We offer phase inspections during new construction that include; pre-drywall and post settlement. You may request any single phase or a combination of phases which best suits your individual needs.
These phased home inspections provide documentation on the condition of the home while it is being built from the ground up. The home inspection ensures quality workmanship by enabling the builder to take corrective steps without significantly impacting the construction schedule.
Our documentation is especially useful in establishing a timeline for construction defects that were not corrected by the builder prior to settlement. The detailed home inspection reports prepared during new construction also serve as an excellent sales tool when the property is later resold.
Pre-Listing inspections are good for homeowners who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. Many sales are cancelled due to the buyer's shock at the "functional condition" of the home. It may look great cosmetically but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner's knowledge.
Having the home inspected by a home inspector prior to placing it on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issues found in the inspection report. Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can't make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often produce a higher net sale price for the owner
