Should you have the Spring Texas home you are buying inspected? Yes. But do you need an inspection if the home is new? Most buyers think the answer is No. But the answer is still the same – Yes. Just because the home is new doesn’t mean it was built correctly.
I know … the builder told you he was having the house inspected. So why should you spend money on an inspection when the builder has already had the house inspected? Because the inspector hired by the builder works for the builder. He does not work for you. You do not get a copy of inspection report prepared by the builder’s inspector. Thus you don’t know what was identified as being in need of repair nor do you know if it was repaired.
Whether the home was built 30 years ago or 2 months ago, I always recommend buyers get Spring Texas homes inspected. If you get a new home inspected, the builder will fix the items listed on the inspection report. If you don’t, those same items will show up when you go to sell your Spring Texas home. The only difference is who pays for the repairs … You or the builder. I prefer the builder and I suspect you would too.

I cannot harp on how wonderful Jill has been during my new home build purchase! She has gone above and beyond by attending every single meeting that I had (design center meeting, electrical, blue tape meeting, final acceptance meeting, closing). During the design appointment, Jill gave pointers on what upgrades would have the best resell value and how much I would see out of it. It was my first time going through the new home building process so it helped make the meeting way less stressful. Jill has been there for me every step of the process even after the closing! I truly have never met a more passionate, hard working individual! I would HIGHLY recommend! read less
