when I do an inspection for a new home, when scheduling the appointment, I mention to the buyer to pick up a package of the little sticky tabs they come in a pack 5 colors and about 20 strips per color. I tell the client that I am not there to do a cosmetic inspection, though if I see something that should be taken care of, I will point them out, but explain that they should make a list, mark it, and discuss the issues with the builder. I do recommend to the buyer that if they have the choice of them coming back before move in, or after move in, to take care of cosmetic issues to put it in writing and have them come back after the move in, as we all know we all knick the walls when moving items, then to compose a list of other cosmetic items for the 1 year walk through if the builder offers one. I will note however, bowed walls, eneven flooring, cracks in cement, sealing entries into houses from electric, cable and refrigerant lines, knicks in steps, and those type of items. I always have a pack of sticky tabs in case they forget theirs. On one 1/2 million dollar CONDO in the city, the client used a whole package. and was still making a list when I left, needless to say, the builder wasn’t happy with me providing the tabs!!!
