Pre-purchase Home Inspections are performed to identify defects prior to taking ownership to negotiate repairs or price adjustments which reflect the condition of the property.
New Construction Inspections
Watch out for new construction, in some cases these can be more problematic than a really old home. New construction inspections are performed near the completion of construction. The inspection will be performed to verify that proper building techniques were used and that the various components of the home were properly installed. We still have not found a builder that hasn’t taken short cuts or does things wrong. We nail every one of them. Another few hundred bucks to make sure the job is done right on a $400,000 home is well worth it.
