Pre-Sale Building & Pest Inspections
As a vendor, previously, much of the critical information upon which your contract was conditional only came to light after your contract was signed and a Pre-Purchase Inspection conducted. Both you and your buyer were negotiating in the dark, wasting money and time. Any surprises at this point meant renegotiation or worse still... your contract being cancelled.
Clients who are auctioning their homes also find it extremely useful and a good selling tool to have current building and pest inspection report/s available to prospective bidders before, and on the day of, auction. Documents the condition of your property and will identify problems that may need to be rectified and dealt with prior to listing your property. Providing a Pre-Sale Inspection Report gives your buyer a greater sense of confidence and certainty.
