Port Adelaide has been a pretty significant place over time. It was once Adelaide’s hub of information and trade with the rest of the world, it has seen numerous football premierships, and now, it is potentially going to be the place that you call home! Port Adelaide will always have a special historic feel to it, which is why many people are finding hidden gems within the housing market here. If that’s you, then you have plenty to be excited about!
However, with every important decision in life comes a great deal of responsibility and care. When buying a house, you must be diligent in establishing how well it has been looked after. Detail Building Inspections will look through the Port Adelaide property and list all the defects—some of which can’t be seen by the naked eye.
Often when someone is selling a property, they will carry out superficial repair work to improve the aesthetics. Although it might look okay, it can actually raise a lot of important questions in the eyes of a building inspector.
For instance, if there has been new grouting put in place in the bathroom, it might be an indication of leaking from the drains or shower. This will lead to further investigation and can often uncover more serious problems that could be costly if left unaddressed. These are the types of clues that we are on the lookout for with our pre-purchase building inspections.
Apart from its rich history, Port Adelaide is a suburb where development is also on the rise. Many are realising the affordable options on offer, and can confidently see that the area is on track to rediscover the hustle and bustle that it was once known for. The suburb is full of historical sites, famous hotels, and buildings that will take you back in a time machine; such is their traditional style.
Port Adelaide is looking to reclaim its position as a town that doesn’t rely on the Adelaide city. Given it is a half an hour drive to the CBD, there is no reason why Port Adelaide wouldn’t want to stamp its independence down and flourish like old times. The city can still be easily accessed, but Port Adelaide is heading in the direction of developing to the point where there is no need for its residents to go anywhere when they need something. The shops and amenities are on the rise, and it is exciting for all involved.
