It is not uncommon to experience trepidation when buying a house. After all, this is a significant life investment that is the culmination of your hard work and the constant saving of your pennies. It should be something to celebrate, rather than a stressful experience. However, it would be naïve to think the best-made plans don’t sometimes go awry. This is why Detail Building Inspections are here to service the prospective buyers of Adelaide, including those looking in Tea Tree Gully.
When you first see a home for sale, you might only see inside it a couple of times before you consider making a serious offer. By booking a pre-purchase building and pest inspection, we can arrange with the vendor to inspect every accessible area and provide a report on the defects or susceptibility to pests.
The suburb of Tea Tree Gully is naturally hilly and leafy due to its geographical location. While this is a major reason behind people wanting to buy here, it can also pose a risk to your investment due to critters that love the conditions produced.
When a home experiences heavy rainfall or dew, moisture can build up in the timber. This could be in the actual interior structure itself or outdoor areas like your back deck or pergola. Due to the leafy cover of the surrounding trees, homes in Tea Tree Gully might be less effective for drying the moisture, which is perfect for termites; damp timber is their favourite to munch on. Detail Building Inspections will identify the presence of termites or point out conditions that could cause them to come and do damage to your investment.
Why Tea Tree Gully?
Situated in the north east of Adelaide, the suburb of Tea Tree Gully provides a serene environment due to its proximity to the hills and the dense natural flora prevalent throughout. For those looking to enter the market, its median price of $402K (as at Oct 2017) is a reflection of its affordability. Its closeness to Lower North East Road means it is a relatively direct drive to the CBD, taking just half an hour.
A Shopper’s Convenience
The residents of Tea Tree Gully don’t need to venture far to find a bargain. With a major shopping centre such as Westfield Tea Tree Plaza down the road, the need to head to the CBD is few and far between. The complex is packed full of shops, including fashion, homewares, sport and recreation, and electronics.
If you’re not in the mood to shop, the great thing is that you could just spend your time watching a movie in one of the cinemas or grab a bite to eat the various eateries throughout the mall.
If being active is more fitting to your lifestyle, calling Tea Tree Gully home will be perfect. The nearby Anstey Hill has many tracks that you can walk or run, all the while taking in the incredible views and admiring the surrounding fauna. Just be sure to pack your hat and sunscreen; it’s easy to lose track of time looking out across the city.
