There is probably some kind of
small, crawly creature that makes its home in yours. Whether they are ants,
fleas, roaches, termites, or spiders, it is a good idea to get rid of them before you put your house on the market. If home remedies like
ionized boric acid don't work, paying an exterminator will be money
Most standard purchase agreements require that a
property be inspected before the closing and treated for termite infestation, if
necessary. It is a good idea to check for insect problems as soon as you sign a
listing agreement, so that they don't become an issue of contention with the buyer.
Some insects may not physically damage the house, but may reduce its chances of
selling for top dollar. Constantly having to push back spider webs while viewing
the house or seeing roachs could seriously affect a
prospective buyer's ability to fully appreciate your house.
