Pest Control for Real Estate Agents


Selling a house is all about esthetics, comfort, convenience, and even view. It is a given to make sure the kitchen is clean, and the house smells inviting when staging. And although much of the focus when selling a house is on the floors (carpet, hardwood, ceramic tile), and the kitchen and bathroom updates, research indicates that only 15 percent of prospective buyers take a “quick glance” at those things. However, 80 percent look into storage spaces such as under the stairs, closets, and more.  Where are we going with this? What if they opened a closet door to find a pile of dead flies, or worse, termite wings? What if they just happened to see that stray carpenter ant on a windowsill or red ants in your cupboards? Do you think you will nail that sale? NOT. So, for all of you real-estate agents out there…two words: pest control.


When you’re staging a house for sale what is first and foremost are the looks of the kitchen and bathroom, the room size, the neighborhood, the floors, a fresh coat of paint on the ceilings and walls. Then there are the details such as clean mirrors, ceiling fans, and light fixtures; removing dust from knick-knacks and pictures; removing cobwebs from corners and ceilings; placing fresh flowers or fruit in the kitchen, clean towels and new soap in the bathrooms, and fresh linen on the beds. But, what about pest control?
