Surprise Termite Inspection
“Before you agree to purchase any home in Surprise you better get a good termite inspection!”
Getting a termite inspection prior to buying any home in Surprise should be a no-brainer. Most of Surprise was raw Arizona desert prior to construction of large sub divisions and business centers. Termites were present prior to this construction in modest numbers. This new construction has provided additional moisture, shelter from the desert heat and more food sources for Arizona termites. As a result the demand for termite control services in Surprise is at epidemic levels.
No one wants to buy a termite infested home, nor do they want to discover hidden termite damage after moving in to their “dream home.” Educated home buyers and realtors should insist upon a thorough termite inspection and a complete inspection report prior to agreeing to purchase any structure in Surprise.
The Sonoran Desert is home to Surprise and several species of termites. Most Surprise 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.
Surprise also has 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 Surprise termite exterminators are the same. When considering the purchase of any home in Surprise do your own research and select a termite company with the experience and reputation to provide a thorough termite inspection and report.
A thorough Surprise 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 Surprise 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 Surprise home is accepted by the seller…the buyer has ten days to complete a termite inspection report. Your Surprise 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.
