An inspection for Wood Destroying Organisms (WDO) aims to detect not just destructive insects (termites, powder post beetles, etc.), but also any wood decay fungi in the home. Costs for a WDO inspection range from $150 – $400+, depending on size of the home/type of inspection.
*Note that some home inspectors may also offer a WDO inspection with their services, so be sure to confirm what's included and what's not.

Getting pre-approved for a home loan means you’ll know exactly how much house you can afford. You’ll also be ready to move quickly and make an offer on a house you like, and a pre-approved buyer is often more attractive to home sellers.
