Never Skip Advice from a Home and Property Inspector

Today's technology and fast pace mean real estate transactions can happen in the blink of an eye. In some cases, you may think it's okay to forgo the services of a home and property inspector in favor of putting in or accepting a bid ahead of the competition.

No matter how appealing this idea sounds at the time, we caution against skipping this vital step. Turning down a thorough inspection completed by a licensed professional can backfire. When severe structural and other costly damage or issues are uncovered down the line, you may wish you had gone with an inspection.

New Home Warranty Inspection Services

When you buy a brand-new home, it’s vital to get it inspected for warranty purposes. This is especially true if you’re purchasing a home that has been newly constructed. Getting an inspection will ensure that any potential problems with the house are detected and fixed by the builder— before you have to deal with them.

In addition, many warranties include specific requirements that must be met to be valid, such as a certain level of insulation in the walls or inspections for hidden damage. If something goes wrong with your new home after you've moved in, and it's not covered under warranty, you may have to deal with repair costs or pursue legal action.

By getting your newly constructed home inspected, you can be sure that any issues are caught and corrected before they cause any problems for you or your family. Our experts are here to ensure you’re confident in the quality and longevity of your investment. Call us to get started with a risk-free estimate.
