Strap on your favourite bum bag and grab your notepad and measuring tape - this week we’re inspecting properties!
Amy tells us her 13 top things to look out for at an inspection, which includes:
Natural light
Noise from nearby roads, train lines or other noisey things (eg schools!)
Making sure room sizes match up with the floorplan measurements, and can fit your stuff
Parking off street - both the size and turning circles
Heating & cooling
Questions for your building inspector
Light switches and fuse boxes
Goods which come with the property
Quality of the floorplan
Storage
The subfloor condition
Common property
Car spaces, storage cages or courtyards which are ON your title (versus a lease or common property)
We also chat about the things to look out for before you even go inside the property - the streetscape, neighbours and local development risk. Plus some inspection etiquette, because we always want to kick things off on the right foot with the real estate agents.
