Highbury Building Inspections
So you’ve been shopping around for the perfect place. Perhaps the ebbs and flows of the market have swayed you, perhaps you’ve been looking for something in the east, or perhaps you just always knew you were going to buy in Highbury. Whatever the case, congratulations! The buying process is not always easy, but you are half way there.
You’re probably thinking, ‘oh no, what else is there?’ and fair enough too. But the reality is that you need to be diligent in protecting your investment. Whether the property is for private sale or auction, you want to be fully aware of its condition. A building inspection gives you a report of superficial and serious defects throughout a property, allowing you to gauge its real worth and identify any serious problems.
Beware The Pushy Real Estate Agent
I wonder if you’ve been given a building inspection report ‘courtesy’ of the real estate agent. What a nice thing to do, right? Well, not always. In this instance, the building inspector that has been employed is providing a document that is in the best interest of the real estate agent and the owner. It is not always a thorough and true reflection of the property’s condition. After all, they want the sale.
By enlisting an independent building inspector, such as Detail Building Inspections, you can have peace of mind that the information we provide is objective—leaving you best prepared to negotiate a better price or seek advice on the repairs that might be needed.
The suburb of Highbury is situated in an eastern pocket of Adelaide. Its natural position in the foothills provides scenic and luscious surroundings that make day-to-day living an absolute pleasure. It is tranquil, it is green, and it is beautiful. The design of the Highbury means that only a few access points divide the sections of the area. This leaves a sporadic look and a few dead ends, but that’s part of its magic. The traffic is usually always local, meaning you can enjoy your hidden gem in peace.
Ride, Run or Walk
One of Adelaide’s most underrated features is one that Highbury residents can enjoy in abundance. The Linear Park trail acts as the southern border between Highbury and Athelstone, but is perhaps its most defining characteristic. Think about a trail that follows along the Torrens River, all the way west to Henley Beach. It is surrounded by trees and expanses of parks, and the manmade path provides a suitable surface for those wishing to run, ride, or even push a pram.
In Highbury, you can enjoy the comforts of tranquillity without having to go without daily conveniences. Located nearby is Westfield Tea Tree Plaza that has an abundance of shops and eateries. Head in there for the latest fashion or pick up the weekly groceries at the supermarket.
