Do I Need a Building Inspection When Buying at an Auction?

Property auctions are one of the most exciting places for buyers to experience. It’s easy to get swept away in all the fervour of the event. And in many cases, you can get an incredible deal on a property – whether it’s a home, commercial space, or other building.
One of the most common questions we get related to these properties is “should I get a property inspection when buying at an auction?”
The short answer to this question is “yes!” Property inspections by the professionals at Juro Building Inspections are an essential part of any buying process. Without a comprehensive inspection, you risk investing in a property that may have significant damage or other problems behind the scenes.

Getting Ready for an Auction

Once you’ve found a potential auction property you’re interested in buying, there are a few steps you should take prior to auction day. First and foremost, you’ll want to have all your finances ready to go. The last thing you want is to win at auction but lose out on the property due to complications with your financing.
Next, you’ll want to get inside the property as many times as possible before the auction to have a look at it and to do a few quick inspections yourself. Most of these properties offer open houses to give you the opportunity to get inside and take a look.

Now Is the Time for an Official Inspection

It’s at this stage that you should opt to get professional help with building inspection services from the Juro Building Inspections team. Most auction properties will give you the chance to bring in an inspector before auction day. If not, you may not want to risk a purchase. Issues like roof damage, mould, pest infestation, and structural damage may not be visible when you inspect a property yourself. You never know what problems a building may have that you can’t see. And that’s exactly why you should always opt for a property inspection before you commit to buy.
