Interested in purchasing a new home?
Hunting for a new home is an exciting process and when you finally find a home that makes sense for you and your life, you want to make sure you’re making the right decision.

Why you want an inspection
Buying a home is one of the largest investments a person will make in their lifetime. You do not want any hesitation when taking out that mortgage or cutting that big check. When making this large purchase, you want to be certain that you know all of the potential issues that may be happening within your new home that may not be apparent from the simple walk-throughs you take. That is why you will want to schedule a real estate inspection with Mitchell Services, so we can notify you of any wood destroying insects like termites and carpenter ants that could be invading and damaging the home. If we do find signs of wood destroying insects, that may be an opportunity for you to negotiate the price down or alert you that this home may not be for you.
Why you need an inspection
Not many people can pay for a home outright and most people need a lender to provide mortgage financing. In order to get a loan approved for your new home, your lender will most likely require you to have a Wood Destroying Insects (WDI) inspection and have an NPMA 33 form filled out within 30 days of the closing date. They don’t want to lend you money for a home that’s being eaten from the inside out.
