We offer detailed and thorough inspections as well as local and complete treatments (and fumigation) depending on your needs.
Many experienced agents and careful sellers request a pre-listing inspection to find any possible issues that may compromise the sale of a property.
Here are some of the advantages of getting a pre-listing inspection:
- Allows you to correct infestations, damage, and defects prior to listing your property
- Allows you to maximize your sale price because you can negotiate with full knowledge of the properties’s condition
- When you’ve identified and corrected issues, you’ll compare more favorably against similar listings
- A “clear” pest report can widen the pool of prospective buyers
- With knowledge of issues, you’ll be able to set the listing price accordingly, reflecting the truer value
- You’ll decrease the chance of a buyer getting “cold feet” and backing out when the issues are discovered later in the process, instead of right up front
Most buyers, realtors and lenders recommend or request a termite inspection at time of making an offer to find if there are any infestations or costly repairs.
A major advantage to getting a purchase inspection is to better understand the condition of property and potential costs of treatment and/or repairs.
Our reports list active infestations (section 1 items), issues conducive to infestation (section 2), inaccessible areas in need of further inspection (section 3) and relevant informational items (section 4). Each item addressed is followed with a recommendation and the cost of some items may be estimated upon request.
Most reports are faxed and/or emailed (PDF format) the following business day and and a hard copy is sent via US Mail upon request.
