Here Are 3 Reasons to Inspect a Newly Constructed Home
Whether you're building your home from the ground up or purchasing a newly constructed home, it's important to make sure everything is in great shape for both you and your family.
Here are three reasons to make sure a home inspection is a top priority - even for new homes!
1. Impartial third-party
A home inspector can provide insight and unbiased feedback on structural components and an extra set of eyes in case anything may have been missed or overlooked during the construction.
2. Standards and requirements vary
It's likely that many older homes were built to standards at the time of construction, but as technology develops and improves, so do requirements to make assure the house is safe. These requirements change over time, and they can vary regionally, as well.
3. Resale value
At some point in the future, it's likely you may want to sell this new house. And, if there are any issues from the beginning, they will be discovered in subsequent home inspections moving forward. To avoid any potential concerns, having a home inspection early on will help to mitigate those issues.
