Thinking of buying a house in Goodwood? What an incredible moment in your life! This suburb of Adelaide’s inner south is a buyer’s dream, with large, flat blocks being home to a plethora of established homes. Such is its age (Goodwood was founded in 1849) that there is a large amount of beautiful old builds, with the majority having been restored to contemporary construction codes and styles. It is no surprise that the market is incredibly competitive here, so before you commit at auction it is imperative that you find out any hidden defects.
This is where a report from Detail Building Inspections can be vital.
Most homes built prior to the 1980s did not have what is called a damp proof course. This is protection at the foundation of the home that shields your walls from rising moisture and minerals from the soils that cause salt damp. Although houses nowadays are likely to have this included, the reality is that many in Goodwood do not, which leaves them susceptible to peeling and cracking that arises from this issue.
By completing a pre-auction building inspection in Goodwood, we will check the property for conditions that might cause salt damp or any evidence that it has experienced it before. We will include our findings in our building inspection report so you can gain an understanding of what repairs might be required. Knowing this is imperative before you commit to the purchase, and it could save you plenty of dollars in the future.
Have you seen how many beautiful cottages Goodwood has to offer? Given its age, the suburb is a time slice of Adelaide’s history and will have you feeling a sense of pride and belonging almost instantly. The area itself is also a really friendly community, with neighbours interacting on strolls through the cosy streets or at the local sporting clubs.
Located a stone’s throw away, the Adelaide Showgrounds provide residents with Goodwood with an absolute treat every Sunday. The farmer’s markets bring in some of the most delicious produce—often organic—which means that you will be left with countless options to stock up for the coming week. Did someone say homemade smashed avo?
