(1) One of the things which will destroy your investment is a termite infestation.
Not so long ago, it was always assumed that the seller paid for the inspection and termite repairs.
(2) Termite impacts re-sale values.
This is how real estate was conducted, until recently. Now, both are negotiable.
If we are in a hot real estate seller’s market, we are going to find that buyers are paying for their own termite inspection and also for the termite remedy/repairs.
If we are in a hot real estate buyer’s market, the seller will happily pick up the tab for both services hoping their home will close escrow so they can move on.
In the Santa Clarita Valley, we have worked with a lot of pest control and termite inspectors.
During the past few months, we switched and are working with someone who is absolutely amazing and very different from who we had been giving our business to.
Top Santa Clarita Pest control and termite company
Frank Martinez with Braveheart Termite and Pest Control in the Santa Clarita Valley is one who should be commended.
He has been a breath of fresh air in the pest control industry. Frank has a friendly staff, always shows up on time and keeps a strong calendar.
(3) Termites can destroy structures, attached and not attached.
The reports are generated the same day, which in the fast moving world of real estate, is a Blessing for our Buyers and Sellers of real estate.
When it comes to the inspection itself, I have seen some inspectors I have had to let go. An example that comes to mind is one where the inspector did not go into the attic. I noticed and called him on it later. He even had what he found in the Attic in the report, but I was sure, as was my seller and the buyer’s agent, he did not open the attic access portal. (while I am not a termite inspector, the attic should be accessed to search for termites)!
Frank does not miss a beat. He is inside and outside of the home, hot, cold or wet. He is using his trained eye, knowledge and experience to look for what could become a problem and what is currently a problem.
Besides providing the best Termite inspection services and remediation in real estate, he also keeps homes pest free.
He provides pest control services with our Santa Clarita real estate and can service your’s too.
