If you're buying a home in Brisbane, Ipswich or Gold Coast, organise a Building Inspector as soon as possible after signing your purchase contract. Selling your home, we recommend an inspection prior to placing your home on the market if you're selling your house or unit. In the case of building your own home, you will require stage inspections based on your contract.
All of our Building and Pest Inspections come with Free Thermal Imaging and are carried out by professional and qualified Building Inspectors. Within 24 hours, we will provide a detailed building report loaded with photographs, supporting evidence and recommendations to supplement your decision making in regards to your potential or existing property. Armed with this information you can then make an informed decision regarding you home purchase.

The to-do list before putting your home on the market or looking to buy a property can be exhausting. Although it may be an extra expense, getting a building inspection will arm you with knowledge on the property to help you make confident decisions. When buying a home or buying a new property, an inspection will form part of the sales contract. If selling a property, the inspection will help you know what to fix so you can boost the listing price of your home if you choose so. If buying a property, a building and pest inspection will address any potential costs you may not have seen when looking for a home.
The inspection will include fences, yard, building interior and exterior, sub floor, roof exterior and roof voids. Because building and pest inspection organisations are guided by the Workplace Health and Safety laws, they will not always get into your roof and inspect it if it is not safe to do so. If this is the case, they will inspect the roof from a ladder if possible, but they will not neglect to put it in the report. One does not have to worry if the inspection will be graded because that is not what it's about. Because an inspection is just to check the condition of your home, inspectors will report on the physical conditions of the home and what may need to be replaced or repaired. To ensure that the inspectors conduct a thorough inspection of your home, remove any distractions and obstacles, where possible remove posters and pictures from the wall, move your furniture away from the wall and open the garage door, secure the family pets.
*ABIS Building and Pest Inspections include reporting on structural building defects – in accordance with Australian Standards AS4349.1
Getting the best building and pest inspection in Brisbane will ensure that there is no bias in the report, giving you confidence on the decision you make regarding your home. The building and pest inspection is not a guarantee, warranty or insurance policy because some problems may only be discovered after living in the house or once the property is vacant. That being said before you make one of the biggest financial decisions of your life it would be prudent to get as much information as possible to make an informed decision. ABIS will provide you with that peace of mind with good old fashioned customer service, an extensive knowledge base and quality reports. Buy with Confidence with ABIS the Building and Pest Inspectors you can trust.
It depends on the type of home, but typically between $300 and $600 for a combined building and timber pest (termite) inspection. A typical price for an average home would be aroud $475. It is very important to also look at what you are getting for the price you are quoted. Not all inspections, inspectors or inspection reports are the same.
