> Real Estate > Building inspections: giving you peace of mind when buying or selling
Whether you are buying or selling a property, the most common question that people will have on their mind is "does the property have anything wrong with it?" If you're looking to buy a home, this question will be on your mind because you don't want to purchase a property that will end up costing you thousands in repairs. If you're looking to sell your home, you'll want to be aware of any repairs needed before putting the property on the market, and have them fixed immediately.
To have your property professionally inspected, you'll need the services of a building inspector - this is because they can find problems that aren't visible to the naked eye. Building inspectors are usually heavily experienced in the building industry - some are usually former builders. So whether you need a pre purchase inspection or a pre listing inspection, call upon the services of a local property inspector.
In today's market, potential home buyers have thousands and thousands of properties available to choose from. By already having a property inspection, you are giving these people the peace of mind that they are looking for when searching for a great home. After your building inspection, if there are any problems in your home, you can choose to either amend them or lower your sale price accordingly.
When it comes to buying a property, you can give yourself peace of mind that there won't be any 'surprise problems' after you have purchased the home. Although these building reports will cost a few hundred dollars, they can potentially save you from disaster and thousands of dollars needed in the future.
To ensure that you're getting the best property inspection available, choose a building inspector that offers thermal imaging services in their reports. Infrared thermal imaging can show areas of dampness and moisture build up - the perfect tool for finding out whether a home is leaky or not.
