We all know about property inspections and open homes, but there’s another type of inspection that all buyers can easily organise that could potentially save a lot of drama and headaches post-purchase. Having a pest and building inspection completed prior to signing on the dotted line will give you peace of mind that you’re getting what you’re paying for, and ensure you don’t wind up with a well styled home that’s actually full of problems just below the surface.
A building and pest inspection will cost you a fee, but we believe this is a small price to pay when you consider the enormity of the investment you’re making when you buy a home. Whether the house is going to be yours to live in and you want to reap the benefits of living in a sound house, or you’re buying it as an investment and don’t want the hassle of maintenance issues and fed up tenants, it only makes sense that anyone buying a house wants to do so without coming up against nasty surprises down the track.
If you are planning to buy at Auction, remember the building and pest inspection will needed to be done prior to the Auction time, as you will not have the luxury of adding an additional clause on the contract once the hammer goes down.
If you are selling real estate in Bacchus Marsh, it’s a really good idea to have your own Building and Pest inspection done prior to putting your home on the market and making it available for buyers to peruse. This has two large benefits. Firstly, it will give buyers instant peace of mind as they look through your home, and secondly, if any problems do show up in the inspection you will know in time to do something about them – before buyers are trying to negotiate thousands off the price.
