When thinking about purchasing a property, it’s important to know exactly what you’re paying for. In Ipswich, building and pest inspections are commonly used to ensure properties meet regulatory standards to save new homeowners from a nasty housewarming surprise. These building and pest inspections are often conducted at the request of prospective buyers, however, as a property owner looking to sell, having a pest inspection report can help to boost interest and secure offers. These reports serve as proof of the property’s structural integrity and cleanliness depending on the type of inspection.
Why Your Ipswich Home Needs A Building & Pest Inspection
It has been found that 1 in 4 Australian homes will experience a termite infestation in its lifetime and will only be revealed when the property is under scrutiny. What’s more, studies have shown that such an infestation is likely to decrease the value of a home by more than 20%. Based on a small sample of Australians, a study has shown that 74% of potential home buyers feel compelled to remove a property from their shortlist altogether if they suspected a termite infestation. This means that, as a homeowner looking to sell, you could lose out on 20% of your expected ROI or worse still lose prospective buyers altogether.
