Brisbane South population is growing strongly with approximately 30,000 (12%) new residents increasing the population from 247,000 to 277,000. The top 5 fastest growing suburbs account for more than half of this growth: Mount Gravatt East, Robertson, Rochedale, Eight Mile Plains and Calamvale. Sunnybank Hills is the most populated suburb with 18,085 residents, followed by Calamvale 17,124 and Eight Mile Plains 15,322. Brisbane South real estate is in strong demand due to the short commute to Brisbane City and easy day trip access to Gold Coast beaches along the Pacific Motorway M1.
If you’re thinking of purchasing a home in Brisbane South, it is important that you check for any safety hazards, major defects or termites before you buy. While the property may look like it is in great condition, it is always best to get our comprehensive pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspection to carefully check out the property. Without our Building and Pest Inspection, you could be at risk of purchasing a home with defects.
Every year almost 180,000 Australian homes are affected by termite damage and as a result, the annual cost of termite damage repairs amounts to over a billion dollars. If there are major issues uncovered during your Building and Pest Inspection, it gives you the option to evaluate what you want to do moving forward. For some, the defects may simply be too large and it is from there that they wish to terminate the contract of sale or negotiate the purchase price.
Our detailed building and pest reports provide you with a checklist of maintenance items and trades required for repairs and can be useful for negotiations. Our team at Building and Pest Inspection Brisbane South have saved thousands of home buyers from paying full price for properties based on the findings in our report. When choosing a building and pest inspector, we recommend choosing an experienced QBCC registered builder and checking their sample report, so you know what to expect. Some of our competitors provide 4-page reports without photos that do not classify defects as major or minor. Buying a property whether it’s your first or your tenth, is a large financial investment, one you must take all precautions with. Investing in a reputable building and pest inspector gives you peace of mind.
