Before You Close on Your New Home

At long last, you decided to purchase your own home, but before you close on your new home we have some advice. First, let us congratulate you! Buying a new home is a big accomplishment and your home will be one of your most valuable financial assets. To protect your investment, you should do everything you can to maintain and preserve its value. There is nothing worse than purchasing the house of your dreams only to later find an unknown pest infestation nightmare. Without a trained eye, it is easy to miss signs of pests when you do your walk-through.

Many areas require that a home inspection be completed before the house can be sold. This primarily involves the house being checked for a variety of issues, including having a strong foundation, sufficient roofing, and no structural issues. What many home inspectors don’t check for is pests. The people that do home inspections are trained to ensure that coding requirements are met and you there are no serious issues or concerns. If a home inspector notices signs of pests, they may inform you, yet, again, most home inspectors are not pest control experts.

How To Find Out If You Have Pests Before You Close On Your New Home?

Well, for some pests, if you have ever had them, you can do some checking yourself before you close on your new home. For example, roaches leave distinctive droppings in the usual places – the kitchen cabinets, for example. If you see this, you know roaches have been there.

Mice or rat droppings will likely have been cleaned up by the homeowner so you may not be able to see that, but there are other signs you may not be aware of. That is why it is best to schedule a free home inspection with Priority Pest Services. Contact us to schedule an appointment!
