Are you planning on selling your Orange County home?
If so, one of the most important parts of the home sales process is to be prepared for the home inspection because, it’s the first step to selling your home.
In today’s post we will cover how you can prepare your home for the inspection and what you can expect from this process.
Do This BEFORE Your Home Inspection
One of the biggest mistakes which people make before their home inspections is not taking the time to properly prepare their homes for inspection.
Make sure you prepare your home for inspection by doing the following:
- Fix minor maintenance problems.
- Resolve plumbing issues.
- Verify all smoke detector batteries work.
- Secure railings.
- Replace broken glass from windows.
- Remove pets from property and clean up after them.
Think like A Home Inspector
Although you may think your home is in great condition and should easily ace the home inspection you must make sure to think like a home inspector and check everything in your home including:
- Garage Doors
- Attic spaces
Your home inspector will be opening every door, accessing every crawl space and thoroughly inspecting all areas of your home so it’s important to also leave that individual a note if you feel there is an access issue with one or more areas of your home.
For detached storage sheds or out-buildings you should also have the keys for those structures available during the home inspection so your home inspector can easily inspect them if they are part of the home sale.
