Real Estate Assessment, Environmental Assessment, understanding potential pest problems when buying a home

The neighbors said she called a well known pest control company once a week to get rid of the spiders. Mice were also a problem. There were scorpions as well. She finally moved away. She probably got out just in time to avoid the mosquito infestations brought on by the heavy spring and early summer rains. All the other lawns in the neighborhood are infested with gophers, moles, and a wide variety of insects and weeds.

 A meager attempt to install a poorly planned lawn was hastily put into motion, the touch up work done, a real estate sign placed in the yard, and the home promptly placed back on the market, awaiting the next victim.

This is a true story!

Let me give you an idea of the surroundings: The home faced South, to the street and other homes, and the North side was a once bulldozed, overgrown 4 or 5 acre stretch of swampy weedy, brushy, rodent infested, well, you get the picture. It would have been better had the dozer work stopped at the edge of the new home. One neighbor describes the scene as looking like something out of the Tim Burton film "The Nightmare Before Christmas!"

The home was inspected for lead paint, for termites, for asbestos, all the little areas of concern that a potential home buyer needs to consider. Well, almost all.

Termite inspection, and standard environmental inspection is not enough! To take a really good look, to get a real assessment  of real estate, requires a look at a lot more! The wider environment of the home and it's location should be taken into account.

If you want to learn to understand a homes potential pest problems before you sign on the dotted line, you have come to the right place. This site will give you the tools you need to avoid buying a home in a pest infested location, and will help you understand the best ways of dealing with the problems if you already have.
