Pre-Sale Inspections Melbourne
If you’re looking to sell a property, don’t underestimate the importance of a pre-sale property inspection. When it comes to selling, you want to be armed with as much information as possible. You need to know your property in detail to help you maximise your asking price and ease the sale process. Discovering defects during the sale can push back settlement, force you to lower your asking price or even cause potential buyers to walk away.
At Focal Point Building Inspections, we provide reliable and cost-effective pre-sale inspections carried out by independent property inspectors. We are registered builders and members of Master Builders Victoria with over 15 years of industry experience.
We offer detailed pre-sale inspection reports that thoroughly document the condition of your property. We outline all major and minor structural defects, repairs, potential issues, ongoing maintenance requirements, cosmetic damages and more.
Pre-Sale Inspections – Why it’s Important
A pre-sale inspection will provide you with detailed information regarding the condition of your property, including defects to be rectified, repairs to be made and maintenance to be carried out. Armed with this information, you can work out what work should be done before listing your property to help maximise your asking price.
A pre-sale inspection report can also help when it comes to dealing with potential buyers. You’ll be aware of and prepared for any issues with the property that potential buyers come across. Having a detailed knowledge of the condition of your property will also help to strengthen your negotiating position with buyers.
Offering buyers your independent inspection report is a good way to build trust and goodwill. You can also use the report to show potential buyers the maintenance and repairs you’ve carried out since the inspection.
Pre-Sale Inspections – What’s Included
Our pre-sale inspections include all accessible areas inside and outside the property. The inspection looks for any structural issues, defects, safety issues, necessary and cosmetic repairs, ongoing maintenance issues and potential problems.

Shaun conducted our pre-settlement inspection on our apartment that we purchased off the plan. Shaun had a good knowledge of our builders and had seen their work previously. He worked with us and the company to ensure everything was finalised as per the plans. His attention to detail was fantastic resulting in ensure elements such as light switch panels were level, painting marks were fixed etc. He was also useful in ensuring we understood how elements in our apartment were constructed e.g. floating tiles on balcony. Overall we were really happy with the outcome and would definitely use Shaun again.

Focal Point were very easy to deal with,quick to respond and provided a great service.Shawn provided a very detailed report of the building condition and was happy to answer all of my
questions – there were quite a few as this is the first time I’ve purchased a property. Would happily recommend him to others needing a building inspection.
Focal point was excellent and very quick to get the job done.They coordinated with the agent to get the inspection done on our pre purchase house. Report was detailed and well structured and easy to understand. Pick up on almost everything we did not notice when we inspected the house. He also spends the time explaining every item he has documented in his report I would highly recommend Focal point (Shaun) if you need a building inspection done.
