About Us

whak2Hi there!  Marty Barlow here, business owner and franchisee manager for HABiT Whakatane, ph:  (07) 312-5533 (landline), or (027) 496-7062 (mobile).

I am pleased to be offering Home Inspection and Building report services through the Whakatane district and surrounding region - up and down the coast through to Pukehina, across to the Rotoma’s including Kawerau and Edgecumbe and down through Opotiki to the East cape.

I am an experienced and qualified Tradesman Builder and Licensed Building Practitioner and have been working in and around the Building and Construction Industry for around 25 years as a builder, and in project and contracts management around New Zealand and abroad.

As a homeowner and local for around 8 years, I have become aware of the need for home inspection services for potential house buyers.  It is becoming a requirement and due diligence on behalf of potential purchasers to information gather about their investment.  HABiT provides these services, carrying out a thorough, ‘non-invasive’ property inspection and compiling a comprehensive and professional plain English building report with little technical building terminology and plenty of images as reference for clients.

HABiT building reports are an ‘as is’ report of a buildings condition and are carried out and presented back to clients within 24 hours of an actual onsite inspection.  A HABiT inspection offers peace of mind around the condition of a property and any areas that may require attention in the near future, as well as providing a real time stocktake of the building itself and its chattels.  From this clients are free to use the information to make an informed and accurate assessment of any property for purchase.

HABiT Whakatane has the expertise and backing of an experienced and knowledgeable team based from our Head Office in Wellington and spread throughout all major centres in New Zealand.  We are skilled specialists in the field of building assessing, inspections and reporting and offer a network of information available to all ongoing customers and individual clients.

Feel free to contact me anytime for any further information, advice or to book an inspection.  I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Have a great day!
