The median Hawke's Bay house price as of August 2018 is as follows:


Napier: $511,891

Hastings: $460,059

We ran the numbers and based on an average house sale of $500k and the average inspection cost of $460 (incl GST) for a 3 bedroom home, the inspection cost accounts for 0.92% of the total sale price.


The below are potential issues that may be discovered during an inspection. Undiscovered these issues could cost you thousands. Your new property could potentially have one or more of these issues. Is it worth taking the risk?

Now that .092% of the total sale price, for a building inspection all of a sudden does seem necessary.
