Pest Control for Home Sellers
If you’re on the market to sell your house, take some steps to make sure that it is pest-free before showing it or making any type of negotiations with potential buyers. Showing proof of your dedication to your home will help potential buyers see that your home is well taken care of, making the selling experience go smoother and the value of your house be higher.
Sometimes houses may remain on the market for weeks or months. Even if you have already moved out taking preventative steps to making sure there are no pests in your home is crucial. In your absence, new pests may have moved into your house without you knowing. It is imperative that every couple of months you have your home regularly inspected for arising issues. Keeping the exterior and your yard maintained may be a given, but it will also help eliminate pests as well. If you have an open house event, try and keep a screen door closed keeping all critters out while maintaining a welcoming environment. It is your responsibility as the seller to keep pests under control or else you could be liable for any pest control costs.
