They say home is where the heart is… the place where memories and happy moments are made. Purchasing a home should be an exciting time, an anticipated time in everyone’s life. It should not be one of heartache and disappointment. Unfortunately, some new home owners are blindsided and it is not until the keys are handed over does the home tell the true story. Water problems, poor finishes, foundation movement and the list goes on. This is why a pre-purchase inspection is important, to ensure the home owner is aware of any hidden defects and to take the stress out of purchasing a new home.
Years from now, you will find yourself thankful that you had a pre purchase building inspection. Asking for the reason behind this statement? Check the following.
Why You Need Home Inspection when Buying a Property?
Of all the investments you could ever make in your life, buying real estate would probably be one of the very few that can make you feel proud and accomplished. It is the great Australian dream, a place to call your own. Because of this, purchasing a new home can be an emotional experience for most. Sometimes, this is why an independent inspector is important to take the emotion out of it and provide an unbiased opinion.
Here are the main advantages of having a pre purchase inspection.
Through home inspection, you can be warned of anything that can make you not want for a specific property.
Despite having an attractive exterior design, a home can be hiding a “dark secret” that to your bare eyes and vision could not distinguish at once.
A well- experienced home inspector can identify major and minor defects on a property. The inspector will inform you of any defects of the property before you buy.
