The Confidence of Having a Termite-Free House Prior to Sale

Are you thinking about putting your property up for sale? What better way to add more value to your home than providing the assurance of a pre-sale termite inspection report. Save time and avail of a definite advantage by providing an inspection report to your prospective purchasers.

Isn’t it nice if you are not worried about the buyer’s pest inspector finding termite activity? It is best that you provide a copy of the inspection report to your real estate agent or attach a copy on the auction conditions sign board.

Property Inspections: What do they involve?

The primary purpose of pre-sale inspection is to find out if a property is free from termites, borers and fungal decay with the use of non-invasive assessment methods such as thermal imaging cameras and moisture meters.

Here are the accessible areas that professional inspectors look at:

  • Indoor Areas
  • Outdoor Areas
  • Timbers on the roof
  • Under the floor
  • Garages
  • Outbuildings (sheds and workshops)

Aside from inspecting all of the areas in your property that are visible in plain site, another thing that is done during an inspection is to look for any conducive conditions that will make your home more desirable to pests.

It is imperative that homeowners know the importance of a building and pest inspection clause in the property sale contracts. This is due to the fact that buyers tend to renegotiate when they find out about structural faults and the property’s lack of termite protection.

This is why pre-sale inspections are important. Get your home inspected before putting it up for sale to help you identify problems and find a solution.
