Nothing is ever perfect, including a new construction home. Human error can result in a number of problems that may not reveal themselves until years later including faulty electrical wiring, foundation issues and defective roofing installation. Regardless of the quality of construction or reputation of the builder, many problems can be uncovered in an inspection of a new home that may save the buyer time, money and heartache down the road.
Even a new home warranty, typically offered for a year from the purchase date, does not always protect the buyer from potential issues. Building defects and safety issues may not be revealed for years or until the buyer decides to sell. Choosing to inspect a new home allows the buyer to enter into escrow with confidence and knowledge.
