Your home inspector will need to access areas that are probably not used very often or are used for storage, such as the attic space and basement. Make sure these areas have a clear path and are free of clutter.
Although this may not seem like a big deal, light bulbs that no longer work and carbon monoxide detectors that need new batteries are among the small details that could actually alter a home inspection report. Check these before the home inspector arrives.
For many of us, our pets are most beloved members of the family, however, they very often prevent the home inspector from performing a thorough inspection. On the day of inspection, it is best if pets are kept away from the home or are in a safe and secure area.
While its very likely you have a long list of repair work to do on the property in order to sell it, if possible, try to have these done before the inspection. Also, any trees or shrubs close to the house should be trimmed beforehand.
Yes, as home inspectors, we want you to get the best out of your home inspection, following these suggestions will help ensure this is the case.
