Buyer Home Inspection
New Home – 1 Year Warranty Inspection
Builders are required to offer a one year warranty on a new home. Before the warranty period expires, the homeowner needs to identify and inform the builder of any problems for correction. The warranty inspection should be conducted at approximately the 11th month of the warranty period. A warranty inspection will document problems with the home while the builder is still responsible.
Your report will document all the problem areas for discussion with your builder. The report will be separated by trade/component so the builder can easily identify what needs to be repaired and you can easily track completed repairs. Protect your investment and call us now to schedule your inspection. Don’t end up paying out of your pocket later when the builder is responsible now.

Your buyers will likely hire their own inspector. However, there are many benefits to the sellers finding out NOW what the buyer’s inspector is going to find at the 11th hour of the home buying and negotiation process.

- It helps you price your home realistically. It permits you to make repairs ahead of time so that …
- Defects won’t become negotiating stumbling blocks
- You have the time to get reasonably priced contractors (or make the repairs yourself if qualified) on your terms and at your convenience
- It may alert you to items of immediate personal concern such as safety items, hazardous items and/or major repairs
- It may relieve prospect’s concerns and suspicions
- It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement. You know the history of whether or not there have been any water problems in the basement, but you likely wouldn’t know about a roof leak until an inspector observed the leak from inside the attic
