Cingo for Real Estate

Helping You Help Your Clients

I want pricing for a specific pest

Home Sweet Home

You've heard it before, “A man’s home is his castle.” A house is probably the largest purchase we'll ever make. Whether you are a real estate professional helping your client find the perfect house or home buyer turning a dream into a reality, Cingo can help make pest protection easy.

Home Inspections

A home inspection allows buyers to identify areas that may need to be addressed so purchase decisions can be made with confidence. Typical home inspections include assessment of the heating and air conditioning systems, plumbing and electrical systems, roof, attic and insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors as well as the foundation, basement and structural components. Cingo home inspections are $400 and include a comprehensive pest inspection. An official termite clearance letter can be provided if needed, and there is a $25 administrative fee. Cingo offers home inspections in Warner Robins, Dublin, Valdosta, Douglas and Waycross.

Pest Inspections and Termite Letters

Beyond the traditional home inspection, it's important to assess the home for signs of pest activity and conditions that indicate future problems. Banks, mortgage companies and other lenders often require a termite clearance letter that indicates the structure has been inspected by a licensed pest professional. In Georgia, these are called Wood Infestation Inspection Reports (WIRs) and in South Carolina they are known as CL-100s. Cingo has partnered with the real estate industry for more than 40 years. We can meet you onsite quickly to keep your closing on track. A comprehensive pest inspection is $50, and results will be delivered within 48 hours. If a WIR or CL-100 is needed for closing, it can be issued for $25.

What to Expect from Cingo

Real estate professionals are busy. You work out of your car and sometimes skip lunch. We get it. One of Cingo’s core values is, “Happy people making people happy.” Being easy to work with makes people happy. For that reason, we've tried to make the process simple.

1. Let us know you need an inspection. To get started, we just need some basic information about the buyer and property address. Additional details can be provided later.

2. Our Customer Care team will contact you. Cingo will contact the buyer (or agent if preferred) to schedule the inspection. The customer care team is available weekdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

3. Cingo will perform the inspection. Home inspections take approximately 3 hours and Pest Inspections about 1 hour. If possible, we prefer the buyer to be present at some point during the inspection.

4. Review inspection results. Results and recommendations are delivered electronically within 48 hours and usually the next day.
