Myth: You Don’t Need to Have a New Home Inspected
When someone is buying an existing home, a licensed home inspector will go through the property and see if there are any issues with the roof, water heater, foundation, insulation, and other features of the house. The buyer and seller may not have noticed these problems, but a professional has been specially trained to spot any red flags. Even though a new home does not have the wear-and-tear problems found in older homes, such as rotting wood or leaky pipes, it’s not completely free of issues. Bottom line: You should still have a home inspection performed on the new house you’re considering. The best way to avoid running into major problems down the road is to buy a new home from a reputable builder. Talk to us and we can talk with you about your plans.
