Wow! You’re thinking of buying in one of the most sought-after areas of Adelaide. You will be the envy of friends and family once you get those keys for the first time and say, “We just moved into a place in Parkside.” Because there is so much competition to live in this area, you’ll unsurprisingly face a few challenges along the way. More than likely, finance will be one of them, as you endeavour to establish what the fair value of the property might be.
If you were to make the leap, the last thing you want is to find out down the track that the property has a few hidden defects that will cost you extra in repairs. That’s where Detail Building Inspections can come in handy!
The nature of an auction means that once that hammer goes down, you are well and truly locked into your bid. Even if you find that your newly acquired Parkside home is full of termites, there are no options for recourse. A pre-auction building inspection can be booked prior to auction day as a way for professionals such as ourselves to assess the property for all defects, large and small. Our comprehensive report will mean that you are well aware of all the problems that we’ve found. From here, you can seek advice on repairs or avoid auction day if you think the property isn’t worth the trouble.
It’s difficult to come up with reasons not to live in Parkside. The suburb is utterly beautiful and oh-so-close to the CBD. Situated in the inner southeast of Adelaide, Parkside boasts an eclectic mix of old and new—especially considering it is one of the first established suburbs. Given it is suburbia, the blocks are large, meaning you will be hard-pressed to be able to own such a vintage house within such proximity to the Adelaide city.
Along Glen Osmond Road and Duthy Street are a number of cafes and eateries that residents of Parkside utilise on a regular basis. You will even find a couple of establishments tucked away in the inner streets, which creates a sense of excitement over the ‘hidden gems’ the area has to offer. When the people of Parkside aren’t enjoying the socialite lifestyle, you might find them utilising the bike paths that lead to the Adelaide CBD. You’d be surprised at just how many utilise these as a way to commute to and from work safely. The ride in is perfect, especially given it takes you through the gorgeous southern parklands of Adelaide.
If you are serious about a home in Parkside, there is really only one thing you need to do next. A Parkside building inspection will provide you with peace of mind before you head to auction, so you can be absolutely sure that what you are bidding on is worth the hard-earned cash that you willing to outlay.
