What are the influencing factors of purchasing a home? Is it just price and location? Or is the home’s condition also of vital importance? If you agree that the latter is worth more consideration that normally given, you are an astute buyer. There are plenty of issues that can arise from not gaining an understanding a property’s condition.
This is especially important when taking into considering the unregulated state of the industry. Consumer protection law will only cover purchases below $40,000, which means that when you buy a house, the defects also become your property. Repair costs can be extravagant, and can especially hurt if they are unexpected; a pre-purchase building inspection can be crucial in helping you avoid these.
A classic approach to selling a home is where the owner gives it a bit of a ‘touch-up’. This might include a fresh coat of paint, filling in the cracks, or even fixing that hole in the roof. Sure, this might make the property look attractive to the eye, but for building inspectors it raises plenty of questions. For instance, that paint could be covering salt damp—meaning there are defects in the build causing moisture to rise. The cracks could be a sign of a moving foundation, and that hole in the roof could have caused plenty of moisture damage over time.
