Goodyear Termite Inspection
“Before buying any home in Goodyear…I would get a termite inspection!”
Even with no Arizona law requiring a termite inspection report for the sale or purchase of a structure in Goodyear Arizona, your lender may require a termite inspector to complete a termite inspection report as a condition of your loan.
Regardless…given the destructive nature of Goodyear termites…a termite inspection report is a valuable tool in making the proper home buying decision. Nobody wants to buy a termite infested home, nor do they want to discover hidden termite damage after moving in to their “dream home.”
Educated buyers and realtors should insist upon a thorough termite inspection and a complete inspection report prior to agreeing to purchase any structure in Goodyear. A good report will list evidence of current infestation, the presence of termite damage and termite history.
The Sonoran Desert is home to several (17-25) species of termites. Most Goodyear termite inspectors are only familiar with one or two of the more common Arizona termites. This leaves the potential for an inexperienced termite inspector to overlook a termite infestation and/or hidden termite damage.
Goodyear is home to other wood eating insects such as Carpenter Ants, wood boring beetles and Carpenter Bees etc. An inexperienced termite inspector can overlook obvious signs of infestation or damage from these pests.
Not all Goodyear termite exterminators are the same. When considering the purchase of any home in Goodyear do your research and select a Goodyear termite company with the experience and reputation to provide a thorough termite inspection and report.
Complete Goodyear termite inspection reports contain two pages of written information and a detailed diagram listing problem areas and conditions conducive to future termite infestation.
Valuable information about evidence of previous treatments and termite history should be included in the report.
When an offer to purchase a home is accepted by the seller…the buyer has ten days to complete a termite inspection report. The termite inspection should be ordered and/or completed within the first couple days to allow the buyer(s) time to review the findings along with sufficient time for follow-up inspections.
If corrective actions and/or a termite treatment are necessary the buyer should insist upon selecting the termite exterminator as they will be dealing with that company in the future. A seller’s motivation is to select the cheapest solution as they typically pay for the service.
Corrective actions and/or termite treatments should be completed prior to the buyer(s) taking possession of the home.
