“Before buying any home in Goodyear…I would get a termite inspection!”
Given the destructive nature of termites getting a yearly Goodyear termite inspection should be a no-brainer. Experts recommend that every home be inspected at least once a year especially homes recently service or with a history of termite infestation.
Consumers who have recently had service or purchased a new home treated as part of the construction process are often left with a false sense of security. Educated homeowners are aware that Goodyear is home to 17 different types of termites and each species is unique. Because each species is so different effective eradication methods must be specific to the target species. Treating the soil around the foundation can stop subterranean type termites however, it have little effect on other species including the most destructive found in North America.
Even with no Arizona law requiring a Goodyear termite inspection for the sale or purchase your lender may require a termite inspection report as a condition of your loan. After all…the lender technically owns the home until it is paid off and they must act to protect their investment.
Given the destructive nature of termites in Goodyear…a termite inspection report can be valuable tool in making the proper home buying decision. Nobody wants to buy an infested home, nor do they want to discover hidden damage after moving in to their “dream home.”

A good report will list evidence of current infestation, the presence of termite damage, past activity, conditions conducive to future infestation and available termite history.
