Buying a San Diego home? Search all homes for sale
You’ve listed your home for sale and received an offer. Congrats! However, there’s still one key thing you need to do, and if you don’t, you’ll regret it.
That one thing is a pest control report.
I’d say that about 80% of buyers now want to see a pest control report or termite clearance when shopping for homes. I even see some people agree to termite clearances without even knowing the cost. One time years ago, we had a termite clearance bid of about $160,000. Can you imagine if that owner had agreed to sell the house with that clearance without first getting that report?
80% of today’s buyers want to see a pest control report first.
That’s why it’s such a good idea to get that report performed even before you agree to give clearance. The average pest control estimate is around $2,000, but it can vary a whole lot.
We always get that report up front with our clients for this very reason.
If you’re thinking of buying or selling a home here in San Diego, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I’d be glad to help however I can.
