It’s unfortunate, but it happens: Sometimes home builders cut corners, and the details come out during a home inspection.
First things first: Skipping a home inspection for any reason can be a tremendously bad idea—and it could end up costing you tons of money in the long run.
Do You Need an Inspection on a Brand-New Home?
It doesn’t matter whether you’re buying a beachfront condo in Port Aransas, a newly built home near the beach, or a $300,000 home on North Padre Island. Your Realtor® will most likely tell you to hire an independent home inspector who can scour the house for problems.
Again, sometimes builders cut corners in an attempt to finish homes quickly or to save money. Your home inspector will look through the entire house, from top to bottom, to uncover clues that the builder may have skimped, done shoddy work, or simply ignored codes to get the house done.
You can go with the inspector, too. Two sets of eyes are better than one! Things you should look for include:
- Sloppy paint jobs
- Poorly aligned outlets and light switches
- A sloped floor
- Exposed wiring
- Bad-looking ductwork
