New construction home inspection might at first seem unnecessary. Everything was approved by the local building department inspectors, therefore everything should be okay with the house that I’m having built. Home inspections cost money, so I’m wasting my money by having a property inspection done on something that’s brand new. Right?
When inspecting new construction, a home inspector will often not find any issues with the house. Other times those inspecting new real estate will find quite a few items that need attention. We are all humans, mistakes can happen. We need to meet our deadlines, or sometimes a contractor deems something “good enough.” But these should not be an excuse; a person is making the biggest investment in their life when purchasing the home.
Furthermore, another reason to have a new construction home inspection is the advice that the buyer is getting from the home inspector. The home inspector will advise the buyer about the routine maintenance, talk about ways to improve some of the systems in the house that the builder is not required to do, and answer questions about the new systems in the house that the clients didn’t have in the previous home.
It’s a good idea to have a home inspection company take a look at the house, even if the house is a new construction. For additional details, please contact us at (720) 773-0964
