At Hart Pest Control, we know that buying a home is a massive step– obviously.
You’re spending your hard-earned money on a house that will last you for years to come, providing you and your loved ones with shelter and comfort.
Unfortunately, something small can quickly ruin that ideal home, which only leads to your new home transforming into a building with four walls that you don’t want to between. What is that small thing?
I’m talking about pests. Keep reading below to learn more if you don’t believe how destructive pests can be to a new home.
Four Reasons To Get a Pest Inspection…
1. Avoid Any Future Regret
A scenario where you’d regret spending a large amount of your money after seeing a dozen rodents crawl out of crevices isn’t hard to imagine. When you buy a home, you’re expecting it to be clean and safely house your family, right?
Getting a pest inspection can ensure that’s what you receive.
2. Understand the Pest Problems Beforehand
A pest infestation is at its worst when you’re not expecting it. Yes, it’s an unwanted situation whether you know about it beforehand or not. However, knowing ahead of time can help you prepare yourself and possibly pest control services.
It also gives you an expert's opinion on how much the pest situation will cost to resolve.
3. Have Leverage in Your Negotiations
With a pest inspection, you’ll come to understand the value of the home you’re buying.
It’ll give you a thorough look at what’s inside the walls instead of just what you can see on the outside, which will give you a more accurate picture of the home’s value.
If you find out that the home has pests, you may be able to negotiate for a lower price with the seller. Or you may be able to request they have pest control done on the home before closing. That way, you can be sure you don’t walk into a pest-filled home.
4. Uncover Issues
You may have missed some things during your walkthrough. It happens all the time. Unfortunately, it can leave you with a problem that you weren’t expecting before. That’s where a pest inspection can come in handy.
An inspection will reveal many of the things you may have missed or reinforce what you already found. Either way, the information will only aid you.
