Penny the termite detection dog

Termite Detection Dog

Penny our termite detection dog for over 8 years has officially retired as of March 2020, due to health issues and she is going on 10 years old now, which is around retirement age for us humans.

Penny has performed around 7000 pre purchase inspections for Buy Wise and she was originally part of a team of 4 dogs, Max, Bluey, Sarge and Penny over a 14 year period.

Buy Wise has made the decision of not continuing with termite detection dogs at our inspections due to several reasons, one is the expense which is around $20,000 per dog and time of ongoing training with a new pup.

Even though they were a great part of our team, we believe we have the best timber pest inspectors around which is the most important aspect of any inspection, and we have all of the latest equipment for the detection of live termites.

If you were at one of our inspections with Penny you would have seen how well behaved and friendly she was, always having her nose to the ground doing her thing and enjoying a pat afterwards which she loved as much as food.

Instead of going to work every day, Penny will now stay at home with my other dog Remi who is a Husky, we all thank Penny for her long dedicated service in finding termites.


In the event that a situation arises, then you can rest assured that you, our client, are well-covered at all times for both building and timber pest inspectionsClick here to download the document.

This is the second time I have used Buy Wise for an inspection and they have been prompt, professional and always friendly and helpful. Can't recommend highly enough!
Both Peter and Rohan were amazing while doing my building and pest inspection. This is our first home purchase and so glad I went through them as they explained everything clearly and we’re very professional would highly recommend.
Easy company to work with, they go out of their way to make sure the process is easy as possible, without a doubt the best building & pest company I have worked with
Buywise Inspections offer the best service in town!! I called a number of inspection companies and found only Buywise sends 2 inspectors - one for Building and one for Pest inspections. Not only are they customer friendly, but the inspectors provide thorough reports, and are willing to answer any questions. Their service is prompt as well. I will certainly used Buywise's services again and highly recommend you to use them too.
Buy Wise were extremely helpful and professional with the Building & Pest inspection they provided me. It was my first home and they made it a smooth and easy process from start to finish.
We used Buy Wise to assist with our last property purchase and were very happy with the service provided. Responsive customer service, quick to complete the inspections and the comprehensive report picked up some valuable things to consider before we purchased the property.Because of the above reasons we've engaged BuyWise again for our next property purchase!
Great service and detailed reports!! We have used Buy Wise and associated companies for both our building and pest inspections. Extremely satisfied with their level of detail and expertise.
We had such a good experience with Buy Wise 4 years ago, when we bought our first home, and now we're using them again for the purchase of our second. The office staff and those doing the inspection are really friendly, clear and concise, and the reports are very thorough.
I am so grateful to have been recommended to use Buywise Inspections by family and friends. Emily was extremely helpful with any questions I had, very prompt with her communication and always friendly! The inspectors Peter and Trevor were extremely thorough with their inspections and both took the time to contact me via phone to discuss their findings before providing a detailed report. Thanks to their investigating and experience in the industry my partner and I were made aware of some severe complications with both active termites and major structural damage that we had previously been advised were non existent and less severe with a limited assessment being provided from another pest and building company on the same property. With the assessments completed by Peter and Trevor, we were able to withdraw from the contract of sale at no financial loss and go on to purchase a property safe for our family and two young children to live in with peace of mind.
Buywise was recommended by a friend and I can't fault them.Emily was brilliant and very helpful.Peter And Rohan were prompt and efficient especially before a long weekend!They offered structural advice and different ideas I'd not considered.Would highly recommend this service.
Buy Wise Inspections are incredibly efficient and provide great customer service from the outset. Emily was friendly, helpful and informative. The information in emails was clear. The building and pest inspections and reports were done quickly and we also appreciated the phone call with the verbal updates. The online system to access reports was easy to use and great to have everything in one place. Would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for well priced service with a customer focus.
Fast and reliable service. Extremely thorough in their inspections. Found defects and provided us with advice. Highly recommend and will now only use them for our property purchases.
I recently used Buywise for a pre-purchase builders and pest inspection. As a first home buyer the process was a bit daunting but the staff were very friendly, helpful and responsive. The inspections were performed within a few days and 2 separate and very comprehensive inspection reports were provided. Couldn't recommend this company more highly and thanks again for the great service!
I used Buywise for a pre-purchase inspection for an existing dwelling about 4 years back,They were prompt and professional to deal with. The inspection was very thoroughly done and the report was comprehensive detailed with attached photos.So that’s the reason I am using their services again for pre purchase of my investment propertyDefinitely recommend for anyone purchasing their owner occupied or investment property.One of the best in the industry!!
