When purchasing a home, termites or other wood-destroying insects such as carpenter ants, woodborers or powder post beetles, can ruin a deal in no time. Depending on your mortgage lender, a termite and wood-destroying insect inspection may be required. This report will always be required in VA, FHA and HUD loan types.
Termites lead to roughly $5 billion in damages every year, so whether it is required or not, responsible homeowners opt to have this type of inspection to save time and money later on. The cost of these reports varies from pest companies but at Snowball we have an always low cost of $85! In addition to a thorough inspection it will include all the paperwork you are going to need to close on your home loan. We realize that these tend to be something customers need in a time crunch and we always try to accommodate as quickly and efficiently as possible!
