Pre Purchase Building and Pest Inspection
Floods, fires, storms, spine-tingling critters and pests, humidity, extreme heat and dodgy DIY. What do all of these things have in common? They take their toll on our properties, even if we can’t see them. For a homeowner, it's nerve-wracking. But do you know what else is nerve-wracking? It’s buying a property without considering Brisbane pre-purchase inspections for building and pest.
Brisbane properties aren’t perfect either, so let’s not just blame Mother Nature. As properties age, defects start to appear and cause problems. Unfortunately, new houses and renovated homes can hide problems thanks to poor workmanship and even just sheer human error.
We understand that buying or building a new home can be an arduous process; it can also be exciting. But sometimes when there’s excitement, rash decisions can be made. We call it ‘wearing your beer goggles.’ And what bad decision can you make when you’re wearing your beer goggles? You opt out of building and pest because everything ‘looks’ fine.
Hiring an inspector might feel like just another tick and flick but really, investing in a pre purchase building inspection could save you a whole lot of money and heartache.
