One of the most daunting aspects of purchasing a home is the chance of hidden costs. While it helps to have a little cushion in your budget to take on any surprise repairs, there are a few possible expenses you should definitely know about before buying a home, because they could be potential deal breakers in your decision to go through with the purchase.

Why is an Arkansas pest control company talking about the home buying process?

Because we’ve seen too many blindsided by one major hidden cost: termite and pest infestations. Before you ever purchase a home, have a pest control professional survey the home for any signs of termite damage or an infestation. If the problem isn’t too extensive, the homeowner should be able to have it fixed before you make your purchase. Should there be evidence of a more serious pest problem though, you may want to walk away from a potentially expensive and unsanitary situation.

Under no circumstances should you ever purchase an infested home without a pest control technician-approved plan to have the problem remedied.

Regardless of how perfect the home is, the negative impact of the pests will completely ruin all positive aspects of the house if they are not taken care of. If you’re buying a new home and would like a pest control expert to help with your decision, give us a call at 1-800-GOT-BUGS. Also, if you’re trying to sell your home, we’d love to help you ensure your home is pest-free and more attractive to buyers by evaluating your house and performing necessary treatments at reasonable price.
