By the time your dream home has been framed, your builder should have scheduled an inspection. I highly recommend you hire your own inspector as well. Any home inspector should have the ability to look at the frame and find issues. If you don’t know a home inspector ask your real estate agent. I have a team of inspectors that I recommend for my clients that are buying homes. Many times my clients rely on my expertise when purchasing their dream home and I take that very seriously. During a normal resale transaction there is a due diligence period of 10 business days where a team of inspectors make recommendations or requirements for passing inspections. At which point, the buyer makes a request to the seller and they can further negotiate.
When you are in the building process of your home things work a little different. You have to be there for each phase of construction. If not you may pass up the opportunity to make changes or you may see something that doesn’t match the floor plan when you started. If you look at the picture above you will see (the cutest real estate agent ever) and orange paint marking where doors will be installed and a “c” for carpet. Sometimes you might see the markings to show where a door should be but there are studs there! No worries that’s what inspections are for. As a buyer you have to communicate with your project manager or foreman because chances are they have seen a lot of floor plans and might not see where a door should be or where a gas line should be for the gas stove you upgraded to.Once the builders have framed your house and the roof is up, there is a small window before they begin the plumbing, wiring, and electrical lines. Always be careful when going on to the job site. Many of the workers are up in the rafters and don’t notice when people are walking through. They might be using their saws with hearing protection so make sure you get eye contact and wave to make sure it’s okay to enter.

""I was referred to Steve in the late part of 2015 from a co-worker that bought a house and at the time I was mentally ready to buy but my credit scores/budget was not. I called Steve back in 2015 to get information which he gave me some financial companies to try but at that time I could not get the financial approval. I told Steve at that time that I needed to work on my credit scores and I will call him back. Again this was 2015…. Thinking that I would never hear from him again since I was not prepared, Steve continued to call me every few months to check on the status of my situation and he continued to give me feedback, general information and tips along the way. Not only was I a single parent with a poor credit score, but I had faced some other challenges such as 2 surgeries in 2016 and a job layoff. Thankfully, through all of this, I continued to payoff credit cards and work on my credit score and finally in July of 2017, I got the approval I needed to purchase my very first home. And of course, the first person I called was Steve! Let’s face it, relationships don’t even last as long as the relationship Steve and I established in finding my 1st home. The customer service and communication that Steve provided is rare in this day and age. Thankfully I closed on my very first house 2 weeks ago and I am overjoyed with excitement that I am able to provide a home for my child. Steve was with me every step of a way and is a testimony for others out there looking to acquire home ownership or for the ones that feel it will never happen. I would recommend Steve Slavich with the Exit Realty team any day and will continue to place my trust in him for any future real estate endeavors that I may embark upon. Thanks Steve!""
