The importance of a home inspection on a new house..just because you are buying a new home doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t get a home inspection. It’s my recommendation that you get a home inspection every time. Here are the reasons: What if there were problems with the foundation, plumbing, wiring etc. Just because it’s brand new doesn’t mean that the contractor that was building the house did it correctly. The final permit that was signed off doesn’t mean that the contractor did his job correctly and the building departments don’t always do a good job checking these items. Down the road issues are what you want to avoid. It’s a little money for the large investment that you are securing. Spend the money for your future investment!
