SYDNEY BUILDING INSPECTION PRICES
In Metropolitan Sydney there is a significant amount of competition with many individual building inspectors operating in the market as well as a couple of larger inspection companies which employ staff, casually and subcontractors.
In the Sydney market place there is also more extensive awareness of the risks posed by termites and timber pests and as such most consumers will organise a combined building and pest inspection.
Prices of building inspections in Sydney are also influenced by the fact that the majority of pre-purchase building inspections are booked by a Conveyancer or Property Settlement Agent or Solicitor. Most of these agents book multiple inspections with the same inspectors or companies and as such they have access to better building and pest inspection prices based on volume.
The NSW market is also more heavily influenced by the different regulatory circumstances in the ACT which see Vendors undertaking a package of inspections at their own cost prior to sale. This regulatory requirement has had some benefits for both buyers and sellers and where there is close geographical proximity to the ACT there has been a trend toward the adoption of this practice in NSW.
Prices in Regional Areas of NSW may be higher and tend to reflect the time and cost associated with travelling between towns to service inspections needs.

This initiative sees Jim’s Building Inspectors working as an integral part of the home sale process to create a transparent, independent and reliable building inspection and termite, timber pest report, that is fully insured, to all interested parties.
However, if you have specific queries or concerns its often best to speak directly with your building inspector and additional add on inspection services can be requested at any time from our Sydney based inspectors.
For example in older, established and affluent suburbs of Sydney the demand for Premium Building Inspections which include Electrical, Plumbing and Gas system assessments are in high demand.
There is also a high demand for our Asbestos Inspection and Testing Services throughout what is commonly referred to as the Asbestos Belt of Western Sydney.

"I decided to purchase a property a week before it was going to auction. On the date of the final inspection, I contacted David to see he could do a last minute inspection - and he did!"Jul 08, 2014 by Christine NaumovskiInspector: Jim’s Building Inspections (Werribee, VIC)

"I was really happy with the service I received from start to finish. Andrew was well-organized, arrived at the property on time, conducted a thorough inspection, answered all of my questions and sent a comprehensive report to me via email on the same day. Having a building inspection done was well worth the money because I was provided with a list of all of the potential problems which needed to be addressed with the property, many of which I would not have noticed myself. Very happy to recommend this service."April 22, 2015 by Marco SanInspector: Jim’s Building Inspections (Adelaide, SA)
