Pre-to-Market Property Inspection – From $475

Are you about to put your home on the market? Are you the type of proactive seller who wants a smooth, transparent sale?
Then invest in the best! Contact the experts at CPRNZ for a Pre-Sale report that beautifully shows the highlights of the property at the same time as providing a choice of solutions to any observations.
Every report is perfectly balanced. No confusing terminology. Just the relevant facts, accompanied by simple technical
drawings, so everyone can speak the same language. Professionally inspected, documented by a professional photographer, explained in simple terms, and illustrated with visual details, a choice of solutions for any observations and a list of trusted contractors who we personally recommend. We also provide 24-hour 7 days a week assistance so any prospective buyers can call us directly, for any queries they may have.

We are often asked to re-inspect properties that have already had a builder’s report provided by a seller. This is due to lack of confidence in the existing report, from either the report being too vague or too difficult to comprehend.
At CPRNZ we pride ourselves on the quality and clarity of every report.

What is a Pre-to-Market Property Report?

A pre-to-market property inspection is exactly how it sounds. If you choose us, Comprehensive Property Reports Limited, a highly experienced two-person team will come to your residence or commercial address, carry out a comprehensive inspection amazingly quickly and professionally, then have your report published and emailed to you within 8 hours of leaving the premises. There is a range of different inspections we offer, some of which are more invasive than others. If you believe your property has been affected by moisture or leaking pipes (which have been absorbed into the wall cavity), then you should undoubtedly consider a more invasive cavity inspection or a weather tightness inspection.
Unlike most other inspection companies, CPRNZ provide a solution and quoted cost through our builder repair list option that is available at no extra charge. It is a brilliant tool for negotiating costs during the settlement process, it gives direct control of the negotiating process to the vendor and vendee with no middleman.

How and why is it essential?

These inspections are critical for new homebuyers and sellers. They provide both the buyer and the seller with essential information about the condition of each building component, safety and practicality of the property, plus practical solutions to facilitate the buying or selling process of each individual property. This information enables both the seller and prospective buyers the transparency to make informed decisions about how they can best move forward with the sale and/or purchase. Our team is here with you, all the way for any questions or concerns you or a prospective buyer might have.
Our on staff professional photographer takes the lead when it comes to presenting your properties best features through the report. Every image, even a major observation looks impressive. The art to providing the perfect balance of observations and highlights throughout each report has been mastered at CPRNZ. We believe there is no such thing as a bad property, just a good investment for the right buyer and with level of detail in our Comprehensive Pre to Market Reports, that buyer could happily buy your property sight unseen.

What does the process involve?

INTERIOR

In terms of the interior components, we’ll carefully assess the quality of your floors (carpet, floorboards, vinyl), stairs, walls, furnishings, sinks, cabinets, appliances (built-in), smoke detectors and various forms of shelving.

EXTERIOR

The exterior of your home is just as important as the interior of your home. In fact, exterior renovations can be even more costly than internal repairs, mainly because outdoor patios and verandas often don’t receive the same maintenance care as the interior of the house. We’ll perform a detailed inspection of cladding materials, balconies, entryways, walkways, driveways and patio areas.

WARNING SIGNS

During this process, we’ll be on the lookout for warning signs, like leaks in the roof, dripping faucets and other potential moisture problems. Once moisture seeps into your walls, the damage can be rapid and irreparable, so you must point out any areas of concern during the inspection. Even small things that might seem unimportant or innocuous at the time should be addressed, like doors or windows that don’t open or close correctly (which could prove a severe safety hazard).

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

At CPRNZ, we understand your desire for the process to be quick and efficient. Nonetheless, it is vital that the process isn’t rushed, since small signs could be missed or overlooked. This is why our experience is crucial – we can move through different stages at the process quickly while maintaining attentiveness and quality of service.

Depending on the size of your home or commercial property, the process generally takes around 60 minutes with our two man team inspecting simultaneously . Once the process is completed, our inspector will talk you through any issues your home might have or any vital signs you should be mindful of into the future.
