VIDEO: Home Sellers Guide to Preparing For the Home Inspection


So you've accepted an offer on your home. What's next?
In most cases it’s waiting for the buyers to meet the conditions of their offer, one of which is likely a home inspection. This should be a qualified, licensed and insured inspector who will inspect the components of your home and report the general condition, as well as any defects, to the buyer.
There are a few things you can do to make sure the inspection goes assmoothly as possible, and this includes anything that will make the inspector’s job easier.
Start with a thorough cleaning of your house, provide a safe environment, access to all windows and doors, and replace any bulbs that are out. Clear the perimeter of your home from things like debris and trash cans, and clear the gutters.
Make sure that there is unobstructed access to things like the electrical panel, furnace, water heater, water main line, sump pump and the attic hatch.
On the day of the inspection, confirm with your realtor when you can return home so you don’t interrupt the buyer’s walk-through (plan to be away from home a minimum of a few hours).
And don’t forget to take your pets with you.
