Home Seller Preparation For a Home Inspection

Home Seller Preparation For a Home Inspection

  1. A clean and orderly home also gives the impression of a well-maintained home. It is recommended to have the HVAC serviced and cleaned before the inspection.
  2. Some maintenance items your may want to check off the list include re-caulking around bathtubs and sinks, unclogging drains, replacing old and torn window screens, and adding new insulation in the attic if necessary.
  3. You’ll also want to be sure to examines your house for water damage and leaks. Look for leaks under sinks, around faucets, bathtubs, showers, toilets, dishwashers and refrigerators.
  4. And don’t forget about the exterior of the house. Clean out gutters, trim away any tree branches and sweep debris off the roof.
  5. Having a pre-listing inspection can lead to a smoother transaction and will likely identify issues the buyer’s inspector would uncover.
  6. If the house is vacant, make sure the utilities are on, and be sure there is clear access to attics, crawlspaces, heating systems and garages.
