Why A Pre-Purchase Building Inspection Is Essential For Your Brisbane Property

Whether you are looking to purchase an apartment in Brisbane, a townhouse in Springwood or a spacious house in Sandgate, a building inspection before you buy is effectively an insurance policy for you. When undertaken by a reputable company, like Action Inspections, the building inspection will check for defects in the property and can be done on their own or in conjunction with a pest inspection.

There are many good reasons why you should get a building inspection report done before you buy a property. Here are just a few well worth considering.

Know what you are buying

The Real Estate agent and home owner will do their very best to present a property to you in the best light. Furniture will be arranged with precision, and walls may have been given a fresh coat of paint to look brand spanking new, however do you really know what you are buying?

Before you make one of the biggest financial investments in life, organising a building inspector to give your potential new home a thorough once-over will ensure that there are no nasty surprises lurking behind the walls, in the roof or under the floors.

Buying power

Believe it or not, even if a home presents itself with an inspection report that is not free of concerns, it does not mean it is the end. This could in fact be the perfect opportunity for you to use these findings as buying power. Being able to negotiate a lower price because of the fact that you have to pay to repair the problems reported, could actually be a positive step forward.

Professional advice on a property that needs attention

Many homebuyers seek out opportunities to purchase houses in Brisbane (or the Greater Brisbane Area) that need a complete overhaul. Even in these instances when you know there will be a lot of work to be done, it is still advisable to organise a pre purchase building inspection.

By having a professional offer specialist advice about the major problems the property presents and guidance as to how they could be addressed you are actually empowering yourself and ensuring your renovations are undertaken with much more informed decisions.

Think of a building inspection on your Brisbane property as the perfect opportunity to get an accurate overview on the home or apartment that you are hoping to purchase.
