Make sure this is your dream home – not a financial disaster

Melbourne property inspections are designed to look for and assess major and minor structural defects throughout your proposed property. Quite often when purchasing a home, buyers will have a strong emotional attachment to the property which can cause a structural bias to the property which is why it is important to speak with someone you can trust. Some homes could seem like a bargain on face value which could end up costing you thousands of dollars in the near future. We will also advise of possible maintenance and/or rectification works that will be required to prevent any further related defects to other areas of the home.

Our Melbourne Property Inspections service can also put you in a strong negotiating position when it comes to negotiating price based on any necessary repairs.

If you need a reliable building and pest inspection in Melbourne from a trusted and experienced company, we are always here to help.

Buying a new home can come with a long and potentially unsettling list of ‘what ifs’. While it is never a good idea to dwell on the unknown, putting in place a course of action before committing to a new home in Melbourne is something you should certainly consider. After all, buying a house is likely to be the most significant purchase throughout the course of your life, and having all the information available at your disposal is vital. At Select House Inspections, we provide that peace of mind with our experienced staff and accredited pre-purchase and pre-handover house inspections. With an emphasis on detail, and with industry knowledge and experience, Select House Inspections will tick every box on the list. Our building and pest inspectors will come out to your Melbourne property or the property in question, and run a fully insured home inspection to ensure a hassle-free transition.

We will go through every nook, every cranny, and every hard to reach pace, in order to offer a full and comprehensive building report, so that you can make the best possible decision.

Why Choose Select House Inspections For Your Melbourne Property?

While keeping the costs down when it’s time to either buy or sell a house is ideal, being as diligent as possible can only save you heartbreak in the future. Our team of professional property inspectors will conduct both a building and pest inspection, and offer the appropriate recommendations or warning signs, should they present themselves. This won’t only provide you with all the relevant information, but in all likelihood, save you money and time down the road

Admittedly, some houses can seem ‘perfect’ upon first glance, giving you that instant feeling of ‘home’ and ‘buy now’ mentality. While we will always encourage intuition and the warm and fuzzy feelings you get upon first entering a house, it still pays to have a professional team of building and pest inspectors on your side. Select House Inspections have helped hundreds of families make more informed decisions, by highlighting structural defects, be it minor or more serious, signs of timber pests and other unwanted guests, as well as a range of other problems that are often overlooked or undetected upon first glance. It is our job to be as thorough as possible, and offer our inspection reports with an objective approach. With all the facts firmly in your back pocket, and with a new insight into the property, it is only natural for the negotiating stage and subsequent transaction to be a more favourable one.

What Select House Inspections Look for
