Well the week has started off pretty good! Looks like the economy may be getting a little better. I can tell you that last year A.N.T.T.S = A North Texas Termite Specialist was doing about twice as many real estate termite inspections (WDI VA & FHA Inspections) as we are now. It seems as though with the mortgage companies being so tough on lending now that nobody without perfect credit can by a home. When people buy a home most mortgage companies still require a WDI Termite report. We always recommend one even if the home is only 1-2 years old. I cannot begin to tell you how many times we find conducive conditions on new homes like form boards left in place, wood to ground contact etc. These conditions are a termite and pest problem waiting to happen. With a good inspection we educate the buyer about conducive conditions and how to inspect their own home as they are doing their landscaping and yard work. Another good thing about getting a termite inspection when purchasing a new home is that when we find active termites or carpenter ants it’s on the seller to take care of the problem before closing. A.N.T.T.S has come up with a great plan that works good for both the seller and buyer! With the great new termiticides we have around now like Termidor www.termidor.com we can do a spot treatment and warranty the whole home for a very reasonable price. This way the seller has the problem taken care of for the buyer and the mortgage company will lend the money for the sale. So if you are buying a new or used home around the Dallas or Fort Worth area and need a good inspection from a company with over 25 years experience and a owner who is the author of a Termite Visual Training Aid that sells nationwide to pest control companies to learn about doing a real estate termite inspection than you may want to call 817-366-3130 A.N.T.T.S
