Sun City Termite Inspection
“There are two types of homes in Sun City…those with termites and those that are going to get termites!”
When it comes to termites Arizona has a national reputation and for good reason. Anyone considering the purchase of a home in Sun City Arizona should request a Sun City termite inspection report prior to making the final buying decision. There is no law requiring a termite inspection report prior to the purchase of any home in Arizona. Occasionally a lender may require a report as a condition of the loan…other than that termite reports in general are elective in Arizona.
Nobody wants to buy a termite infested home, nor do they want to discover hidden termite damage after moving into their dream home. The best protection is to order a termite inspection report prior to making the final buying decision.
Educated buyers and experienced realtors should insist upon a thorough termite inspection and a complete inspection report prior to agreeing to purchase any structure in Sun City Arizona.
The Sonoran Desert is home to several (17-25) species of termites. Most Sun City 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.
In addition to termites, Sun City 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 Sun City Termite Inspection exterminators are the same. When considering the purchase of any structure in Sun City Arizona do a little research and select a termite company with the experience and reputation to provide a thorough termite inspection and report.
A proper Sun City 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 Sun City 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 in Sun City 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.
