Moreton Bay is situated on the eastern coast of Australia, a mere 14 minutes from Queensland’s capital, Brisbane. If living outside the hustle and bustle of a city, while still living close to the water appeals to you, Moreton Bay may be the perfect location for you. It is currently one of Australia’s fastest growing urban regions, forecasted to grow by over 40% to more than 690,000 by 2041. There are plenty of reasons why so many people are looking to live in the area, with an array of stores, 294km of coastline and estuaries, parks and opportunities for work, Moreton Bay has a lot to offer.
Whether you’re looking to make the move to Moreton Bay or you’re interested in purchasing an investment property, it is important that before you finalise your purchase that you ensure the property you’re investing in is free of hazards, termites or defects. While the property may look like it is in pristine condition from the outside, 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 issues that could put you 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 is over a billion dollars. If there are issues uncovered during your Building and Pest Inspection, you may wish to terminate your Contract of Sale, or you can offer to negotiate the purchase price.
Our detailed building and pest reports provide you with a checklist of maintenance items and trades required for repairs and are useful for renegotiating a price. Our team at Building and Pest Inspection Moreton Bay have saved plenty of home buyers from paying an unreasonable price for properties, based on the findings from our reports. When choosing a building and pest inspector, you should choose a QBCC registered builder and check their sample report, so you know what to expect. Some of our competitors provide 4-page reports without photos that do not classify defects properly. Buying a property whether it’s your first or your tenth, is a huge financial investment, one you simply cannot cut corners with. Investing in a reputable building and pest inspector will give you peace of mind when moving forward with your purchase.
