For many Americans, purchasing a home is a major life decision and milestone. Choosing the right home for you and your loved ones can be very difficult because several factors need to be taken into consideration: location, accessibility, structure, price, and more. Moreover, it is rare to find a house that matches exactly what comes to your mind when you imagine your dream home. Most of the time, people need to compromise between their ideal scenario and a few necessary improvements. It is important to make reasonable estimates about the cost of repairs and renovations, and to then factor these into your home purchasing decision. Most people underestimate the amount of time and money that goes into it.
Home ownership and maintenance can be overwhelming. Jack and Vanessa Porter are a married couple with two young children. Last year, the Porters purchased a beautiful home in California that was nearly exactly like what they had envisioned their dream house to be. All seemed well until they realized that they did not inspect the house thoroughly enough before purchasing it.
“We did initially notice that the doors were creaky when opening and closing them, but we didn’t think too much of that. We planned on replacing them anyway—once we had bought the house and moved in. Unfortunately, we kept procrastinating on that plan,” says Vanessa.
When he finally got around to repairing the door, Jack noticed that the wood seemed to have a higher than normal moisture content. As it turns out, the interior of the wooden door had been consumed by termites. “As soon as I saw the mud tubes and discarded wings, I knew we were in trouble,” said Jack.
Termites feed on wood, chewing through wood, walls, floors, and paper. The physical and financial damage they cause to homeowners every year is substantial. Termites have become so notorious across the country that the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) reports an increase of 48 percent in online conversations on the subject in the last year.
As such, the NPMA recommends that homeowners hire a professional to conduct a termite inspection at least once per year.
