HERE'S A STORY...

Here is a cautionary tale for buyers in the market for a newly constructed home. Here is a newly built home a client was interested in purchasing. Anyone would have expected everything to be flawless  and in proper working order, upon a closer look we saw that was not the case.



 
 
 

We came to discover the home was experiencing plumbing issues related to low water pressure throughout the home, as well as no water flow to the hose bibs outside. So we immediately searched for the  main water supply cut off valve and water pressure regulator, but could not find them. At which point we contacted the builder who also could not find them, to discover they were buried under concrete and had to be dug up in several areas immediately outside the home.

The moral of the story is that if the client followed the advice of the manger of the subdivision and continued the purchase without a home inspection just because it is a new home as they were pressured to do, they would have been stuck with a very expensive home and a huge problem.

END OF STORY.
