Understanding WDO Inspections

A Wood Destroying Organism report (WDO) inspection is a mandated inspection required when looking to purchase or sell a home or commercial space in the Bay Area. Standard home inspectors do not cover this facet of property inspections. As such, a licensed and trained professionals, such as MightyMite Termite, must be called in to get the job done right.

Key Factors of WDO Inspections

WDO inspections are highly intricate procedures. During a WDO inspection, our experts assess various high-risk areas of the structure and review several key factors, including:

Who Covers the Cost of WDO Reports?

A WDO inspection is a negotiable component in a real estate transaction. WDO inspections are often required to obtain a mortgage, leading buyers to request and pay for the cost of service. Other times, WDO inspections are implemented in the contract contingency, meaning they are requested by the buyer and paid for by the seller.

The Cost of WDO Inspections

The cost of WDO inspections varies depending on the area you reside in and the company you choose. However, it’s imperative to avoid compromising quality for a lower price, as an insufficient inspection can lead to far greater expenditure due to overlooked WDO. On average, you can expect to pay around $300 and up.
