One of the biggest mistakes when buying a new home is assuming that everything in the house will work perfectly because the home is brand new. No matter how good the builder is, there is no such thing as a perfect house. Problems always can crop up.
Even after you’ve gone over the builder’s punch list and you feel everything is resolved, issues can still crop up. The frustration occurs when you have gone through the punch list, every issue has been addressed and you’ve now ended the relationship with the builder. And all of a sudden there’s a problem. For example your hot water tank is not adequate to supply sufficient hot water for all four of your family members take a shower at the same time. Or a circuit breaker shuts down because you’ve now turned on too many appliances and televisions.
