I’ve heard it many times on showings or while having conversations with people — the assumption that a new build won’t come with any problems. Unfortunately, new doesn’t mean problem-free. In fact, new homes will likely have some issues whether it be missed construction items or construction defects. Even with an inspection of the home, some issues may not be uncovered until the buyer moves in which can be frustrating. I recently read an article from one of the inspection companies I work with that brings to light some of the common problems with new construction.
Read the article from Scott Homes here: https://bit.ly/2xzn7IR
To highlight some of the items they discuss:
- Dirty duct systems
- Doors that don’t close properly
- Windows issues
- Incorrect plumbing or appliance hook-ups
- Overlooked painting
