The main question that is on everybody’s mind when buying or selling a new home is: “is there any problems with the condition of the property?” When you’re looking to purchase a home, you’ll want to be sure that there are no problems with it that will end up costing you thousands. When you’re looking to sell a home, you’ll want to discover any problems that the property may have, and have them fixed before you put it on the market.
Checking that your property is in a good condition will require more than just the eye of the homeowner; you’ll need a professional building inspection or the property by someone who is heavily experienced in the area. Building inspectors are the ones to call for all inspections; whether they are pre-listing inspections or pre-purchase inspections.
In today’s market, there are thousands and thousands of properties through New Zealand for sale – giving potential home owners a wide selection to choose from. To stand out from the rest, and to improve your chances of selling, a property inspection can give that little bit of extra edge against the competition. By presenting interested buyers with a full building report, you will give them peace of mind that they won’t encounter any expenses because of a building problem any time soon.
When it comes to buying a property, you can give yourself peace of mind that there won’t be any ‘surprise problems’ after you have purchased the home. Although these building reports will cost a few hundred dollars, they can potentially save you from disaster and thousands of dollars needed in the future.
To ensure that you’re getting the best property inspection available, choose a building inspector that offers thermal imaging services in their reports. Infrared thermal imaging can show areas of dampness and moisture build up – the perfect tool for finding out whether a home is leaky or not.
