Pre Purchase Building Inspection?


Buying a home is the single most expensive investment many of us will ever make. A home inspection is designed to provide the home buyer with the information they need to make a more informed decision about the property. The home inspection report should clearly identify any potential significant defects, and give the home buyer a realistic estimate of the costs of repairs so that they can be negotiated in an updated purchase contract. An inspection should also highlight any areas or features that need to be addressed in the near future which may be reaching the end of their useful life span.

What Is A Building Inspection?


According to Wikipedia, a home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home. The buyer uses the knowledge gained from the home inspection to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase.
The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection but does not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components.
It is not the job of the home inspector to estimate market value or to let you know you got a good deal on the price of the home. This is done typically through an appraiser.

Prices start from $330 for units or apartments and $440 for courtyard homes & small houses. This includes our written report.


Additional services include a Dropbox link for all photos taken of the house or unit, showing details of the inspection. Photos are particularly useful in explaining particular problems detailed in the report that may not be visible during a normal open house.


Overseas, interstate or absentee buyers find the link of 50 to 100 photos taken during the inspection a valuable resource when dealing with issues such as replacement of appliances or water heaters.
