Buying a home is an exciting time. Once you find a home you love, there are a series of checklist items to go through before closing, and we suggest adding a pest real estate inspection to that list, here’s why.
- Peace of Mind – Buying a new home can be exciting, but also scary. You’re not 100% sure that the previous owners didn’t have any underlying issues with their home or are disclosing problematic information. By having a pest real estate inspection, you can have peace of mind that your home doesn’t have any pest infestations.
- Prevention – Even after purchasing a home, it’s always a good idea to have a routine pest inspection. Having a routine inspection, even if you aren’t currently concerned with pests, can be preventative. A professional can tell you any potential areas that may become a pest issue in the future.
- Financial Protection – If your pest real estate inspection comes back with serious underlying issues, you can then relay the financial responsibility of this issue to the homeowner to address and fix before you purchase.
- Value – Having routine inspections and ensuring there are no pests issues within your home can preserve the value of your home. It shows that there are not any current issues, and that you have preserved a well-kept house.
