave it to them - what they want is what I'd help them find.
Either, it's their choice.
Whatever works best for the client. It not about what I would prefer .... it's about the client. Always.
New or resale as long as they buy, and we get to the closing table
Whatever they want to buy.
I prefer pre-owned
Either is fine, William! I love selling resales/historic homes but, do enjoy the occasional new construction and following them through the process. It's educational and helps us keep up with the county codes with regards to building, helping with future inspection items.
It depends upon the client... I will show both, discuss the pros and cons of each.
It depends on what they want!
It depends what their criteria are. One must reach out to new construction if the buyers are looking for most energy efficient home with all the new bells and whistles.
New Home hands down. There is little time or effort involved after having the offer accepted. The only negative is not having time to build rapport so I'll remind them that I need their referrals and review.
I want to help them find the home they want...new or resale.
existing could close faster
New built, if it is finished, is often easier. Any repairs needed should be covered under builder warranty. And the builder/seller is motivated this time of year to move existing inventory before winter hits. May get some extras (refrigerator, exterior landscaping, A/C) thrown in.
Depends on what they want and which area. I like selling new homes. We have a lot of renovations going on here also, so just depends.
I want to find them whatever it is that they want, be it new or existing. I like selling new homes the best.
In my market, there isn't a whole lot of new construction, but when there is, you don't generally have to worry about bidding wars.
At this time new construction is very rare in my area. It has been rare since I got my real estate license.
Whatever their preferences is and fulfills their needs. However, I woud make suggestions in either direction if they haven't thought about it themselves.
God Sunday WIlliam Feela,
Finally after looking at ten homes we have one under contract. Yes, I did mentioned new construction. They wanted an older style home, (1910-1930's)
An existing home for a better price and a quicker settlement.
I recommend what works best for them! Some can't handle new construction and some prefer it!
I prefer to find them the one they want!
the buyer is calling the shots....not the time required to get to the closing table!!
No preference here, whatever the buyers want.
It will depent on the client. Some people will prefer the new built, while others appreciate the appeal of an established neighborhood.
Depends on what they want and what is available. There aren't any new construction homes in my most recent buyer's price range. Most new homes out here start at the low $1mil and go from there. Not exactly entry-level.
Existing..much simpler and most people building really have no idea of what they really want.
Whatever they want, but easier if "gently used".
Not up to me. I'm OK as long as they are happy and satisfied with whatever they buy.
Depends on their needs and inventory.
Whichever they want works for me.
It depends what they want. Often i show both and let them decide
We all have different needs and desires so once you vett the clinet you can direct them properly.
Whatever they prefer
I don't have a preference. It is based on the client.
That is up to the client
First, whatever the clients are interested in! That being said, I really like working with the new homes sales offices in Naples and they pay a generous commission and many times, upfront while the building is under construction. Some even don't ask for the commission back if the buyers cancel! What's not to love about that arrangement?
It's not up to me, I'll show what they want to see and have been approved
Prefer showing them my listings.
it depends on what they want.
Whichever home excites them. It is all about what they want.
New is more fun but existing closes faster.
I prefer to find them the right house for them and don't care if it's resale or new.
Depends on their needs & wants. Both are available in San Diego, and typically re-sale pays better than new construction the last 3 years, but new sales are easier, so it's a 50/50 for me. I stick with what's best for the buyer, not what's best for me.
I usually ask what my client wants, price, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, age of the home etc and go from there. So most of the times I ended up showing both pre-owned and new built.
Not a fan of building new homes, contributing to urban sprawl when there are plenty of existing homes.
If people have that much excess money, there are much more noble things to do with it than spend it on an excessive lifestyle.
