NEW HOME (PHASE CONSTRUCTION) INSPECTIONS
If you are buying a new construction home, you might assume that a home inspection isn’t needed. No one has ever stepped foot in your model home for anything to break or have maintenance issues. A phase inspection can provide valuable insight into your builder’s construction, as well as the opportunity to prevent costly repairs on the home later down the road. You might be surprised at how many issues can be found by an unbiased 3rd party inspector. Low-quality building material incorrectly installed roofing or insulation, and open junction boxes are just some of the things that can be missed. Although many builders are great about completing repair work discovered within your first few months of living there, some are the opposite. After you close, they are no longer interested in what needs to be fixed and your name is put at the bottom of a long list.
With a new construction inspector helping you throughout the building process, these issues will be found immediately and fixed before closing. There are three opportunities during the building cycle when it is recommended to have your third-party inspector evaluate and report on the workmanship and construction of your new home. The standard 3-phase, new construction inspection process is utilized to ensure that major defects within your home are not covered up. Knowing that your new home is being constructed in accordance with the International Residential Code (IRC) and is in total compliance with all state-mandated regulations, will ensure your peace of mind.
11-MONTH HOME WARRANTY INSPECTIONS
Most builders provide you with a year warranty after residing in your new construction home. It is crucial to have your house inspected by the 11th month of the warranty to provide you time to address any issues with your home builder. Houses are pretty good at keeping secrets and may go undetected until something goes wrong or is inspected. A Professional Real Estate Inspection Services home warranty inspection will provide you with a full comprehensive report so you can hand that over to the builder for repairs before your builder’s warranty runs out.
Having the knowledge and 3rd party expertise on how to hold builders accountable is never a bad thing.
INVESTOR REAL ESTATE INSPECTIONS
Whether you’re an individual looking to buy a home for personal use or you’re considering investing in real estate as a business venture, the basics of the home inspection process are the same. Real estate investors, however, should carefully assess home inspection results and evaluate the value of a property in terms of return on investment. Are you going to have to spend too much money on repairs in order to make a profit? Investors who are thorough and know how to interpret inspection results are best at making informed decisions that will lead to fruitful investments.
