How a Pre-Sale inspection report for current owners-sellers, may help increase your chances of a property sale, considerably!

All Building Inspections are carried out personally by Peter Weddell owner/operator of Qld Home Buyers Inspection Service.

You can be assured of receiving a detailed, unbiased report from a trusted person in the industry that many leading Solicitors, Banks and Councils have used and recommended since 1978.

How a pre-sale inspection may help improve your chances of selling

  • Identify potential deal breaker problems before listing your property so you have the opportunity of rectifying them or pricing the property accordingly.
  • Avoid fabricated or overstated problems by the prospective buyer (or their Inspector) to reduce the sale price with overinflated prices on rectification.
  • Advice on what you can rectify economically or alter (yourself) without requiring Council approval.
  • Recommendations on preventative maintenance, to avoid potential problems occurring also how to maintain the property for the long-term.
  • Have the opportunity to remove linings and/or stored items to assess extent of problems and have them rectified or quoted on, more accurately.
  • Compare problems with similar buildings of its age and type to put problems in perspective.
  • The report may include the possibility of illegal structures, extensions and or alterations that may require Council approval. This would help you in obtaining the appropriate searches, before listing the property.
  • Extensive use of photos throughout the report to put problems in perspective and give you a much better understanding.
  • Help you in producing a portfolio on the house, to pass onto a prospective buyer.
  • Have access to the Inspector for advice, long after the inspection has been carried out.

The above items may help a future sale go through smoothly

A pre-sale existing owner report can also benefit home owners that are not intending selling their property. 

By identifying problems, with suggestions on preventative maintenance also advice on how to maintain their property, for the long term. With access to the inspector, help in not getting ripped off by unscrupulous trades-people!

The danger of selling your property without a pre-sale report?

  • A potential buyer’s inspector identifies major problems that could be used as a legitimate reason to terminate a sale.
  • The buyer negotiates the purchase price down considerably to compensate them for expensive problems they had not allowed for and were not made aware of before signing a contract.
  • By not having a pre-sale report and being forewarned of any major problems, you cannot put a fair price on the property.
  • A potential buyer is more likely to speculate on the severity, extent and cost of rectifying major problems when they are concealed and the degree of problem is unknown.

A pre-sale existing owner report will help eliminate most of these hurdles by identifying the major problems and (if necessary) suggest having linings removed in any affected areas to allow for more accurate quotes and repairs, before listing the property.
