Residential Inspection Services from Guardian®
When buying a
newly-completed home (a home under five years old), some home buyers may be
tempted to skip the inspection process. However, it is important to keep in mind
that the condition of that new home today depends largely on three important factors:
- Quality of original construction
- Quality of building materials used
- Quality of care from current and previous owners (if
some cases, no one
has ever actually lived in the newly-completed home yet, or if they have, for a short period of time. The
home may have been a builder's "spec" (a home built on
speculation without a pre-sale buyer) or a "model" used for sales
purposes. Or in other instances, the home might be REO (Real Estate Owned) property that
now belongs to a lending institution due to foreclosure on the builder or new owner.
In all cases,
it is important to remember that a newly-completed home is not immune from defects,
and should be carefully inspected before you buy.
