Why you should check for pests before you invest

Buying a house is probably the biggest investment you’ll ever make, and a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly by Perth’s homeowners. Before investing, it’s important to know that your prospective home is fault-free and unlikely to cause problems further down the line. Getting a property inspected for pests before you invest can save potential buyers a lot of financial hassle. After all, you want to know that your new investment is YOUR home, and not home to unwelcome pests that could be costing you thousands of dollars in damage. This is why it’s important to organise a pre-purchase inspection with your local pest control experts before you make the big move.

Why check before you invest?

Not only could destructive pests cost you thousands of dollars of damage, they can also pose serious structural issues within your new home. Take termites for example – Perth’s favourite timber pests will eat away at the wooden structures of your house from the inside out, and can go months or even years unnoticed. Organising a pre-purchase pest inspection with your local pest control experts can help reduce financial risk for potential investors and provide Perth homeowners with peace of mind that their new home is safe, fault-free and rid of pests.

The benefits of pre-purchase inspection

Professional pest controllers will be able to assess areas of your investment for timber pest problems, and will provide you with a full report outlining the status of your potential property. A pre-purchase inspection can provide the following benefits:

  • Peace of mind – Reassurance you’re making a worthwhile and safe investment for you and your family.
  • Informed decision – By inspecting your future home for pest damage, our technicians can help you make an informed decision about the value of your investment. They can also pinpoint any problems in a timber pest report. This could be useful later on when it comes to negotiating the price of your future property with sellers.
  • Advice – As well as advising you on the current status of your potential investment, pest controllers can also provide you with advice on how to protect your prospective property from future pest infestations.
  • A written record – Pest controllers will provide Perth homeowners with a timber pest report outlining any damage within the property. They will also identify any inaccessible areas at risk of future pest attack.
