Why should I get an inspection before buying a home?
A thorough inspection by asset protection building inspections will highlight any existing defects and potential problems in the house before you are fully committed to buying. Since buying a home may certainly be the biggest financial investment you will ever make, a pre-purchase inspection is a relatively small investment that will give you peace of mind for years to come. Not only can you be confident that the property has been thoroughly inspected by an competent building inspector, but you’ll be able to refer to our comprehensive reports if you decide to renovate, extend or sell in the future.
Getting as much information as you can before signing a contract means that future repairs or alterations can be more accurately budgeted for– or, if there are problems with the home that are picked up during your pre purchase inspection, a reduction in the purchase price can often be negotiated with the seller. Some mortgage providers will request that an inspection be performed before they commit to funding a home loan. Be wary of inexperienced inspectors out for a quick buck– if they miss something, its you who will pay for their mistake!

Pre purchase Building Inspections
APBI was excellent to deal with and provided a thorough and professional report. Report was provided within 24 hours of the inspection. Highly recommended.
APBI has been really helpful and very thorough. I have had a few building inspections done now and thanks to his professional service and quick turnaround have been able to make some well informed decisions in whether to buy a property or not. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
