If you’re buying a brand-new car, would you buy a model with a big dent in the hood? The same mindset goes for home purchases because you should always “look past the paint.” It’s amazing what you’ll find.
In episode 3 of The Ride Along we shadow Julie Feigenson from TLC Home Inspections in Kyle, TX, a suburb of Austin, as she runs us through a new home build and key items to note. In particular:
- Are the appliances safe and ready to use?
- Is the electrical complete without any faulty switches?
- Are drain lines clean and free of grout and paint?
Plus, you won’t believe the three red flags she finds in the attic! Once you watch the episode, you’ll understand why it’s always a good idea to “look past the paint” and remind buyers that new construction doesn’t mean everything is perfect and move-in ready.
