Wood Destroying Insects

According to National Pest Management Association termites cause $5 billion dollars in property damage each year. In New York State subterranean termites are most abundant in the southern counties adjacent to the Hudson River and on Long Island.

Although the subterranean termite is the most common and well known type of wood destroying insect (WDI) there is also the powderpost beetle, old house borer, black carpenter ant and the carpenter bee which your inspector will also look for.

Our inspectors are certified and licensed by New York State to perfom WDI inspections. You will receive a completed NPMA-33 report which is required by some banks and mortage lenders.

Water quality test

Our inspectors can perform a water quality test on the home’s drinking water. We can run a basic 8 profile test (coliform, conductivity, total dissolved solids, pH, hardness, lead, copper and iron) or any of these tests individually.

Results are received in approximately 5 – 6 business days (faster results can be received with an additional fee to the base cost). Because of the length of time to receive the results, buyers can have stipulations written into the contract pending water quality results.

Seller Certified Home Program (Pre-Listing Inspections)

Listing inspections are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. A great many sales are cancelled due to the buyer’s shock at the “functional condition” of the home. It may look great, but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner’s knowledge.

Having the home inspected prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue found in the Inspection Report. Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can’t make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often times produce a higher net sales price for the owner.

Investor Property Inspections

Investor property inspections are performed prior to purchase as well as periodically during ownership. Pre-purchase inspections are performed to identify defects prior to taking ownership to negotiate repairs or price adjustments which reflect the condition of the property.

Periodic inspections for properties currently in your portfolio would ensure the identification of needed repairs following say a long term tenant’s departure. Long-term tenants sometimes neglect to mention repairs and/or abuse the property during their tenancy. Identifying those problems early is the key to profitable ownership.