I engaged Buywise Inspections to inspect my first home and they provided thorough and detailed report given within a short time frame. I now use them again for my next purchase. Highly recommended.
Very simple, well priced company who did excellent work for us.Would highly recommend
We engaged BuyWise Inspections to complete a review of our first property purchase in Melbourne, having moved from interstate.We were very impressed with their service which included a comprehensive detailed report with photos that left us with no illusions of about the property we were looking to invest in.We speak highly of their customer service and have since engaged them in further inspections.
Excellent customer service and thorough inspections.As first home buyer we did not know what to expect or how to conduct a pest and building inspection. The team at BuyWise explained everything and dealt with the agents directly making sure we got the report within the timeframe allocated but our contract. They were friendly, understanding and put our minds at ease through the whole process.The report itself was extremely thorough, having picture and explanations of everything found. The inspectors even called us on the day to explain what they had found and answered all of our questions. The report ended up saving us tens of thousands of dollars as there was structural termite damage to the property.We have engaged BuyWise to inspect another property for us and will be recommending them to everyone we speak to.
We used Buywise for a pre-purchase inspection for an existing dwelling.  They were prompt and professional to deal with. The inspection was thorough and the report comprehensive and detailed with attached photos. Definitely recommend for anyone purchasing property and we will use them for future purchases!
I have used Buywise pre purchase inspection services quite a few times and they provide good value for money. On one occasion we did not proceed with a property due to defects found, we spoke to the inspector and were able to get a good understanding of the structural issues with the property. On other occasions the list of smaller defects is a good maintenance list and watchouts for the future. Every time I use Buywise I talk to the inspectors and they are happy to chat about what they have found, the reports with photos are good too.
Exceptional service and detailed inspection report, highly recommended.As a first time buyer on an existing dwelling, we were glad that we used Buy Wise Inspection. Their quality service started from the first phone conversation which outlined their comprehensive services and pricing clearly, so we knew exactly what to expect. They even scheduled an inspection on our behalf directly with the real estate agent which made the process much simpler.The inspection reports were very thorough and detailed, they first summarised the property quality relative to the similar properties, then outlined each area in detail with clear photos. Most importantly every issue they identified, they provided a recommended solution with an indicative cost which allowed us to budget that into our overall purchase price. Every subsequent question that we had, they responded promptly in detail.Being one of the biggest purchases, we were glad that we partnered with someone who has been in the industry for decades! Highly recommended!
I have had the pleasure of using Buywise Inspections, Langwarrin twice so far--7 years ago and 3 years ago, while buying properties in Langwarrin. And on the basis of those experiences, using the company again this week, while buying an investment unit in Langwarrin.The reports produced were quite comprehensive and as a result, the vendors had to replace more than a dozen roof tiles and protect electric wires from the insulation in the roof.Further, on the basis of the report, we arranged protection against termites--common issue in Langwarrin .It was easy to arrange the inspection within a couple of days--before the 1 week deadline for the 10% deposit.On the basis of my experience, I would recommend Buywise Inspection, without any hesitation.
As a first home buyer a lot of these processes are a bit daunting, the team at Buy Wise were just amazing throughout the process! They have a clear and thorough report, which outlines all the items in detail. They took the time to run through the report with us so we understood the results, and they are just great to deal with. Highly recommend!!
Can’t thank the team at Buy Wise enough! They saved me from investing in a property with major structural defects which I would have missed if it weren’t for them. The service was very personable, yet professional and prompt. Their reporting was thorough and clear, with easy to understand photos for those, like myself, who have little knowledge of building. Buy Wise was recommended to me by a friend, and I too will be recommending their services to anyone who is in need of a building and pest inspection. Thank you again Buy Wise team!
We used Buywise for when we purchased our first home. They were so easy to deal with and were so organised in contacting the agent and getting out to see the property. The report we got from them THAT NIGHT was so detailed with information about every aspect of the house. It varied from broken roof tiles to taps being the wrong way around and so much in between. The detail in the report also gave us price estimates to fix things which really helped with budgeting and determining what issues to resolve when and what we could do ourselves. They even had some tips in the report for example there was timber under the house that was just left there and they recommended removing it to reduce risks of pests.Since our inspection all my siblings and parents have also used Buywise, as well as some of my mates all of which couldn't believe how great and detailed the reports were. Hence now buying a new property we are going with these guys once again.
