Tri-County Pest Control: How Real Estate and Pest Control Go Hand-in-Hand
In today’s already volatile real estate market, any small detail left unnoticed can leave your home sitting on
the market for months, even years. This includes any damage from pests you may not have known existed. Whether you’re currently in the market for a new home, or selling yours, here are some items to pay attention to in terms of pest control and how we can help:
For Home Buyers – Have a certified pest control technician from Tri-County fully inspect the home you are eyeing. Additionally, inquire with the sellers as to when they last had a pest control company inspect the home. Our IPM (Integrated Pest Management) Specialists will look for damage to the property from such pests as beetles, carpenter ants and termites. Our IPMs will also seek out problems that could breed other types of pests, such as standing water or damp areas – inviting ants, spiders and mice. We will then provide a report of any damage caused by pests to you.
For Home Sellers – Before putting your house on the market, we encourage you to call us here at Tri-County to come out and provide a full pest inspection of your home. Buyers will appreciate you took this extra step, which will make the overall process earlier for you. If the case is you have already moved and left the home vacant, we encourage you to call us for preventative pest maintenance. Pests are most like to take up residence if the primary resident has found another home!
Whether you’re a buyer or seller, we would hate to see your real estate negotiations squashed due to pests issues. Give us a call and we’ll come out for an inspection so you’ll have one more item checked off your list in what can be a stressful and arduous process.
