Pest inspections are an important part of the process for the first time home buyer. Steve Filkins with Filk Pest Control joins me Amerifirst Home Mortgage specialist Jeremy Drobeck to take a look at the pest inspection process. We look specifically at wood destroying insects like carpenter ants and termites, and how they destroy homes. I always highly recommend having a pest inspection done as part of the home buying process it can save you a ton of money. For example, the home in this video was a rental property I was personally purchasing. I had Filk Pest Control do a pest inspection on the home prior to me purchasing it. Sure enough they found both carpenter Ants and Termites at a cost of well over $1,000 having not done the inspection could have cost me big time. Instead I was able to renegotiate the price and obtained a HUGE price reduction. The $50 pest inspection save me thousands of dollars!
One of the biggest myths out there is that you need a bunch of money to buy a house. That’s simply not true. There are a number of No and Low down payment options for home buyers. On top of that you don’t have to be a first time home buyer to access many of those programs. During our next lunch and learn we will cover all the different options out there for buyers looking to minimize their down payment. Over the last couple years its been harder to get a lot of these types of offers accepted. However, with the market going back to a much more “normal” state it’s not nearly as hard as it was just a few short months ago. This is the perfect time for Realtors to reconnect with their past customers and get back out there looking. Come check out this lunch and learn and get a refresh course on low down payment options for buyers!
