Is it a good idea to get a home inspection for a new build? I don't know anything about home building so how can I know if its been done right?
It's a good idea to have a home inspected prior to purchase even if it's a new build. Mistakes are made during construction and you need to be aware of them. Good luck!

ReMax is charging $400 JUNK FEE to home buyers. I didn't find out about the fee until I went to put in an offer on a home.
You can simply refuse to pay those junk fees. In most cases, the Agent will either dismiss it or pay it out of their commission.
If neither happens, tell the Agent that they are fired ... more
