Buying a Home with Termite Damage in Lubbock TX
So you’ve found your dream home, but you saw signs of termite damage during the open house. What can you do? Should you skip the listing entirety? Does termite damage render a home uninhabitable for the rest of time?
It sounds unnerving, but it’s generally considered safe to buy a home that has had an infestation of termites. More than that, it’s fairly difficult to avoid since homes in Texas that have not been properly treated for termites have a 70% chance of facing an infestation within a decade. That makes it fairly normal. Still, if buying a home with termite damage, you should still take precautions and arrange for a WDI report.