Buywise helped us with a pre-purchase inspection in Blackburn South.They went through with great detail, and arranged an inspection at short notice.I’d definitely reuse them again.
Can't thank Peter and Rohan and the team enough for providing a full pest and building inspection report for a property i have just purchased. Being a single mum and this being such a huge decision and also with COVID restrictions in place, they have given me great peace of mind and even provided some ideas for improvements that could be done. I have really appreciated their help and follow up also. Would definitely recommend.
Can't thank Emily, Peter and Trevor at Buy Wise enough for the building and pest inspection they conducted for me at short notice. During COVID it makes it difficult to understand the state of property when you are unable to inspect, however the report Buy Wise gave so much insight and the inspection was of exceptional quality and detail. Best building and pest inspection I have used and would defiantly recommend!
This is the second time, I am using Buy Wise services for building and pest inpsection. I have always found them thorough and professional.Emily was very helpful in resolving my queries and providing updates at every stage of the process.Inspection report was very professional and detailed. I would highly recommend them for property purchase!
Recently, I purchased a residential property which required a very fast turnaround time due to conditions of purchase. I called Emily who was extremely helpful and was able to accommodated the swift turnaround time. The inspection was professional and highly detailed. They look after you, especially if you've used their services in the past.Definitely recommend for any property purchase 🙂
We were buying the house for the first time and didn’t want to take any risk. We contacted Buy Wise and they did the inspection on good time.The report was ready at same day. It was very depth report which did help us to make the decision whether we should buy the property or not. I would definitely recommend them to others without any hesitation.
I have now used Buywise before I purchased my last three properties! Great service 🙂
Buywise provided the reports I needed at a great speed and the service was professional.Highly recommend it.
We used Buywise a few years ago when buying our first property and they were fantastic. The team were very friendly and efficient. Inspection reports were very detailed. Would use them again!
Many thanks to our building inspector who returned to complete the inspection after not being able to access the roof on the original inspection. Very professional reports and advice on defects found. Highly recommend.
非常专业的团队。检查每个细节都很认真。建筑报告也非常的详细。各种工具齐全。能找出结构上的隐患。下次买房还是会找他们。Professional team. Very thorough with inspection and detailed report. Great work to Peter and Rohan. Will definitely recommend to others.
Tania and the Team at Melbourne Buywise were terrific! Fast, friendly and efficient. Very good value for such detailed inspections (both building & pest) and much more detail than other companies we have used prior - highly recommended
Thank you Melbourne Buywise for your quick and professional service. We are happy customers again. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a detailed property report prior to making such a big commitment.
Had a great experience using buywise, they were able to meet my deadline and gave a very thorough and report of the property
Thank you to the very efficient team for organising the comprehensive report for a property that I have now purchased in Cranbourne East. I have used your service three previous times and I have been very impressed that you continue to offer such peace of mind and thorough reports. Very pleased with the ease and speed at which these can carried out at. Best Regards.
Really thorough inspectionsThese guys do a great jobOffice staff are great to deal with too
Professional service.
Very professional and the inspectors are good at picking up things and very thorough. Highly recommend their service if you are buying a property!
Thank you for your recent inspections, building and pest. Communication and efficiency from start to finish was excellent and it made a very stressful time much easier. Thank you.
BuyWise completed a building and pest inspection at a property in Blairgowrie. They were very responsive with an urgent booking and quick turnaround time on the report. The report was very thorough allowing us to make an informed decision on the purchase.
We went through Buywise a few years ago, as we were buying our first home. Upon inspection, Buywise found that the house we intended on purchasing had termites! With their help we we able to cancel the offer we made on that house. We went through them a second time and were successful in buying our first home. As we are now going through them again for another house, we would like to recognize that the service and correspondence is still just as amazing as it was years ago.Wouldn't go through anyone else!
Would never make such a big purchase without getting their help - the staff are just fantastic, the experts will make the time to discuss any questions you might have, and we have avoided making a bad purchase with their help - plain and simple. Going to sleep better at night knowing the place we did buy is a-ok aside from a few to be expected maintenance things. Thank you so much!!
We have dealt with Peter, Trevor and the Buywise/Pest Police team on a number of occasions and are always impressed by their professionalism, level of detail and prompt communication. For our most recent Comprehensive Building & Pest Inspection we needed to re-schedule at late notice, Tania was very helpful and understanding. We highly recommend their services.
We were very happy with your service last year, and it saved us from what would have been a bad purchase! Peter was most helpful & generous with his time when explaining some report details and making recommendations. So, we're satisfied return customers, and again Tania has been very accommodating in arranging the inspection at short notice to fall within 3-day cooling off period & we know we will get a reliable report that will inform our purchasing decision.
