Are you thinking of selling your home? If so, you are probably looking for ways to get as much money as possible. Many homeowners are conducting pre-inspections of their home to give buyers information as to the overall condition of the property, such as the HVAC system, windows, roof and other major components. But drain surveys in Poole and surrounding areas are also a valuable pre-inspection item to add to your list. This gives potential buyers a more comprehensive picture of the condition of your property both inside and out.
Years ago, having your sewer pipes and drains inspected would be an expensive and messy project – it would involve digging up your yard which would ruin your landscaping. This mess would take weeks to clean up, and even when all was said and done, wouldn’t give you a lot of information about the condition of your pipes. If there was a blockage somewhere, it would be hard to tell where it was coming from or the exact location. Professionals had a hard time trying to determine the exact problem.
Today, however, that has all changed. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, drain surveys are a quick and efficient process. CCTV drain surveys can quickly identify problem areas and they can tell you the condition of your pipes and lines, as well as give you the route and path that they run. This is all valuable information to give to a potential home owner.
When you give the survey report to potential buyers, they will appreciate the fact that you have been totally honest about the condition of your property. Once they review the report they can make an informed decision about whether to buy or now. This can also give you negotiating power – if your pipes and drains are in good working order, you can demand more money for your home.
