Mesa Termite Inspection
“There are two types of homes in Mesa, those with termites and those that are going to get termites!”
While there is no law requiring a written termite inspection report for the sale or purchase of a home in Mesa, your lender may require a report as a condition of the loan. An experienced Realtor should recommend getting a Mesa termite inspection to all his/her clients.
Given the destruction Mesa termites create…having a termite inspection report can be the determining factor in the 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.”
Mesa is home to at least 17 species of termites. Some Mesa termite inspectors are only familiar with the one or two more common Mesa termites, leaving the potential for inexperienced termite inspectors to overlook infestations and/or hidden termite damage.
Mesa is home to other wood eating insects such as Carpenter Ants, wood boring beetles and Carpenter Bees etc. An inexperienced Mesa termite inspector can overlook obvious signs of infestation or damage from these pests.
Not all Mesa Termite Inspection exterminators are the same. When considering the purchase of any home in Mesa do some research and select a termite company with the experience and reputation to provide a thorough termite inspection and report.
A proper home termite inspection at a minimum should take 30 minutes; the average home can take 1-2 hours depending upon circumstances such as location, history, construction type etc.
Complete Mesa termite inspection reports contain two pages of written information along with a detailed diagram listing problem areas and conditions conducive to future termite infestation.
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.
