The Home Inspector's Blog
|Posted on October 14, 2016 at 2:04 PM||comments (0)|
Charleston’s economy is booming and it’s a great time to buy a newly built home. Are you building from scratch or, are you purchasing a home that’s just about finished? In either case, you may be on the fence as to whether you should spend the extra dollars to have a home inspection. It’s new construction after all, what could be wrong? And there’s a one year builder’s warranty -- you’ll surely be able to identify any repair needs while living in the house. Plus, your builder has an excellent reputation for quality construction.
All good reasons to forgo the extra expense of having your brand new house inspected. But have you considered . . .
Know your home is built right, right from the start.
When your house is nearly complete and just before closing, the builder will schedule a walk-through with you so that any last cosmetic concerns can be identified for repair.
Backing up a couple of days before the builder’s walk-through is the time to have it professionally inspected by an independent, certified home inspector. At this time, your home inspector will identify any functional problems related to the home’s systems that may not be identified during the builder’s walk-through. Plus, Solid Ground will teach you all about your new house and show you how to maintain it as well -– this is especially useful if you’re a first-time home buyer, if you’ve been living in an older home or, if you’ve just moved from a northern climate and could benefit from an overview of how a southern home is built.
