In addition to the 6 Tips mentioned in the above article, you should have a HOME INSPECTION done on your new construction home purchase. New construction does not mean it is without defects or flawless. If the home on the lot you choose has not been built yet, some home inspectors can inspect the property during the construction phase. Just make sure that the inspection is done in such a manner that it will not void the builder’s home warranty.
If the home inspection reveals that the construction is sound, you will have that much more peace of mind. If the home inspection reveals certain flaws or mistakes, you can have them corrected or remedied by the builder.
