Before you sell or auction your home

The presentation of your property and home is a critical element in achieving the best possible sale price. A potential buyer can unravel a sale when a building inspection fails during a sales campaign. We encourage the vendor or seller to initiate a building inspection from Bloom Inspections prior to listing a property on the market.


When selling or auctioning your home ensure you are aware of all defects before going to market. A pre-sale/pre-auction inspection will identify issues and give you the opportunity to rectify them prior to presenting your home to the market.

Being in control of the sale of your home means knowing the state your property while avoiding any possible surprises that may jeopardise the process. Our inspector will provide you with detailed a pre-sale/pre-auction inspection report listing all areas of concern.

Allow sufficient time to organise a pre-sale/pre-auction building inspection before presenting your home to market. We suggest 3 to 4 weeks prior to advertising your property. This will allow you time to undertake any repairs necessary to rectify issues identified prior to going to market to give you the best possible outcome in the sale of your home.

Don’t let potential buyers find out defects before you do!

Step 3: Inspect Property

The onsite inspection typically lasts around 1-2 hours, though the duration may vary based on the requested inspection service and the property’s specifics. This includes a thorough assessment of structures on-site, building interiors and exteriors, roofing and guttering components, subfloor areas and accessible roof voids, fencing and drainage observations.

Step 4: Verbal Briefing

At the conclusion of the onsite inspection, our inspector will phone you to summarise the actual findings and discuss any significant issues or concerns observed during the inspection. This provides instant, often time critical, feedback and important information to our clients. It provides an opportunity to ask questions and obtain a general understanding of what to expect from the detailed report to follow.

Step 5: Compile Report

Compiling the report involves collating all of the inspection results together and presenting it in a thorough, detailed, yet readable format. This process takes longer than the physical inspection itself, however, we believe this is a critical component of our service and sets us apart form our competitors. The report clearly identifies minor and major defects including potential safety hazards, structural concerns and where requested to do so, a timber pest assessment. The report is sent electronically, in most cases, the evening of the inspection.

Step 6: Further Advice

Upon receiving your report, we are at your disposal for additional consultation and clarification as needed. We are delighted to provide ongoing guidance regarding the inspected property or any prospective properties you may be contemplating. We strongly encourage you to explore our testimonials, social media presence, and previous Google reviews for further insight into our services and client satisfaction.
