Q:   Do I really need a home inspection on a new home, won't the builder's warranty cover any issues?

A:   Even if you are buying a new home, it is still recommended to have a home inspection. While it is true that the builder's warranty may cover some issues, it is not a guarantee that all issues will be covered. A home inspection can help identify any potential problems that may not be immediately visible, such as structural issues or problems with the electrical or plumbing system. It can also help identify any code violations or safety hazards. In addition, having a home inspection can give you peace of mind and help you make an informed decision about whether or not to proceed with the purchase.

Q:  Is a Move-In Certified or Pre-Listing Inspection necessary? 

A:  Getting a pre-listing inspection can be beneficial for several reasons. First, it can help identify any potential issues or repairs that may need to be addressed before putting your home on the market. This can help you avoid surprises during the negotiation process, and can potentially save you money by allowing you to make repairs on your own terms rather than being forced to make them during the transaction.  Second, it can give you an advantage in the market by providing a level of transparency to potential buyers. By having an inspection report to share with interested buyers, you can demonstrate that you've taken good care of your home and are selling it in good faith.  Finally, a pre-listing inspection can help streamline the selling process by reducing the amount of time required for negotiation and inspection contingencies. This can help make the transaction smoother and less stressful for both parties.  Overall, a pre-listing inspection can be a valuable investment that can help you sell your home more efficiently and effectively.
