How to prepare for a home inspection as a seller

Preparing your home for a home inspection can be a daunting task, but it's important to take the necessary steps to ensure that your home is in top condition before the inspector arrives. Here are a few tips to help you prepare your home for a home inspection.

  1. Clean and declutter: A clean and clutter-free home will make it easier for the inspector to access all areas of your home. Take the time to declutter, dust, and clean your home before the inspection.

  2. Make repairs: Take the time to address any repairs that need to be made, such as leaky faucets, broken windows, or damaged walls. These repairs will not only make your home look better, but they will also help to prevent potential issues from becoming major problems.

  3. Make sure all appliances are in working order: Make sure all appliances in your home are in working order before the inspection. This includes the furnace, air conditioner, and any other appliances that will be included in the inspection.

  4. Remove any obstacles: Make sure to remove any obstacles that may prevent the inspector from accessing all areas of your home. This includes moving furniture and other items out of the way, and making sure that all doors and windows can be easily opened.

  5. Prepare outdoor areas: Make sure to prepare outdoor areas, such as decks, patios, and porches, for inspection as well. Remove any debris, and make sure that these areas are safe and accessible.

  6. Provide access to all areas of the home: Make sure that the inspector has access to all areas of your home, including the attic, crawl space, and any outbuildings.

By following these tips and making sure that your home is in top condition before the inspection, you can help to ensure that the inspection goes smoothly, and that any potential issues are identified and addressed in a timely manner.
