Are there any property inspections or appraisals that need to be done before selling a property on the Gold Coast?

Yes, before selling a property on the Gold Coast it’s advisable to have property inspections and market valuations carried out to ensure the property is in good condition and to determine its market value. Here are the main inspections and market valuations that are usually carried out, as well as some requirements when you sell a home in Queensland:

1. Pre-sale property inspection: It’s good practice to have a pre-sale property inspection carried out by a qualified building inspector. This inspection will identify any structural issues, maintenance needs or potential problems that need to be addressed before the property is offered for sale. Addressing these issues in advance can make the property more attractive to potential buyers.

2. A Comparative Market Analysis Appraisal: A CMA appraisal is essential to determine the market value of your property. Professional real estate agents take into account factors such as the property’s location, size, condition, recent sales of comparable properties in the area and current market trends. This market valuation will help you set a realistic asking price for your property.

3. Legal and Title checks: It’s important to ensure that the title to the property is clear and free from any legal encumbrances. Solicitors or conveyancers can carry out title searches to confirm ownership details and identify any potential legal issues that need to be resolved before the sale.

4. Pest and Termite Inspection: In areas such as the Gold Coast where termite activity may be a concern, a pest and termite inspection is recommended. This inspection will identify any infestation or damage caused by pests and provide information on the overall pest condition of the property.

5. Swimming Pool Safety Inspection: If the property has a swimming pool, a pool safety inspection is required by law. This inspection will ensure that the pool area complies with safety regulations and that appropriate barriers are in place to prevent accidents, particularly involving young children.

6. Energy efficiency assessment: In some cases, an energy efficiency assessment may be recommended. This assessment evaluates the property’s energy consumption and suggests improvements that could make the property more energy efficient and attractive to environmentally conscious buyers.

7. Smoke Alarms: All homes being sold require hardwired photoelectric, interconnected smoke alarms. Non-removable 10-year battery smoke alarms can be installed in place.

8. Electrical Safety Switches: Sellers must declare the presence of safety switches for power point circuits on the standard sales contract and Form 24. there is a FAQ about Electrical Safety Switches available HERE.

Overall, these inspections and assessments contribute to a smoother sales process, help you address any potential issues and give potential buyers confidence in the condition and value of the property. It’s a proactive approach that can lead to a successful and satisfying Gold Coast property sale.
