Types of Property Inspections

Pre-Purchase inspection – for the home buyer

When you walk away from your dream property you remember the shining mirrors, spotless surfaces and sun filled rooms. Many people make the mistake of buying on these “honeymoon” feelings without a thorough independent building inspection. While you wander through the house imagining it as your own, our pre-purchase inspectors check 350 items and over 1200 possible faults.

By using technology to follow a rigorous procedure, nothing goes unnoticed and we find at least one problem in each pre-purchase inspection. That’s not to say the house is not your perfect home. By attending the inspection, we can show you all the faults and explain the repair process, so your perfect home doesn’t come with any surprises.

Unfortunately, according to statistics, unexpected repairs or “surprises” cost new owners an average $4500. Money that would have previous been used to upgrade appliances, or splurge on some decor will now have to be used on repairs. With an IPI pre purchase inspection, you can incorporate any repairs and maintenance into the sale price so that “little extra” leftover can be spent on making your new house a home.

An independent pre purchase inspection is also essential in making a fast, confident and fair offer. As a dependable company respected by building professionals, IPI can also connect you with a network of preferred tradesman who can supply quotes prior to negotiation. Therefore, the seller can incorporate exact costs into the price or agree to repair the property before settlement.

Independent Property Inspections guarantees a same day turnaround time for the pre purchase report, so you have your most important bargaining tool in time for negotiations.