Great service and great communication
I commissioned a Comprehensive Building and Pest Inspection Report from Buywise and cannot recommend them enough.The building inspection was completed by Buywise's director Peter, who is a Registered Building Practitioner. The pest inspection was completed by Rohan, a registered pest inspector in the employ of the business.Both reports were available the night of the inspection and supplied with pictures and detailed comments. I was impressed by the quality of the reports and it is clear they had been thorough in their approach.I had a few questions relating to a few findings in the building report and my query was quickly attended to by a return phone call from Peter, who patiently answered my questions with clarity and in a way that was easy for a layperson like me to understand. His manner was impeccable and this level of 'after-sales' care is rare.This was equally matched by the manner in which my initial query was handled by their office manager Tania, who guided me through what the process entailed and which inspections were most appropriate for my circumstances.I am completely satisfied with the product and level of service that was delivered, and will certainly be a returning client in the future!
Thorough and efficient. We paid the extra for the more detailed inspection, this was definitely worth the money as now we know what maintenance our property requires when we move in to prevent any future headaches.
Highly Recommend!!!!Had done an extremely thorough inspection on a property I wished to purchase.Pointed out factors that I hadn’t even considered as extra costs on the property.Very detailed report with pictures of everything.Definitely will recommend to others that require their service.3977
Quick response and friendly. The inspection report is really detail and clear with lots photo included. I will recommend to my friends if they need property inspection.
First and foremost, a huge shoutout to the rockstar Tania @ Buywise Inspections. She was the most helpful and accommodating when we mentioned to her that the inspections needed to be completed within the next 4-5 days. Instead of the expected response of not being able to manage it within the tight timeframe, Tania moved around few inspections and accommodated us within our 7 days deadline. Thank you so much for that!Our chosen package had 2 experts inspecting the property - Peter & Rohan. The reports were provided on the same evening and they were very detailed with relevant photographs to help understand the wording of the report. Along with the facts laid out in the report, Peter & Rohan also made suggestions for the future regarding the structure and pest control so as we are able to enjoy the property for a long period of time with the minimum of hassle.I highly recommend the services of Buywise Inspections.
The inspection by the team at BuyWise was conducted to a very high standard with a quick turnaround. All the staff I dealt with were extremely professional and helpful, whilst the report I received was detailed and easy to read. I would highly recommend BuyWise to anyone seeking their services.
Highly recommend Buy Wise. Both Pest and Building inspection was thoroughly conducted and reported very important issues around the property which needed attention. Definitely recommending to family and friends in future, Thanks for your services 🙂
We have used Buywise twice in the last 5 years. The quality of their work is fantastic. The reports are detailed and give you the confidence you need in making a very big and expensive decision when buying a new home. Would 100% recommend them.
Super easy to deal with and replied to my emails quickly.Sent me the pest inspection report the same day as the inspection and the building report the day after!
Great service, reliable and honest, explained everything really well
Totally stoked with these guys. Used them a few times now and it has been faultless and very professional. Most recently we had to arrange a very quick inspection, I gave them a call and it was all booked in for the next day - nice works guys, keep up the great work, we'll be back for sure. Peace.
I can't praise buy wise highly enough. The swiftness of their service and responsiveness of their managers and inspectors up to par and set standards. Thank you Tania for assisting us all along the way. I would surely use their service again. They helped us identify issues, and provided means to negotiate solutions. Regards from the BAHAR family.
We needed a comprehensive building and pest report done ahead of purchasing an older home and we couldn't be happier with both the Build and Pest inspectors (Peter and Trevor) The staff were so lovely (Tania in particular is a star) and helpful and the inspectors highly experienced and thorough. The report provided a phenomenal amount of detail which provided for an excellent discussion with the inspector around costs and timeframes associated with various issues and a great basis for negotiation. You pay for the peace of mind which in our case provided a wealth of information and saved us money.
We ordered a pest and building inspection before heading to auction for a property in Blackburn South a week ago. Every touch point with their staff was cordial and professional which was fantastic. The reports they provided were both detailed in their assessment, and useful in their description of what issues existed and whether they mattered. As a person unfamiliar with building regulations and standards this information, along with images of areas we couldn't inspect ourselves, helped us decide not to participate in the auction
We employed Buy-Wise after looking at a few different inspectors in our area. We chose them based on their professionalism. The reports presented were thorough and easy to understand. I would recommend them again. The property inspected was in Cranbourne East.
