Home & Termite Inspections for Real Estate Agents
If you are representing a buyer, you should definitely request a termite inspection. To the naked eye, a building could look like it is in excellent condition. If there are termite colonies in the structure, the entire building could end up collapsing. The only way to prevent this from happening is by finding and treating an infestation early on. Sellers may want to avoid an inspection because they do not want to pay for repairs or treatment costs, so real estate agents have to be firm in asking for an inspection.
