Should you get an inspection on a new construction house?
The builder said the house was inspected several times during the construction process. Plus the builder says he made all of the repairs that were identified. In addition, you don’t want to waste your money on any unnecessary inspections. All of this gets us back to the question of “Should you get an inspection on a new construction house?” The answer is “Yes”
Here’s several reasons why you should get an inspection on a new construction home:
I always recommend buyers get an inspection on their new construction homes in Spring because the inspectors always find issues that need to be addressed. When you get an inspection on a new construction house, you can get the builder to repair the items on the report. If you don’t get an inspection, then when you go to resale the home the same items will show up and the new buyers will be requesting for you to make the repairs. Save your money and get the builder to make the repairs now.

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen and our house was under contract in 2 days! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
