What I'm Seeing Now

New Construction - $1M+ - You'd Think They'd Do Better

New construction - $1M+ - you'd think they'd do better.

Everything was high end - materials, appliances, and there was an elevator to all four floors.

The HVAC professional drew an arrow to attempt to inform the buyer which way the air was flowing.

This is so an air filter can be put in with the air flow arrow pointing in the right direction.

Air ALWAYS flows toward the unit.

But this "professional" drew the arrow in the wrong direction!

The yellow arrow is mine.  I put it there so I could put this photo on the report.

Of course we talked about it during the inspection and how to properly insert the filter.

We both just shook our heads.

You'd think when you spend so much money buying a house that the little things would be properly taken care of.

But think again!

My recommendation:  keep in mind that new construction requires a home inspection.  No matter the price!  Be circumspect!  Call an informed and certified home inspector who sees the big and little things.  And in Northern Virginia insist on Jay Markanich.