I highly recommend Buy Wise! We were first home buyers and super nervous to buy our first home. When I rang and spoke to Tania, she did absolutely everything she could to book in an urgent inspection, the whole time she was very professional and patient with me changing days and times. We then asked for a callback from Peter and he took the time to have a chat to me and answers my concerns about the property and report provided. My parents recommended this company to us after using them several times and I agree, I was very satisfied and will ensure I use them every time I buy a house in the future!
Everyone from Buywise was incredibly helpful, from Tania who arranged everything with the agent, to the two guys on site who provided an incredibly in depth report which alerted us to some (non major) issues that we can address quickly.Recommend this business to anyone needing a property inspected
Great job! Very thorough and great value.
Really happy with the inspections carried out by Peter H (major structural building) and Rohan (pest ). Couldn't attend due to Covid19 restrictions but the guys took heaps of photos and when I needed to discuss further with Peter the rising damp he was very helfpul over the phone and gave me the clarification I needed on how best to resolve it. We did end up buying the house, reduced our offer to allow for repair of the rising damp and there are other things we can now confidently address when we take possession of the property. Highly recommend and would definitely use again. The reports were provided later that day and spoke to Peter the next morning. So much better than a building inspection I did a few years ago which only told me things blind Freddy could have spotted. Peter and Rohan climb all over the house, go on and in the roof, under the houes and the photos are really useful as all the problem areas are captured for your reference.
Very responsive and quick and efficient service!
Used Buywise for a building and pest inspection in Frankston South. Didn't meet the guys, but Tania was really helpful and detailed in her explanation as to what would be undertaken. Really thorough report also provided. Would recommend and use again.
extremely detailed and thorough reports, highly recommended
It was probably the best $740 I have spent, and it saved me thousands if not 10s of thousand. From engagement to final report Buywise provided a great customer service experience.Two Buywise staff performed a very thorough inspection, drafted a detailed report and were quite patient in explaining the issues, that were discovered in the report, to a layman like me. I would strongly recommend all home buyers to have building and pest inspection before purchase. It will save you from a lot of pain in the future.
Buy wise came highly recommended by two of my work colleagues. I booked a building and pest inspection for a property in Mornington.I don’t have a lot of experience and knowledge in this area. Tania was brilliant explaining the process.I met the buy wise team at the property. They were very happy to speak with me during the inspection and talked through their findings and recommendations. They were very professional and I had full trust in their recommendations.The reports came through very quickly (despite workload). Very comprehensive reports with lots of photos.I would definitely use buy wise in the future and would highly recommend.
Used this company for a building and pest inspection on a property we were going to find. There experts found undisclosed termite damage and as a result we withdrew our offer potentially saving us thousands. They are worth every penny and will be using them again very soon.
Buywise provided an excellent service experience. Tania was fantastic and helped us navigate an extremely difficult situation. Access to the property was postponed by the vendor numerous times and made everything extremely akward. The inspectors were on time and very professional and well spoken. The report was extremely detailed and covered everything you will need. I highly recommend Buywise for all your house inspection needs. They went above and beyond for us. We were successful with the house purchase at Mornington so we are very pleased. Thank-you to the team at Buywise
Excellent customer service, prompt completion of report and very detailed.
Buywise were extremely thorough and professional - the inspections for both major structural and pest were highly detailed, very accurate and helped me to make a well-informed offer on an older property with some issues. Their helpful staff were not only happy to discuss and explain the findings but also took an interest, following up with me to see what I had decided regarding the property. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone as a well priced, quality service.
Referred and highly recommend by our friends. Now I will do the same. We are impressed with the professionalism and attention to details of the Buy-Wise Inspection technicians and office staff. Objective, timely and detailed report after inspection. We followed up over the phone with a office staff who went through our questions in patience and details. Very reassuring.
I found the team to be very helpful and professional
Helped us find a nice property in Frankston that did not require much work or expense. They also saved us from buying a couple of money pits over the past few months. Detailed reports and prompt service.
Buy Wise were fantasic with getting my building and pest inspection done quickly and thoroughly. They responded to me after hours when I was in a sticky situation having to pull out of a contract and were with me all the way thru the process. Would recommend to anyone. Great service.
We have had four houses inspected by Buy Wise now, because they are so incredibly thorough, friendly, knowledgable and professional. When making such a huge investment, you want to know exactly what you are buying!
Very professional and detailed. We've used the team for two home inspections and both were very thorough and detailed that provided us with the insights needed to make the right choice!
