home inspectionOne of the things that you’re going to want to do before you put your house up on the market is to get a professional home inspection. This will give you an idea of what all is wrong with the house so that you can invest in repairs or, at the very least, adjust the price you’re asking for accordingly.

Even if you don’t do an inspection, the buyer will do one before signing on the dotted line. If they find major problems with your house, the sale could fall through, which is why you have an inspection done before you even list the house. The following are a few tips to keep in mind when it comes to home inspections:

  • Clean the house – It’s not just that you want to leave a good impression on the inspector, it’s also that you’ll want to make sure that they can safely get to everything they need to inspect without tripping over clutter. For example, make sure that they can easily reach your furnace or take a look in your basement.
  • Collect your paperwork – You’ll need to show the inspector documentation of all maintenance and repairs you’ve done on the house.
  • Make sure utilities are connected – The inspector will need to test your appliances and HVAC system, so make sure the gas and electricity are on.
  • Replace dead batteries – The inspector will check all of the smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in the house. Make sure that you change out dead batteries so help keep the inspection from slowing down.
  • Be present – Show up at the scheduled inspection time and follow the inspector so that you can ask questions and get more thorough explanations about potential issues.
