Should I Get a Home Inspection on a New Home? | KT Confidential EP 136

On this podcast, episode 136, Adrian and Ariel discuss if home-buyers should get a home inspection on a new home. Short answer, yes! Obviously, you’d do your homework on its condition before agreeing to buy it for a certain amount.

A house inspection on a new home is highly recommended, according to experts. With the exception of the cost of hiring someone to do it, almost every consideration goes into the “pro” column. (And then there’s the potential that the inspector will discover a flaw — but that’s information that any savvy buyer would value, right?)

One of the reasons a buyer would be enticed to purchase a new construction home is the idea that it will be free of faults common in older homes, such as obsolete plumbing or electrical systems, as well as visual flaws. However, even if a home is brand new, it can still have problems; in fact, problems in a home can sometimes be a direct result of its new construction status.

So the primary point is that buyers should not believe that their new home will be perfect simply because it is brand new. This is why we highly recommend getting a home inspection on a new home.

The founders, Ariel Kormendy and Adrian Trott, started The Kormendy Trott Team, a real estate team based out of Halton region in Ontario, after both being in need of a change from their successful careers in the automotive industry and both experiencing the lack of service being provided in the real estate industry. They kicked off their careers in 2011 and quickly became a top-performing team in the country, ranking 17th of approximately 200 for Century 21 in 2017; as a team of just the two of them compared to much larger teams. They decided that they needed to take their team from being real estate agents in Milton to the rest of the GTA and beyond by expanding and servicing more areas. The team has since grown to have an administrative arm, media department and successful sales team operating a smooth running and successful business.
