When you purchase a new home, you may be willing to take on the minor repairs and upgrades, but there can be some conditions that are not worth your time or money such as termite infestation and the damage they can cause. The 3 reasons below highlight why it is essential to hire a licensed termite inspector before you sign on the dotted line.

The Current Owner May Not Be Aware They Have Termites

Termites are sneaky little creatures, so an infestation can go unnoticed if you do not know what to look for when you have one. For this reason the current home owner may not be aware that they have termites, and in turn what needs to be done to resolve the infestation and repair the damage they have caused.

A Licensed Termite Inspector Knows What To Look For

Homes are appraised and inspected during the selling process, but a termite infestation is not always and easy thing to identify. Sometimes termites are only in a small area of the home, which may go unnoticed by a standard inspector. However, a licensed termite professional will spend their time looking for signs of termites as well as identifying any areas of opportunity.

It May Change Your Decision

Even if you find your dream home, the presence of termites may be a deal breaker. Once termites are eliminated, the damage they leave behind can be quite pricy. In fact, some homeowner’s successfully eliminate the termites themselves with over the counter products—without realizing the long-term damage to their home.

Depending on the severity of the damage, you may still opt to purchase a home with a past or current termite infestation but asked for a reduced selling price.

You want to go into the purchase of your new home, knowing that it is move-in ready and that it is in sound condition. Even if you do not mind a fixer upper, termites may be a deal breaker. To give yourself adequate peace of mind, hire a licensed termite inspector prior to making your final decision.
