If you are planning to sell or auction off your home, it is recommended that you do everything possible to avoid any nasty surprises in the form of structural faults that may not have been previously detected. One of the best ways to ensure that you have complete peace of mind when selling is to have us perform a pre-sale or pre-auction inspection on your property before putting it on the market.
What Does a Pre-Sale Inspection Involve?
These inspections are sometimes referred to as vendor inspections or pre-auction inspection as well, and they are the same reports that are given to prospective buyers. The only difference is that the vendor or real estate agent has access to these reports and any findings thereof before the sale takes place as well. After the inspections have been conducted, we will provide you and your real estate agent (if applicable) with the report and the findings thereof beforehand to help facilitate the sales process.
The inspection process will involve having our inspectors check all aspects of your home, such as the structure itself (roof, walls, foundations, doors, windows and flooring), electrical installations such as power distribution boards, plug points and appliance installations such as fridges, ovens and hot water systems. Anything that requires repairs or replacement will be brought to your attention.
Enjoy Seller Protection during the Negotiation Process
If you have decided to have a pre-sale inspection performed on your home, it will help ensure that you are made aware of any structural, plumbing or electrical faults that may be present before trying to sell it. It also provides you with one of the most valuable tools that are needed when it comes to deciding on a fair selling price. If you have had any renovations performed in the past or you live in an older home and have not yet had to replace any appliances or structural items as yet, chances are that there are at least a few non-compliant issues or even aging items such as hot water system that will need to be addressed and/or replaced.
Ensure a Smooth Sale
Instead of taking the risk of having your sale plans put on hold, or sores still, cancelled outright, why not take the necessary action and have us perform a pre-ale inspection on your home? Although it will cost money, it is guaranteed to be money that will be well-spent, because it will inevitably save you a lot of money and stress in the long run. You will also be providing potential buyers with the peace of mind they need in knowing that they will not have to foot the bill for large structural repairs shortly after moving into their new home.
