First Of All, What Does A Building Inspector Do?

At Premium Pre-Purchase Building Inspections, our professional building inspection team will assess your chosen property; looking for defects and provide you with a detailed list of what is wrong – both major and minor. Every member of our inspection team has extensive industry experience and knowledge, so you can rest assured you are in reliable hands!

The principal advantages of acquiring the services of a building inspector are:

1. Know what the problems are. By understanding any issues within the property, you can assess whether or not they are significant enough to influence your decision to buy. You can also establish what repair costs might be.

2. Negotiate. It is where you can gain leverage. By better understanding the home’s condition, you can endeavour to negotiate a better price if you are going through a private sale.

3. Seek good advice. A building inspector will provide vital information of the defects, and which experts to call to fix them. At this point, you can ascertain how these issues could affect property in the long haul and what the repairs could involve.

The advantages of having a building inspection are quite clear, but not all purchase procedures are the same. So, here’s the question to ask: when should a building inspector visit?

Pre-Purchase Building Inspections

When you’re in the market to buy, it can be an exciting time! However, this excitement should not be the reason for you to go ahead and buy the first home that gets your attention. At Premium Pre-Purchase Building Inspections, we will provide you with an in-depth understanding of your desired property’s defects and how severe they are before signing on the dotted line.

Pre-Auction Building Inspections

The same applies to homes that are up for auction. You can organise for our team to head out and inspect a property before auction day so you can ensure you are making a confident bid.

Pre-Sale Building Inspections

If you’re thinking about selling your property, we can help you achieve the best possible price! Our team will come, inspect your property and provide you with a list of things that you may want to change or fix before putting your home on the market. A bonus to a pre-sale inspection is that you can present your potential buyers with the report; instilling confidence in them and potentially resulting in a quicker sale.

If you’re thinking about buying a new Victorian property or selling your existing one, a building inspection is the only way to go! Give The Premium Pre-Purchase Building Inspections team a call today!