I would highly recommend the prompt service and great value for this building and pest report by this company.Very thorough and great peace of mind with my sale and purchase.Friendly reliable service.Thankyou again.
Great service. Used them three times for three separate houses, including the one we now own, each time they delivered detailed reports within the timeframe.
Great service, did exactly as they said, prompt on time and gave us valuable feedback, recomended business and I would use again for sure
Excellent service and well worth the money. Will definitely recommend
highly recommend, totally stress free, fast and detailed.
Great work and really value suggestions. We had few inspection in Glen, Tania helped to manage the inspection before the deadline!
Rang up Monday morning to book an inspection for a prospective property in Mount Eliza. They were on site Tuesday midday with a beagle. The report was available late Tuesday night. I eagerly read the report Wednesday morning and proceeded to purchase the 3048sqm property in Mount Eliza. Very impressed with the reports and advice. Highly recommended.
Peter and Rohan were excellent at what they do and spotted the problem with the house the minute they started the inspection. I wanted to do some renovations on the house and wanted to see if anything needs to be fixed structurally. The reports were very detailed, with actions to take to fix the issue. Would definitely recommend Buy Wise for their professional work! Cheers!
Buy wise conducted a very thorough report for us on a house in frankston we went to auction on. The house looked in good condition but we found out the structure was not as good as we hoped and also had termite damage so the team from buy wise Peter, Jason and beagle Penny helped us set a relistic limit on how much we should max our bid at. Thank you all from the team of buy wise. We highly recommend them to anyone who wants to live in a good strong house.
We requested a number of property inspections over the last 18 months, in preparation for purchase. Every time we have engaged their services they have been very professional, very prompt and very understanding to our specific needs.
Thanks again for the inspection at our new home . Great service and good price for a serious decision!
The experience with Peter Tania and the team has been amazing. They are not only very knowledgeable and professional in their jobs, but have been very supportive and patient in answering our questions as first home buyers. The reports provided after the inspections (building and pest) were thorough and easy to understand. Thanks a lot! Definitely will be our go-to person if we ever purchase again in this area!
Peter and Rohan completed our building and pest inspections last week (comprehensive combined with termite detection dog). The reports were very comprehensive and useful for us to understand the areas of the property that needed repair or replacement. Peter was available for a discussion of the building inspection results afterwards to provide clarification where needed (there were no significant pest related issues). Based on the report and the subsequent discussion, we felt very well informed about the state of the property and likely financial liability for maintenance and replacements, and we were confident that we could make the right decision regarding the purchase of the property. We would highly recommend using Buywise.
I have used Buy Wise twice already and have been extremely happy with the service. Their reports are detailed and are prepared with great professionalism.
Quick and efficient to undertake our building & pest inspection and produce in-depth reports on findings, prior to us purchasing an established property in Frankston.Excellent service and communications both prior to and post inspections. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again prior to any future property purchases.
Building and pest report was very detailed. Extremely happy with the service provided. Highly recommend
Thank you! Very professional!Inspector was master of details,report created also easy to understand! We are very happy with building and termite inspection of our new home!Endevour hills.Highly recommended👍👍👍
I like this place and the people. Friendly office staff and professional inspectors. I will definitely go back to this place when I need them again.
We had a great experience dealing with the whole Buy Wise team, from the initial bookings, through to detailed reports and being able to speak with the inspectors afterwards to clarify details of the report.Whilst we didn't get the home we were hoping to, our reports from Buy Wise significantly helped us inform our decisions whether to proceed with this property and the areas we would need to look at further. I'd have no hesitation in recommending and using them again!
The service was beyond great. Thank you so much for your work and help. Thank you Berlinda, Peter, Rohan and Penny.
I booked BuyWise for an inspection on a place in Frankston I was purchasing. I found them to be professional, courteous and very knowledgable; from the staff on the phone to the technicians and engineers themselves. The communication via email and phone was prompt and kept me informed every step of the process - they made it easy. I would use them again in a heartbeat!
Great communication and most of all detailed checks made on the property in Endeavour Hills.Photos and explanations well done.Recommended and would use again.
I urgently needed a pre-purchase inspection and buywise was the only place willing to help me in such short notice. They went above and beyond providing such fantastic service. Totally recommend them to anyone who wants superb services from a lovely bunch of people. Thank you so much, I am definitely one grateful customer.
Thank you to Belinda and the team at Buy Wise. Super professional to deal with. The inspections were booked quickly, the reports were available within hours and for me they identified some major structural defects in the house I was interested in and saved me some serious headaches. I will definitely be using Buy Wise for a pre purchase inspection again!
