Do I need to get an inspection on a recently-built home?
Even on a new construction, it is possible that the builders made a mistake or two. We recommend getting an inspection no matter when the house was built. An inspection goes over every part of the house, alerting you not only to current issues but to things you may want to pay attention to or that might be a problem in the future. Your inspection report will detail how to best maintain your home and prevent future repairs.
I’m selling a home. Why do I need to get an inspection?
While home inspections are typically for buyers, it is becoming more common for homeowners to get an inspection on a home they are planning to sell. Knowing the details of the home before selling it allows the seller to go into negotiations with all the information they need. Also, an inspection prior to listing a house can give the seller a chance to address any issues that may affect the sale. Finally, a pre-listing inspection helps the seller avoid being accused of failing to disclose problems with the house.
