‘I do not need to waste money on pest inspection, as the property that I am getting is at great location’. ‘I am getting a good deal, I must grab it immediately & must not waste time in any inspection or pest management, as I can handle it later, if there is any’. ‘I will myself manage pest problem on the own if it comes, there isn’t any need to spend the resources on it’; or etc. Have you said any of such statement or heard saying someone, who is investing in a new property?
If yes, then you need to read this blog, as it is specially for you. Without much ado, we’ll give you three reasons, for why you shouldn’t have said such statements or should have stopped others to have such perspective.
3 Answers to the question are:
• Would you like to pay a good amount for a house, the structure of which is completely damaged? Your negligence can make you pay for a property which looks perfect from the outside but would soon fall off due to the damaged structure. Termites are silent killers, so you will not see them from above but would get to know about their presence only once inspected carefully. therefore, it is important to find the sign of pest or termite infestation before you sign the deal for any property buying.
• The second reason is to get the peace of mind. Somewhere in the mind, there is always a doubt of the property being infected by the pests or termites. No doubt if there is a presence of pest in a property, then these might affect the peace of mind. There are not only wealth risks, but also health risks associated with the pests, termites, or rodents.
• It can change your view point. If you reason for making investment in the property is just the lucrative deal, then the pests would alter your viewpoint. It is far better to invest some more money on a pest-free property than investing in a property that is attacked by the pests.
You must ensure that you make the investment in the property only when it is properly inspected for pests or termites. For your own satisfaction, you can also consult some pest control agencies for whether the property you are interested in is free from pests or not.
Always remember that it is far better to stay cautious then to regret later. Property buying is not a small decision, so you should be satisfied from every aspect.
