Lower the risks with a comprehensive home and property inspection

One of the most important things you will need to do before you buy a property is to have it meticulously inspected from top to bottom. The saying, ‘better to be safe than sorry’ has never been more relevant than in the real estate market. People buy homes on the assumption that they’re in perfect condition, only to later discover the many problems that end up costing hundreds upon thousands of dollars to fix.

A common mistake most people make when buying property in Melbourne is that they think with their hearts – if the location, appearance, and price is right, people are quick to sign on the dotted line. However, they don’t see the bigger picture – a pre-purchase inspection can help you make a logical decision by reporting on the condition of the property.

Why you need an exterior building inspection before you buy in Melbourne

Unfortunately, there are dodgy real estate agents who will try to convince you that the property you are looking at is in perfect condition, when it is anything but. A building inspection can assess a range of exterior elements, such as:

  • Swimming pools are examined for cracks and leaks
  • Checking siding, trims, gutters, chimneys and decks
  • Garage, carports, and garden sheds
  • Doors, windows, and fences
  • Exterior steps
  • Paths and driveways
  • Structural cracking in brickwork
  • Rusting roof or beams
