"The young woman's reply was: "I didn't realize you need to get a new home inspected." "
It's surprising how many purchasers of new construction assume that since it's new there can't be anything wrong.
This is an informal poll. Opinions appreciated. I was just finishing up a home inspection on a new construction home a few days before Christmas. A young couple walked up to the on-site builder and asked him if they could take a look at a home across the street.
Since my job was complete, I seized the opportunity to walk up to them and introduce myself. I told them I was in the neighborhood for a client who hired me to inspect their new home. The young woman's reply was: "I didn't realize you need to get a new home inspected."
I am certain that today more people comprehend the importance of an inspection whether the home is a re-sale or if it is new construction. Unfortunately, these folks didn't get the memo.
Inspector associations like ASHI admit they don't have the marketing dollars for radio or TV public service announcement spots. I would think a powerful group like the NAR would, but they are going to focus on a macro approach which is to sell more homes.
So, who should be educating these uninformed consumers? I think the answer is each of us. Whether your a Realtor, an inspector, or someone who has benefited from the services of a home inspector.
Feel free to check out a sample inspection report if you would like to find out more about inspections and new homes.
