Melbourne’s Most Comprehensive House Inspections

If you’re looking for the perfect house around Melbourne, there is nothing more important than ensuring you conduct a new home building inspection. These inspections allow for potential property owners to find out if there are any abnormalities in a property they are interested in. Uncovering such an issue allows for a potential owner to save huge amounts of money that would have otherwise been needed to be spent on fixing severe issues in the house.

Building Masters offer a very comprehensive report as part of our house inspection, which we believe is completely necessary in properly understanding the physical state of a building. House inspections, in addition to saving you money in the long term, are an effective approach to risk management, dispute resolution, and much more.

Our building inspections involve the careful inspection of the interior, exterior and subfloor of your property. When we assess your particular building, we are also able to suggest a response to your report. As an example, we can suggest future approaches to things like renovations and extensions. A thorough house inspection can save you thousands, so we can’t recommend one enough!

When it comes to buying something as big as a new home, you always want to make sure that everything is up to standard before you hand over the money and get handed the keys.

That’s where we come in. Our team of dedicated staff are able to provide detailed yet easy to understand reports that inform you of all the underlying defects of your potential new home. Not only does this help you decide whether to buy or walk, but it can help you negotiate a lower price than the one the seller may be asking for.

Unparalleled customer service

Buying a new house is a daunting prospect at the best of times, especially if it’s your very first property. Many young couples for example, tend to feel that the entire home buying process is stacked against them – which it is. Every professional involved in the process, from lawyers to conveyancers, buyers to vendors and real estate agents, are all interested in one thing and one thing alone – making a profit. If they are successful in convincing you to purchase a property then they stand to make a commission and at the end of the day, this is their primary objective.

Building inspectors, on the other hand, have no such biases and are purely concerned with doing the right thing by the potential home buyers. They are obliged to be forthright with their findings and completely transparent with any reports, meaning you get the truth and not some over inflated sales pitch. A building inspector still gets paid the same regardless of whether the property is sold or not, which means they stand to gain nothing by misleading a home buyer.

Over the years, we have helped hundreds of property owners and buyers alike in Building Inspections across Hoppers Crossing and the greater Melbourne area, making sure that they don’t pay too much for any potential property and proving time and time again that we are one of Melbourne’s most trusted Building Inspection companies.

We provide prompt and detailed building reports with a price-beat-guarantee for a service of similar detail so you’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain. Contact us now on 1300 780 931.

Our reports provide a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the condition of your entire property in an easy to read format complete with images and estimated repair costs. All our building inspections are completed by highly trained and licensed builders who have decades of experience within the industry.

Whether you’re looking to buy an existing property, build a new home, renovate or invest, Building Masters Inspections has got you covered.

We also offer a property price re-negotiation service that can save you thousands

As an additional support to our clients, Building Masters offer a professional a last-minute Property Price Re-Negotiating service. Using the significant advantage of having prepared the Building Defect Report, in addition to our years of experience with the purchase of real estate, we are in a powerful position to negotiate a substantial discount on the property on your behalf.

The production of a comprehensive Building Defect Report is acknowledged as mandatory to a property buyer, but the negotiating opportunity the report can create is often left unrealised. Utilising the Building Defect Report to re-negotiate the purchase price – after the contract of sale has been signed- has typically been the province of the professional advocate – an expensive option for a buyer.

At Building Masters our senior staff have been engaged in building defect reporting and negotiating for decades –  and as such, providing a re-negotiating service in addition to our Inspection Report services is logical for us and highly effective for our clients.

It’s simple- after you have negotiated with the vendors agent to your best ability and signed the purchase contract and employed us to prepare a Building Defect Report, we will advise you to withdraw from the contract (under our guidance) following which, you can stand back and let our experienced  inspectors re-negotiate a discount on your behalf.

How it works:

  • Building Masters conduct the Full-Service building inspection of the property and prepare a Defect Report

  • If the report indicates unexpected expenses and you wish to continue with the purchase – but at the right price, you can appoint us to re-negotiate with the agent; this is normally possible and often successful in the cooling-off period with our repair costed defect report

  • Under our guidance, you withdraw from the signed contract in writing (subject to the contract conditions) normally doing so within the “3 Day Cooling-Off” period citing your consumer right to “change your mind”– this allows you to take a back-seat while we begin our negotiation routine

  • You then inform the Agent by email that the Building Inspectors Office has been formally appointed as your Representative and that any future communication must directed to us

  • For us to be effective we must be unencumbered – so we require that you cease communication with the Agent until re-negotiation between our office and the Agent has concluded

  • The next step, now you have withdrawn from the contract, is the provision of the Building Defect Report to the Agent – this is done by the Building Inspectors Office

  • The Agent will typically then show the report to the Vendor advising the sale may fall through; however, not wishing to lose their commission, the Agent will request the Vendor’s permission to re-negotiate by offering to “share the repair costs” between the parties and seek the Vendor’s authority to offer a discount on the purchase price in line with, or as a percentage of, the now disclosed building defect repairs and the associated costs

  • Having received approval from the Vendor to discount the price, the Agent will contact the Building Inspectors Office and the re-negotiation gets underway

Our Negotiating Experience

hands shaking over a contract

At Building Masters, we are experienced in handling Real Estate Agents – we know their tactics and their negotiating technique. Additionally, we have the benefit of being an independent third party (a significant negotiation strength). We know how to play the game; we have the knowledge and the credibility – we effectively hold the sale in the palm of our hands and the agent knows it.

On your behalf, we take control and put your interests on top – where they should be. Often our efforts produce a discount on the purchase price which exceeds our clients’ expectation. If you see it as we see it – you have nothing to lose and much to gain.

Please feel free contact us on 1300 780 931 should you wish to discuss this service in more detail.
