Be Ready For Your Home Inspection
So you’ve had your house up for sale for quite some time now, when finally, you find an interested buyer. You’ve almost sealed the deal on the sale but there is one more hurdle you have to face. The dreaded home inspection. Many times, the entire deal is often riding on the home inspection, as many buyers may back out if the home inspection results less than desirable. This can make it a pretty tense moment when it is time to have your house inspected. Fortunately, there are things you can do to ensure that your home receives a glowing inspection report.
Clear The Way
The first thing you should do when preparing for a home inspection is to increase the accessibility of various areas of your property. This means you must make sure there are no obstructions to doorways or blocked off portions of your home or property.
The reason for doing this is because if an inspector cannot get to an area, they may not inspect it or it may give off the impression that you are less than transparent with your home. The best thing to do is to make sure all areas of your home are readily accessible and require little to noweffort to reach.
Make Necessary Repairs
When preparing for an inspection, you should inspect your house first beforehand. Walk around your property and take note of any problems you see such as broken doors, holes in walls, water damage, even blown light bulbs can throw off an inspector so make sure everything is in order before they arrive.
It may be smart to have your house evaluated for termites and other issues that might go unnoticed before the inspection as well. Checking your toilets, sinks, kitchen appliances, and air conditioners beforehand is also something that will help the overall impression of your home.
Clean Your Home And Be Prepared
Finally, after you’ve inspected your house thoroughly yourself, it is time to give your home a good cleaning. It is extremely important to clean your house very thoroughly before the inspector arrives as you want to present your home in its best light. Make sure all your homes systems are on in order for the inspection to go as smooth as possible.
Don’t Be Nervous, Knowledge Is Power
Remember, be confident, polite, and relax because most buyers are just looking to make sure there are no major problems with the house that will cause them unexpected costs. Home inspections are intended to protect the seller and the buyer, providing clear understanding of what is offered for sell so that everyone is on the same page.
