House Pre-Sale Inspection

Buildqual divider

Before you decide to present your home or investment property to the market for sale, we encourage you to obtain a pre-sale home inspection assessment from BuildQual. Our comprehensive reports will highlight any issues with the structure, to enable you to complete any potential remedial work. You can then present the report to your real estate agent, showing clearly the state of the property, and therefore making your house even more attractive to potential buyers.

What do we look for?

When we assess a property, our qualified inspectors cover the entire dwelling, working methodically through a detailed checklist. As part of our assessment, we check:

  • Moisture readings
  • Wall alignment
  • Major structural defects and faults
  • Minor structural defects
  • Expected future maintenance
  • Floor levels – on an as-required basis and at extra cost.

Our Standard Residential Assessment dictates that we then provide the purchaser with a photographic record of the home, along with a full building report, and a detailed damage assessment.

Obtaining a property report can be particularly beneficial in auction or tender situations, due to the short time frame for buyers’ to be able to make an unconditional offer. We highly recommend this service to all home sellers, to provide to their real estate agents as a proven sales tool.

What we offer you…

A quality, easy to understand, jargon-free building inspection report, within 48 hours (often 24 hours) of us visiting your property. We give you more for less.

The report contained all of the necessary information to satisfy our curiosity about the property, as well as providing valuable details relating to the earthquake damage and the suggested remedial paths required.

I have in excess of 20 years in the real estate industry and cannot recommend clients enough, whether buyers or sellers, engaging a reputable company for a builders inspection and report on either the property they are buying or selling.

Thanks for the report, we would recommend you guys to anyone – great service, easy to deal with, very detailed inspection.

I found you guys though another report you did on a property at […] we were looking to buy and thought you did a very good job on that.
