If you are looking to buy a home, you might be thinking that older homes are the only ones that need inspections. This is not the case. A professional should inspect even brand new homes to ensure the safety of your family and investment. Here are five reasons why you should have a new home inspected.
- When Considering Your ROI
Though a new home may be seemingly perfect, there can still be issues lurking behind the walls. When you are thinking about purchasing a home, you really are making an investment in a piece of real estate. In order to ensure that you will receive a higher return on investment (ROI), you should have this home inspected by a professional. That way, when you go to sell the home, and have a mandatory inspection performed, there are no surprises.
- Quick Construction Can Equal Mistakes
We’ve all seen those new homes as we drive by that seem to be built in a day. While this makes for an efficient process, mistakes can be made. Whether the issues were genuine accidents, or they were the cause of someone cutting corners on the job, they still need to be inspected and addressed by a professional during the various stages of construction.
- To Have Issues Repaired Before You Buy
Like the quick-construction mistakes, new homes can have mishaps that need to be repaired, too. Your professional home inspector will be able to identify these issues during a new home inspection, allowing you the opportunity to have them fixed before you move in. This way, you won’t have to worry about contractors tracking in and out of your new home after you’ve just moved in.
- Municipal Building Inspections Aren’t the Same
When new homes are built, they have to be inspected by the state to ensure that they are up to code. Sure, these inspections will cover the bulk of home’s structure, just to make sure the building is sound, but these inspections don’t go into great detail. With a professional inspector, every inch of your new home will be inspected for potential issues, during and after construction.
- For Peace-of-Mind
Last, but most definitely not least, is for peace-of-mind. It can be rather unsettling to move your family into a brand new space that has not been inspected. By having an experienced and trained professional check all the major systems of your home, you can put your worries away. Everything from plumbing to electrical, the foundation and all of the above will be examined for safety and efficiency.
