Those who purchase newly built homes understandably think that they will have no immediate issues with the property. The fact of the matter, however, is that problems arise with new construction and, in extreme cases, homeowners may have to file a lawsuit to get the issues corrected. If you are purchasing a newly constructed home, then a full home inspection can help to prevent these types of problems.

New Home Front View

Home builders will typically perform their own inspection of a property before turning it over to you. There is also the misconception that because it’s a new home, the county inspectors have also done a thorough inspection. Not so.  It’s brand new so “what could go wrong”. Nothing could be further from the truth.  You will typically still have the right, however, to perform your own inspection before closing on the property. If issues arise on the inspection, then you will be able to request that they be dealt with prior to closing. You may also ask that your closing price be adjusted, or that you be cut a check, to compensate you for costs which you will incur. But remember, this is only a request, and the builder of your spec home is NOT required to do anything thing. A quality builder will consider your request. Obtaining your own inspection, therefore, allows you to have peace of mind knowing that you are not purchasing a new home, only to be confronted with substantial repair expenses. This will give you the opportunity to be proactive about any outstanding construction issues. Also, consider using a qualified Realtor when purchasing a new home so someone is looking out for you interests.

The Benefits of a New Home Inspection

While most new homes are without issue, this is not always the case. It is not uncommon for the purchasers of a newly constructed home to deal with extreme issues which can even require the filing of a lawsuit. Having your new home inspected is a small price to pay for insuring against such a problem.
