Termites and mold

What happens when it comes time to sell your house and you realize that you may have unseen problems such as termites, mold, or other organisms? Any of these can seriously damage your home — and worse, you may not be aware of it until you’re ready to sell.

What happens then? Depending on where you live, you may be required to have your home inspected. In most cases, if an infestation is found, the seller must pay for the inspection. If no problem is found, the buyer pays. Unfortunately, many homeowners wait until they have an offer from a buyer before they have the property inspected, and by that time, it may be too late because the damage has been done. At that point, your options are limited: fix the damage, or pull your home from the market until you can take care of the problems yourself. But termite damage and mold that’s already spread throughout the house are not inexpensive to repair.

You do have another option, however. If you need to sell your home and don’t want the expense involved in these repairs — or you need to sell quickly — we’ll buy your house, regardless of the condition it’s in. At Backer Homes, we offer fair, fast service and a non-binding cash offer. Simply complete our online form here. We’ll take care of what’s bugging you by removing the infestation and making all repairs before we put the property back on the market. Your problem? Solved.
