A home inspection is typically conducted after a buyer signs a purchase agreement and before the final closing date. Most homebuyers opt to make the closing contingent based on the results of the home inspection. This means that they can cancel the sale in the event the inspector finds something that doesn’t satisfy their requirements and for which the seller is unwilling to repair or lower the purchase price.

That said, you should work on preparing your home for the pre-sale inspection so that the deal is less likely to fall through, and you won’t have to worry about the cost and burden of repairs. 

Ensure Open Access to Areas That Need to Be Inspected

The home inspector should have easy access throughout your property. This will help make the process go more smoothly and quickly. Furthermore, if the inspector can’t access an area, the person won’t be able to inspect it, and this could potentially be a red flag for the buyer.

Clean and Repair Your Gutters

Make sure you don’t overlook your gutters. They should be clean and well-maintained. A gutter system in bad shape is often a cause for concern since it carries risks of water damage and even foundation damage. One effective way of keeping your gutters in good condition is by installing rain gutter covers, which could prevent leaves, debris and dirt from getting into the gutters.

Clean Up

Cleanliness does not necessarily have any bearing during a home inspection. However, a clean home can help highlight its features and make the property look more enticing. It also helps create a good impression because it shows that the property is properly maintained.

Make Sure Everything Works Indoors

A home inspection is essentially designed to confirm that the entire property, including all of its systems and major mechanicals, is in good condition. That said, some of the areas that you should pay special attention to are the HVAC system, plumbing and all electrical outlets and light switches. Ensure that all doors and windows are functioning properly, and there are no cracks in your walls or by your foundation or stains on your ceilings.
