Selling A Home Infected With Termites
To sell a home you need to have a willing buyer. As required by the property market before you sell your home you need to have an inspection done and an inspection report produced. The worst fear of any home seller is the inspection report to indicate major issues that may impact the planned sale. One of the major fears of any home owner is to have their home infested by termite. Termite causes major damages to homes and they may cost a lot of money to destroy the termite depending on when they were discovered. The home owner has a decision to make when selling the home after noticing the termite invasion in his home. A termite damaged house can be sold as it is or after treatment depending on the owner preference. Each of the decision the home owner makes will have an impact on the profit or cash get from the house.
