In every sales transaction, the buyer is always at a disadvantage when it comes to the information about the item one is buying. This concept is encapsulated perfectly in the principle of information asymmetry. Simply put, in information asymmetry, the seller almost always knows more about the item being sold as compared to the buyer. From this concept, the phrase caveat emptor (or “buyer beware”) was coined.

Through the Internet, today’s consumers now find themselves at an advantage when purchasing various items. Consumer reviews, in particular, can sway customer behaviour, more effectively than any marketing campaign. However, there are two instances wherein consumer reviews do not work: when buying a secondhand car, and when buying a house.

An experienced mechanic can instantly see potential problems that cosmetic upgrades cannot easily hide. In the same vein, building and pest inspections (Tallebudgera Valley) can bring to light unseen structural and pest problems that an untrained person cannot immediately see.

Through their knowledge, experience, and use of specialised equipment like moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras, DR Inspects Gold Coast South consultants can alert buyers about underlying problems and potential issues that can amount to further spending by the buyer should the sale push through. The DR Inspects consultants will inspect all reasonably accessible areas in a property including the interior, exterior, roof exterior, roof void and subfloor.

When buying property, it’s not just about location, location, location. Even more important is entering into the bargaining table with an objective mindset and knowledge about the property put out in the market — a knowledge that is attainable with the help of an impartial professional.

With this knowledge, you can make informed decisions and not merely rely on your own emotions about the property. This will also put you in a position of advantage during the bargaining process.

Remember, as you proceed with negotiations with the seller, every party involved has his or her own agenda. As a buyer, you’d want to get the best value for your money. The seller, on the other hand, wants to pocket a hefty sum at the soonest time possible. The real estate agents of both parties rely on the completion of the sale. The only party involved who does not have a separate agenda is the building and pest inspector.
