Oh yes, this is SO TRUE. I find buyers that believe the builder's representative in the show home represents THEM and THEIR interests, AND I find those same buyers think the builder will have the home inspected too. This article gives a brief insight into the reality of the home inspection segment- GET ONE, and don't rely on the builder. Get represented too- find a good agent to represent and educate you in the new home buying process.

We forgot that. We missed that. And the list goes on.
On a brand new home inspection, you would think that there would be very few things to find when inspecting for the buyers.
Not so in this case. Desert Sun Home Inspections has a challenging time when inspecting a newly constructed home.
Many times there is no one there to answer all the questions about the home. In this case the actual builder was there.
I would ask a question about an "issue" and he would say "We missed that" or he would say We forgot that".
When building a new home, you cannot do just that. Miss things or forget things.
Here are two examples of why you don't just miss things or forget things.
Here we have a missing dryer vent hood. i did find the hood inside by the water heater. It was broken and in disrepair. I told the builder to replace the unit with a single flapper type of hood.
Here we have a beam across the front entry way that was not finished out. The ends of the beam are open and will let the insects get in.
"We Must have missed that".
Attention to detail is what home building is all about. I hate being the bearer of bad news for anyone. Even the buyers who think the new home should be in perfect shape when I inspect it.
Have a great day everyone.
