Imagine being able to jump in the car, travel less than minutes and find that you’re in the heart of the Adelaide CBD. That is the reality of life for the people of Stepney. In addition to its astounding proximity to the city, you may have been drawn to this area for the leafy surroundings that the eastern suburbs seem to share as a common commodity.
Throughout the real estate buying process, you’ve probably been weighing up the pros and cons of living in different areas on a case-by-case basis as you peruse the real estate guides. If you’ve found a gem in Stepney then you are almost there, but you need to do whatever you can to establish that this is the right home for you. Detail Building Inspections are experts in construction with extensive industry experience. We are here to help you identify the true condition of the Stepney home before you commit to the sale.
Consumer Protection Law
The reality of buying a home is that once you are committed to the sale, there’s not much in the way of recourse for faulty buildings. Whether it is evidence of termite infestation or dilapidation caused over time, the repair costs will fall on the new owner. The nature of consumer protection law means that you are only covered for purchases ranging up to $40,000, which means that houses are exempt. Before you make an official offer, have a pre-purchase building inspection conducted so that you know exactly what’s wrong and what repairs might be needed.
As someone looking into the real estate market, you’ve probably made a lot of considerations at what your travel time would be each morning for you or your family. Whether a professional or a student, Stepney’s proximity to the business district and tertiary campuses will be a key reason towards buying here. Not only is it quick by car, but also the bus route down Payneham Road is also a direct way to find your way into town via North Terrace.
Convenience A Must
As if living a stone’s throw from the Adelaide CBD isn’t enough; Stepney also boasts its own retail cluster on Payneham Road. You can find established shopping centres, hotels, restaurants, and a plethora of other small to medium businesses along this strip.
For those that are looking to settle down in Stepney with a family, you can rest easy knowing that its excellent location means only a short drive to a number of schools in the surrounding areas. Excellent junior schools are available, such as Norwood Primary, Trinity Gardens Primary, and St Ignatius College. For those a little more established in their schooling, it is hard to look past the prestigious St. Peter’s College.
