Inspection Still Necessary on New Construction

    An inspection is still necessary before closing on new construction. It is easy to understand why a buyer coNew construction needs inspection before closinguld presume that a new home has no issues, but regardless of its squeaky clean appearance it will behoove any buyer to conduct both an inspection and a final walk-through. An inspection will ascertain that everything is in working order and that all items that are meant to be included are completed and in place.

    Construction projects usually end with punch-list items that are yet to be finished, an inspection will point out what punch-list items have been completed and what items still need to be attended to. Once the home has closed the chance of repairs being made become less likely as the builder considers the project complete.

    Often when buying new construction a Realtor is not involved but don’t let the builder snowball you into leaving important items like the inspection objection clause off of your contract to buy. It would be a shame to move in to a new home and not have the hook-ups in place to install a washer and drier for example, have a bathroom that is missing a shower, or have appliances that were part of the deal absent from the home. Bottom line: an inspection is important no matter if the real estate is new or old.

Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service.
