Quick question: when was the last time you checked out your home’s crawl space?
Termites can cause significant property damage—which can be very costly to repair (and generally isn’t covered by homeowners insurance). If you are buying a property, it’s important that you get a termite inspection performed before the closing. And in fact most banks or lenders will require this as part of the loan approval process. While this may seem like a hassle, it’s definitely a worthwhile investment that can save you a lot of money and aggravation later.
