It is a fun experience to buy the home of your dreams, and many new homeowners want to finalize the sale as quickly as possible. Even though you are anxious to have the keys in hand, don’t overlook the importance of inspecting the property to avoid potential issues. This due-diligence will give you the peace of mind that you are investing in a quality home.

Why Termite Inspection is Essential

Even though the home might seem to be in good condition, you never know what is lurking in the walls. Add termite inspection to your to-do list so that you can identify any signs of infestation.

Termites are not only annoying, but they can also lead to serious damage to your home. These insects can cause issues that will result in thousands of dollars in repair. In fact, termite repairs can be more expensive compared to other types of natural disasters.

Homeowners insurance policies often exclude termite damage, which means that you will need to foot the bill. So, you need to be sure that your new home is free of termites so that you don’t need to carry the responsibility of pest control and repairs after you move in.

Early Detection Will Save You Money

If we complete the inspection and find termites in the home, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you shouldn’t purchase the property. Instead, it can be good information that can be helpful with your negotiations.

Many times, we can identify the termite problem in the early stages. Then, pest control treatments can be used to eradicate the insects so that you can move in without a worry. The costs of the pest control services can be built into your negotiations as you are working on the details of the real estate deal.

It is important that you take action right away if any termites are identified in the property. We can help with the best treatment, giving you a safe, comfortable home to share with your family.