Great service, definitely recommend!!!
Great Service, best building inspectors I have ever seen. Belinda also extremely helpful from office end. Highly reccomanded
Quick service. Friendly staff.
Buy Wise were fantastic. I used them a couple of times and on both occasions they were very thorough, professional and the building and pest reports were very detailed. The gentlemen completing the inspections were friendly and overall great customer service. Belle is a star.
Why can't I give more than 5 stars. Absolutely brilliant with their service, detailed reporting, appropriate response, timeliness, clarity in communication and going beyond in everything they do.The quality of the report and the detailed suggestions is pretty impressive. To validate what I am saying, the Conveyancer I am working with has seen plenty of these reports and said that its the best (not just one of the best).I wouldn't shy away from recommending them for the inspection services they provide.
Easy, quick turnaround and helpful
We had a building and pest inspection done on a property prior to purchase in Mornington. These guys were really great! They had really good customer service which was prompt and easily available. They did a really thorough inspection in a short turn around time (within 48 hours). The report was very detailed and included lots of photo in the roof, on the roof, the outside and inside the property. We've been able to get some issues with the property fixed up prior to settlement due to this report which has saved us on trades already. And it's actually really handy just to see what maintenance tasks we need to prioritize after purchasing the property. Highly recommend this company.
Buy Wise were great! We were well looked after by Belinda, who in all our interactions was personable, articulate and prompt in all responses. As a first time home buyer, going through this new process, it gave me confidence. Peter and Rohan's reports were also really straight forward and clear about what was and wasn't covered with sound recommendations and suggestions for each of their findings. I will definitely use them again.
We had a foundation check and pest inspection for our home residence on the Mornington Peninsula. All the folk we dealt with at Buy Wise were prompt, efficient and helpful. Would not hesitate to use their service again. Peter, Mornington Peninsula.
I couldn’t be happier with the service from the team at Buywise! I spent hours trawling the internet to find a licensed building inspector and ended up with a total dud who spent about half hour there with no tools and refused to even look under the house... unfortunately, the building inspection industry is unregulated and there are a lot of unlicensed charlatans out there ready to rip you for what is easily the biggest purchase you will ever make in your lifetime... After my horrible experience, my sister suggested I give Bel a call at Buywise and she took care of everything from there. Peter and Rohan came out with their sniffer beagle Penny and did the most thorough job - they were there for almost three hours combing through the entire place, explaining things along the way. They were absolutely fantastic! And because of their comprehensive report and approximate price guide to bring the property up to scratch, I managed to purchase my home for $50K less than the asking price! Happily recommend this business to anyone. Thanks again!
Fantastic customer service! Provided pest inspection within 24 hours and received the extremely detailed report the same day. Highly recommend!
Great company to deal with - all services well explained by Belinda and turnaround time was fantastic. Highly recommended.
I found buy wise building and pest inspections to be very friendly with great customer service.The reports for the inspections were very thorough as there was a lot of details and photos.I would highly recommend buy wise to anyone looking for a building and pest inspection.
I used this company back to 2013, ver happy with the services they provided and detailed report. Now I need to do another inspection so I searched my email record and happy to know the company is still in market and still gets very positive feedbacks. Hope it's not too late to give my feedback!
This is the third inspection we've had done by Buy Wise Inspections and every time we have been very impressed with the service from the moment you call them to getting a comprehensive report with pictures where it is clear the inspection has been very thorough. The agent mentioned that Buy Wise is also great to deal with from their side. Highly recommend them.
My partner and I were very happy with the professional service provided by Buy Wise. We had both a building inspection and pest inspection done on a property we were about to purchase. We also paid a small amount extra to have one of their sniffer dogs present at the inspections to give their expert opinion as well! We were provided with full reports with photos outlining the outcome of the inspections. While there were minimal issues with the property, it was well worth getting the inspections done for peace of mind. I'd definitely recommend Buy Wise to any one.
