Buying a home is one of the most significant moments you’ll experience in life. You now have a home that you can settle down in and maybe raise a family. You’ve invested so much into making this dream come true, but there’s one thing never to overlook when making this large purchase – a termite inspection.
Not many people consider a termite inspection as part of the overall home inspection, when in fact, a termite inspection is one of the more common contingencies in a real estate contract. Termites cause over $5 billion dollars in damage annually in the US. That’s why more and more lenders are offering loans only with a mandatory termite inspection, such as a VA loan, which requires a termite inspection to be performed in all home purchases.
Far too often in the past, a termite inspection was overlooked, leaving the new owner in a world of hurt. Thankfully, as we grow wiser, more and more owners are checking for termites and other wood destroying insects when buying a home.
Imagine how upsetting it would be to learn that termites have been munching on your beloved home. This is not a problem you can afford to ignore. They will continue to do what they do, and the problem will only get worse.
The same can be said for any pests – from ants to mice. Bring in a professional like The Bug Man, stop termites in their tracks and repair the damage before the sale. While ants and mice are not a huge concern and can be rectified relatively easily, wood destroying insects are not something to fool around with because of their ability to destroy the structural integrity of a home.
