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.
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.
