Once you decide to build a dream home, make your New Home Construction Contract contingent on a final home inspection by a professional and legitimate home builder you hire. Never assume that because a home is newly constructed, it isn't going to have defects. Yes its new but definitely you can still see some minor defects. If possible, please initiate a by phase home inspection and punchlist, where potential problems are easier to spot and easier to work on. If the builder objects to this, consider it a red flag. Protect yourself with warranties. All new homes come with an implied warranty from the builder stipulating that any major defect of the structural integrity of the home must be repaired. Ask for a builder's warranty for a period of time following move-in that covers any defects in craftsmanship. Home warranties vary in length, what they cover and typically run from one to 10 years; the manufacturer covers appliance warranties. Make sure any warranty you receive explicitly states what is covered and what isn't, and what the limitations for damages are. For extra peace of mind, have your real estate attorney look over the warranty to make sure it's kosher. When you build with Homechoice Planners, all these aspects and essentials are properly and thoroughly discussed prior to signing a contract. Be assured that every cent of your investment is accounted.
