A Guide to House
If you’ve bought a few homes in your time you’ll already be aware of the value of house
inspections. Sydney homes come in all shapes, sizes and ages – and a few come with a multitude of potentially
expensive problems that you won’t see at a ‘home open’.
A professional property inspection is an essential tool in helping you make
the right decision when it comes to making a property purchase. By investing in a property inspection, you give
yourself the best chance of identifying any significant problems or defects affecting the property.
Are you aware of the potential value of property
inspections? Sydney homes can have a range of problems, particularly older homes. If you're planning on buying
a home in Sydney, investing in a property inspection is wise. Pre-purchase inspections help prospective buyers
establish any existing or potential problems with the property, and can help buyers make a more informed
decision about their purchase.
Property inspections vary somewhat depending on the property and on the
expertise of the inspector, but a standard inspection may take several hours. The inspector will examine various
areas of the house, and will note any areas where replacements, repairs or servicing might be required; or where
there appears to be damage, unapproved structures, or other concerns. A detailed written report will be provided to
the prospective buyer after the inspection.
