If the buyer is paying for the pest inspection their home inspector will do it with the home inspection for a discounted price. Make sure to ask the inspection if they are certified for pest inspections as FHA and VA will require the report. ... more

The cost can vary depending on who you call. B&B Pest Control charges $75 and they do a great job. I would use them on my personal house. The number is 704-694-6207.

If there is an right-of-way, easement or fee simple ownership it should be recorded in the Register of Deeds office in the county of record. One can obtain this answer by asking the Register of Deeds office, real estate attornery or competent real estate agent. Hope this helps!

Brokers do charge a percentage of the sale price or set a minimun to be paid at the closing table. We do more or should do more than just take a few pictures and enter it into the MLS system.

Hi Karconner,

There are some really good appraisers in Stanly County and I will be glad to give you a few referrals if you would like to give me a call. Finding comps for a log home will be difficult, but there are several options that they can go over with you. I would recommend you discuss hiring and appraiser with your lender to make sue that they will be able to use it for their use in approving the loan.
