Brisbane West is an ideal place to live and is well known for being one of the greenest areas in the Brisbane area. There are plenty of parks, and open spaces and is a haven for wildlife. Brisbane West, geographically positioned between Brisbane and Ipswich, experienced relatively low population growth (8.3%) between 2011 and 2016, with approximately 21,000 new residents to count amongst the 270,000 residents. Many of the new residents live in new unit developments in this well-established, leafy pocket of Brisbane. The fastest growing suburbs are Oxley with a population change of 4,780 (134%) to 8,336 residents followed by Doolandella 1,712 (55%) to 4,817 and Richlands 1,522 (73%) to 3,598. Brisbane West real estate offers a range of choices for most budgets to buy or rent from riverside mansions to entry level housing options for those starting out on the property ladder.
If you’re thinking of purchasing a home in Brisbane West, or in the surrounding suburbs, it is important to get a professional building and pest inspector to inspect the property before you buy. While the property may look like it is in perfect condition with the naked eye, it is always recommended that you get a 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 that could leave you well out of pocket.
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, you can decide to terminate your contract, or you could ideally negotiate the purchase price.
Our detailed building and pest reports provide you with a checklist of maintenance items and trades required for repairs that will be useful for negotiations. Our team at Building and Pest Inspection Brisbane West have saved thousands of home buyers from paying full price for properties based on the findings in our building and pest report. When choosing a building and pest inspector, we recommend you choose someone that is a QBCC registered builder. Also, you should check their sample report so you know what you will expect after the inspection. Some of our competitors provide 4-page reports without photos that do not classify defects as major or minor. We understand the huge financial investment that comes with purchasing a property, regardless of if you are a first home buyer or an investor. When buying a property you should never cut corners and investing in a reputable building and pest inspector is the best way to give you peace of mind when buying a property.
