The construction of a home is a big project involving many contractors and suppliers. As the buyer and homeowner you are the financer and recipient of the final product. If you
are like most people, this is your biggest investment.
You may hear (from the builder or others) that a home inspection is unnecessary, that city inspections will be done, that this is an unusual step, etc. However, an inspection
conducted at or near the time of your final "walk-thru" can
catch important issues, such as forleaks, non-functional outlets, final grading of the lot, flashing problems, appliance operation, voids in mortar, etc.
At some point you will sell your home, and your buyer will likely have your home inspected. Some of the items the inspector catches now may seem minor, but they will come up later in your buyer's home inspection if they are not corrected. It is in your best interest to have everything nailed down now. If there are items that cannot be fixed before closing, and you cannot delay closing, ask the builder to sign a written list of items to be repaired or completed.
Building a new home can be an exciting and rewarding experience. A new home can deliver the right floor plan and finishes for you. It is a complicated project and huge investment. The support, advice and information that you will gain from a third party inspection is invaluable. Do not leave out this important step in the building process. It is well worth the investment.
