When deciding on a building and pest inspection it helps to think of the house inspection cost in proportion to the value of the property.
The cost of a building OR pest inspection start from $440 inc GST
Building and Pest Inspections (Combined) start from $550 inc GST, and depending on the type and size of the property may vary (eg. apartment vs house). As an example a comprehensive Building and Pest Inspection on a 2 or 3 bedroom house would cost $595 inc GST.
All prices are inclusive of GST and are based on the property being located within Melbourne.
At first, $595 might seem like a lot of money for a pest and building inspection on a property you may not buy. But it’s still less than 0.001% percent of the cost of a $600,000 house, and that small sum could save you tens of thousands of dollars in repairs later on.
