Pre-Purchase Building Inspections

When buying a home, it's what you can't see which may hurt you. A trained eye will be able to see things which look good on an open inspection. Most houses are in good condition, however, do you want to risk your hard earned money on a home with defects? Even a new home has them, the older your home is, the more opportunity to miss potentially costly faults there is. Peace of mind is only a few hundred dollars away, a small cost when you are spending hundreds of thousands!

Pre-Sale Building inspections

You can find out what may need attention before you list your home on the market. Remove the negotiation of the buyer by knowing exactly what they will want to talk you down with, have serviceable items repaired before the buyer sees them and drops their offer. You know it's good, show them it's good with a report which proves it.

Builders Defect Inspections

When Building a home, have a tradie go through the home and provide a report to the builder on the items which need repair or fixing before you get hand over. A careful eye will pick things which need finishing off and a little more attention to make your new home just as good as the display home.

Testimonials

"We required a building inspection carried out on a property some distance from Adelaide, so my wife contacted Paul, from Adelaide Inspect-A-Home. He was extremely helpful and understanding and agreed to conduct an inspection immediately as settlement was approaching on our current house. His report was thorough, detailed, and easy to read and understand. In fact Paul also took considerable time to walk me through the report, and answer any questions that we had, even well after his report had been presented. We have no hesitation in recommending Paul from Adelaide Inspect-A-Home to anyone one looking for a home inspection, and the peace of mind that this has given us. good as the display home"

The real estate agent even made a comment on how thorough and professional you were and they too were very impressed with you.
