Getting an Thermal Imaging Report BEFORE Selling Your Home Will Improve Your Marketing!
“Can an infrared moisture report really add value when selling my home?”
One of the key aspects to selling your home is good marketing (or packaging). Have you ever considered ‘packaging’ your home up with a ‘clean bill of health’ before selling?
To some people reading this, getting an infrared report prior to selling their house may sound like a waste of money, but it could really work in your favor and move the property faster. Let’s take a look at how thermal imaging moisture could assist in the sale of your home….
1) Clever Marketing idea. Selling your home can take time, and some people’s homes sit there for months and they can’t sell it! One option is to ’get creative’ with your marketing… so how do you think “THIS HOME HAS PASSED A THERMAL IMAGING INSPECTION” would look in your advertisement? The main fear of Aussie home buyers is buying a damp home, or a home full of termites… so why not eliminate that fear for them!
What about “THIS IS A HEALTHY HOME”… how would that look in your marketing? Simple and effective! If there is no moisture, it generally means no mould growth. This is a big selling point to a family with young kids.
2) More and more Aussies have wised up to the idea that a thermal imaging inspection prior to signing the dotted line is a wise move to make… so the chances they are going to find out about a leak in your home (if there is a leak) are pretty good. How about you find it first and get it fixed (or tell the buyer up front), so your sale goes through without a hitch?
3) If you’re selling, the chances of the buyer trying to bargain you down are pretty good, then they make the offer subject to a moisture or building report. If they do find signs of moisture, get ready to see a low ball offer flying your way… that’s if they don’t pull out altogether! Eliminate all chances of losing the sale as you can.
What if a problem is found in the building inspection prior to selling?
The advantage of telling them about any issues up front is this…. you can say something like “these are the issues, and we’ve already factored them into the original price we listed the home for”. A potential home buyer will appreciate the fact you told them about it, and feel more ‘in the loop’. This can certainly work in your favour.

$800,000 that was what we had signed up on, it was a huge 5 bedroom house we were going to buy. We received a very professional and prompted service saved us from buying this property which was a leaky home. Nearly every room had a leak or excessive moisture. We can't thank him enough and every home buyer no matter how much they like the house must get this company in to do the Thermal imaging. It may save them hundreds of thousands of dollars like they did for us and stress that would of come with it. John S
As first home buyers we were eager to ensure our investment was going to be a secure one. The inspection and report was thorough and easy to understand, and most importantly uncovered a worrying presence of moisture throughout the house, much of which was not obvious from a purely visual inspection. Thanks for saving us from buying a lemon. Ben H
A late decision to have our house tested for leaks before repainting was very wise. Numerous leaks were found between old pitched and flat roofs on a large build-on. Advice about the flatroof edging was appreciated. A big surprise was the nail hole in the roof above my bed that was letting in water. Money well spent. The inspector was pleasant and very professional in his work. Pauline F
Very Professional, thorough and on time. Priced well. Alex S
The inspector responded to my email query stunningly quickly, and I was so glad it suited him to do the moisture detection inspection on the very same day! Thanks to the thermal imaging device, we were able to see our house had no moisture issues. Yay! He also managed to pinpoint the location of a small leak that had potential of becoming a problem. Now that we know where and how small it is, we can get the roof patched up and not worry about replacing the whole roof. It was a small investment for a peace of mind (in our case, luckily!). If you're thinking of getting your house checked, don't waste your time any longer – call these guys. They are nice to deal with and know their stuff. Mari P
Very thorough inspection - identified a few problems we need to resolve before we list our property for sale, confident will then be a water tight dwelling. Rob F
The service, response time and attention to detail is outstanding. He included us in the whole process with clear explanations. We would definitely enlist his assistance again and recommend him highly. Yvonne R
I contacted an inspector hoping to track a leak in our ceiling. A leak that has survived partial re-cladding of the house, the windows being sealed and plumbers in to inspect the roof. A very prompt informative and professional visit ensued. The inspection discovered the source of the persistent leak. We now feel the integrity of our house will be maintained before any damage occurs. I would highly recommend this procedure. Maxine EVery professional approach, did a good job. Answered all questions that I had plus offered sound advice. Thanks. Raymond H
Our inspector way very professional at what he does. Efficient, timely and concise. He explained what he is doing and what he finds so that you can get it fixed. Very friendly and approachable. Definitely use him again and would highly recommend his services to everybody that asks. John M
Great job, hidden problems revealed. Saved me buying a “wet” lemon! Peter J
By getting you in I have now a complete peace of mind about my house. One leak was detected & tracked to where it was coming from. Patricia M
We were relieved to have a Technician who was confident and efficient in finding the source of our problem. And as an added bonus we were able to view the areas involved on his monitor ourselves. It enabled us to get the problem fixed with certainty (Has now been done). An efficient service and a technician with integrity. Thank you. Hugh and Raewyn N
Your report helped us knock $20K off the price agreed to with the vendors. So definitely worth it!! The inspector was very patient in explaining how the equipment worked and what his findings were. Will use again on my next purchase. Thanks. Sahjid R
I had fantastic prompt service and would happily recommend him to anybody. Definitely worth it for peace of mind. Karenza H
