New Construction : Do You Need A Home Inspection? Representation?

New Construction Homes are big business here in the Treasure Valley.  If you can't find what you like in the existing home inventory there are other options.  There are many (currently 534 as of 4/1/17) homes under construction or already built "spec" homes by various builders in Ada County.  There are also 275 vacant subdivision lots being advertised by builders for "to be built" homes as well as many vacant lots available to purchase and build a custom home on.  There are many options in Canyon County as well.

We here at Jon Gosche Real Estate have sold many, many new construction spec and custom built homes over the years.  Some buyers think that you just need to go directly to the builder, but we are here to tell you it is important that you have your own representation and we've got you covered!  Building a home can be both fun & frustrating.  There are many moving parts and going it alone is difficult.  As your buyer's agent in a new construction we represent your best interest and are your advocate throughout the process.  



We have many stories to tell, but one notable one is a new construction home that we recommended our buyer get a home inspection on. (We always recommend home inspections, even on new construction.  Many builders claim you don't need to get one since there is a warranty and they are newly built - what could be wrong, right?) This particular home it was found that the builder didn't plumb the cold water pipes.  You read that correctly!  A week or so before closing the builder had to tear into all of the sheet rock and pipe in what had been missed.  Can you imagine moving into your new home and realizing there was no cold water?  Seems like an unreal story, how could something like that be missed, right?  Well, it happens.  And we are right by your side to help when hiccups like this occur.  We'd love to help.


If you are in the market for a home for a new home give my team a call.
