Blackwood Building Inspections – Why do I Need One?

Venture only 15 minutes to the South East of Adelaide, and you’ll find yourself immersed in the suburb of Blackwood. Located in the foothills, this leafy suburb has some of the best scenery Adelaide has to offer. With reasonably priced properties in a location that is central, yet remote, Blackwood is genuinely one of the states hidden gems.

 

Many residents have stated that the vibrant and diverse food and retail centre available to locals is just the start of why Blackwood is such a desirable place to live. Whether you want to relax, shop, play or work Blackwood has got the lot!

 

However, with such a nature-rich landscape there are some things you may wish to look out for when purchasing a Blackwood property. Detail Building Inspections will perform a thorough home inspection of the property to identify any areas of concern that may cost you money in the long run.

 

Risk of Bushfires

 

With each street home to an abundance of foliage, it is wise that the residents of Blackwood are bushfire ready. As part of our building inspection process, we will identify any areas of the home’s external environment that may present as a fire risk, in order to allow you to prepare in case of the unfortunate happening. While fierce Australian bushfires are unforgiving, investing the time to minimise your home’s risk can make all the difference.

Looking to Sell?

We don’t just offer our pre-purchase building inspection services to potential home buyers. We also provide our Blackwood clients with a pre-sale building inspection service.

 

This service will be a beneficial tool for you when you do decide to put your property up for sale. Our building inspection reports can help you to make smart and well informed about the sale price, establish trust with potential buyers and help sell your home quicker.

 

Why Choose Blackwood?

 

As well as a diverse retail and food culture, Blackwood is located close to a range of educational institutions, including daycare centres all the way through to universities.

 

Even though the town is only a short distance to the Adelaide CBD, there is no need to venture into town if you don’t want to. Everything you could ever want is located in the area. So we think the real question is, why not Blackwood?

 

Embrace A Healthy Hills Lifestyle

 

Only a fifteen-minute drive away and you can find yourself walking along one of the many harmonious walking trails within Belair National Park. Walk, jog, run or ride your way through the stunning Australian landscape. You never know, you might also spot some native Australian wildlife while you’re at it.

 

If you’re looking to break a sweat somewhere a little closer to home, go for a swim or take part in a fitness class at the Blackwood Fitness Centre.

 

Sunday Markets

 

If you enjoy art and craft, then you’ll love the Blackwood community craft markets. The markets have been a popular activity amongst the residents of Blackwood for over twenty years. Held on the first Sunday of the month, you can find an array of quality homemade crafts, cakes and food for you to enjoy.
