Buying New? Don’t Expect Perfection

As much as we feel we’d like to control every piece of the building of our new home, realistically the house won’t be perfect when it’s complete. For example, the quality of wood used to frame the walls of your home is just not what it used to be. You’ll see knot holes, crooked boards, perhaps what look like curious framing practices, and so on. Unless you see significant problems, however, remember that each step of the build process has been inspected not only by the foreman in charge of your project, but also by the local building inspector who should be keeping an eye on things to be sure that the local building codes have been met. If you do see problems, be sure to bring them to the attention of your own Broker/Agent who will assist you in working out any issues with the builder.
