The reality of today’s housing market is that prospective buyers are always looking for that hidden gem. Do you want to live close to the beach? Do you want to live close to the city? Do you have a family? Are you happy anywhere, as long as it’s affordable? These are questions that need to be considered before you enter the market. Woodcroft might just be the answer for you, especially given its proximity to the southern beaches and situated right next to the Southern Expressway.
If a house in Woodcroft tickles your fancy, the step before making an offer or bidding in an auction is to ensure the property doesn’t have any hidden issues that might cause a hassle later on. The reality is that you could buy a house that has structural damage but wasn’t noticed because it looks fine to the naked eye. Detail Building Inspections utilises procedures and industry know-how that is the result of many years in construction. We provide you with a report on the property’s condition and its defects, while also advising what to do next.
Movement in the Walls
When a house experiences cracking in its walls, the reason could be any number of factors. Movement in the foundation, a reaction in the surrounding soil, tree roots, poor design, sun exposure or excessive wetting could all cause a change in the structure. When this happens, the safety of a home can become compromised, and the repair costs could be extravagant if it is not addressed. Our pre-purchase property inspections will, among other things, identify the occurrence of cracks and explain why this structural damage has occurred.
The suburb itself is a popular choice for those with a few mouths to feed. Couples and families make up the vast majority of residents, which indicate that Woodcroft is a comfortable location to bring up children. From a real estate perspective, the suburb could be perfect for those needing the extra space; the average for a four-bedroom house is just $445K (Oct 2017).
Onkaparinga River National Park
Keeping active is vital for a healthy lifestyle. With beautiful national park just minutes away, Woodcroft residents are provided with excellent hiking options while taking in the stunning views on offer. Each of the six hikes is between 3-4 kilometres but range in difficulty due to the varying gradients.
If you are a rock-climber, the park also allows climbing off a designated cliff—just be sure to seek approval first.
If you are more inclined to enjoy the food and wine that South Australia has to offer, Woodcroft’s proximity to McLaren Vale will give you plenty of vindication for choosing its postcode.
Indulge in some of the world’s most famous and award-winning wines, while taking in the breathtaking landscape of over 100 vineyards. If you are a bit of a connoisseur, the staff at the cellar doors will be able to inform you of the history and processes of their varieties.