Both Peter and Rohan were excellent; very professional, and gave us a fantastic explanation and run-through of the issues they had found with the property. They were able to give us enough information and advice on the day of inspection to enable us to make the decision regarding whether to proceed. The reports were ready in less than 24 hours, full of photos and detailed, easy-to-understand information.I would have no hesitation in contacting Buy Wise again for any building or pest inspections
We engaged the services of Buy Wise to do the building and pest inspection for our first home purchase. We were extremely happy with their very professional and friendly service. From initial enquiry, to booking, to the inspection and to getting the inspection report, we were really impressed with their impeccable service.We would like to commend Belinda who is very cheerful, lovely and pleasant to talk with. She made the process very easy for us who are first home buyers. She was very helpful, always ready to answer our questions and even gave us some tips which were very handy for us. Keep up the good work Belinda!We would also like to commend Rohan who did the inspection. He is very knowledgeable and explained to us in detail about their findings. The report was sent to us promptly within 24 hours. It was very detailed and helpful. Thanks Peter for the very helpful report.Overall, we are very happy with the service of Buy Wise. Highly recommended. Thank you again Belinda and the team for the awesome service!
I would highly recommend Buy Wise. I used their service twice and it has really been a smooth process with extremely prompt organisation of the inspections. The reports are detailed and provided me enough information to make my decision. Thank you Buy Wise team.Bun
From the moment Belinda picked up the phone, we felt looked after. Peter and Rohan were very professional and thoroughly inspected the home. Peter provided us with sound advice and next steps to consider. The report was provided to us within 24 hours and had all the details we needed to make a decision on purchasing the home. Belinda followed this up with a phone call to make sure we understood everything on the report and gave us extra tips for consideration.All in all, we are extremely satisfied with their service and would recommend them to anyone looking for a building inspector.
I just used Buy wise to inspect a property i purchased under clause Building and Pest. I am so grateful i did, because of how thorough they were, i was able to negotiate the price because of the issues i would not have otherwise known about before too late and after paying full price.Not only are they thorough, they took every phone call and answered every question and directed me to the right places for the right advice.The customer service is impeccable before AND after the fact.HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND! and "Belle" is INCREDIBLE and so supportive in what was such a stressful time.I can not rav highly enough!
Cannot recommend Buy Wise enough. Professional, prompt and thorough. My inspection was tailored perfectly for the architecture of our home. Thank you Buy Wise team.
Over the past month we have used Buywise twice. On both occasions we found the reports provided to be thorough.Money well spent as the first inspection saved us from buying a home that would have needed up to $70, 000 worth of repairs in order to replace decaying flooring! Inspector phoned personally that evening to inform us of the problem.Second time round we were satisfied with the details of the report and ended up buying the property.All staff are friendly and professional. Thanks Buywise for helping us make an informative stress free decision in buying a house.
Thank you BuyWise for our help with our Building & Pest Inspections. Buying an investment property can be a stressful experience, however, you really helped making this part of the process super simple and stress free.Thanks,Hayley & Cameron
Excellent service!
When I'm not exploring I want to know the house I bough will still be there when I return. Buy-Wise were great and highly recommended
The buywise team were terrific all round, with a rapid turnaround time within 48 h. The building inspection was extremely detailed with the key points explained in simple language. Definitely recommend.
Buywise provided a great service. They were able to do the inspection when required, provided a thorough verbal update on the day and sent through the detailed report shortly after.
Fast service....!!!
The review was fantastic. It was so helpful and pointed out some really crucial areas, which in the end, made us decide not to buy. I think if we had gone ahead we would have been up for some hefty bills. The review was thorough and made very helpful suggestions. I will definitely recommend your company. In fact when my daughter bought a few years ago she used your services and gave us the recommendation. Thank you once again.
Peter and the team at Buy Wise went above and beyond with top quality service, from my initial enquiry through to the comprehensive reports and detailed calls from the building inspector and the pest inspector. Everything was well explained with no detail spared. I feel confident to recommend them.
During my house-hunting process, I have used Buy Wise on two different occasions for pre-purchase building and pest inspections. Both times, I have received excellent customer service and prompt e-mail responses to my enquiries. Additionally, the team have been extremely accommodating to the time frames in which I needed the inspections to be completed. I can't recommend Buy Wise highly enough and would not hesitate to use them again in the future.
good customer service. fantastic people to get the job done . they helped me out in urgent situation. thanks a lot guys.
Fantastic customer service, Very detailed reports.I've had Buy Wise conduct structural building, and pest reports on 2 properties in the last few months.We pulled out of the purchase for the first property because of major issues found in the inspection. Which has saved us a massive amount of time and money that would have been spend on repairs.The estate agent also told us they are too detailed and he would not allow us to use them again to inspect any of his properties!!!Would recommend them to anyone!
The team at Buy Wise Inspections did a fantastically detailed pre-purchase inspection with lots of photos and clear descriptions. They where very easy contact and very friendly and helpful. I will be recommending them to my friends and family.
