Online search is the way property is bought and sold. Property buyers are not only initiating their decision-making process online, but are also demanding more of real estate professionals including valuations, searches, floor plans, photographs, and inspection reports. They will perform detailed research beforehand and they want instant access to all the information needed to make their decision.
Previously, a lot of the critical information upon which property contracts were conditional only came to light after the contract was signed and a building pre-purchase inspection conducted. In the meantime, everyone involved was negotiating in the dark. Any expensive surprises after the fact will lead to renegotiation or worse, the contract is cancelled.
Here at ABIS we want to change your building inspection experience to be simpler.
A Pre-Sale Building Inspection:
A pre-sale building inspection documents the condition of the property together with any problems that may need to be rectified and dealt with prior to listing. Providing a Pre-Sale Building Inspection Report gives the buyer a greater sense of confidence and certainty.
Transparency protects the listing price and gives the vendor a greater chance of more reliable offers which translate to a better selling price.This inspection protects both you and your vendor long after the contract has settled, from the buyer making any claims against you for misrepresenting the property and/or concealing defects.
Instead, by having a Building and Pest Inspection when their property is listed, vendors can rectify identified problems or develop a strategy to manage any potential threat these problems may pose to their sale. This enables everyone involved to better manage the transaction to reduce the risk of contracts falling through.
Besides, satisfied buyers who don’t end up with costly surprises become repeat clients who will recommend you to others. Pre-Sale Building Inspections reduce litigation, demonstrate integrity and provide you with the added value of the referral. Suggesting a building inspection lets your clients know that, as a professional, you are genuinely concerned with their best interests.
Advantages of a Pre-Sale Building Inspection
- The vendor knows in advance exactly what is going to be in their purchaser’s Building and Pest Report which strengthens their negotiating position. This will improve the speed, price and likelihood of their sale.
- The buyer avoids expense in time and money by having a better understanding of the property they are purchasing up front.
- You are fully informed from the beginning and can manage the sale process, even when there are problems with the property.
