A home inspection is a standard part of a home buying process. Depending on the results of the inspection, a buyer may seal the deal or back out. In today’s post, the local contractor with the best gutter cover reviews, ABC Seamless Siding, shares a quick guide on how to prepare your home for a home inspection.

What Is a Home Inspection For?

A home inspection is usually conducted by a home inspector between the buyer signing a purchase agreement and the final closing date. During the inspection, the property is examined top to bottom, focusing on key components like the roof, foundations, and utilities like plumbing and electricity. As a seller, you’ll want your home inspection as uneventful as possible, as a buyer could back out of the sale or want to negotiate a lower price if the inspector finds issues with the house.

How to Prepare Your Home for an Inspection

There are benefits to preparing your home once you have decided to sell your house: you can pace your clean-up tasks over days or weeks and you’ll have enough time to have repairs done. The following are some of the things you can do to prepare your home.

Make sure everything works indoors — Go through every room in the house and make sure that the light switches, electrical outlets, and plumbing are all working. All doors and windows should open and close easily. Test the thermostat and make sure dampers in the air vents are also working.

Clean up — You’ll want to make your home as appealing as possible. Vacuum the carpet, wash the windows, and declutter. Another benefit of cleaning up is packing up when you eventually move out will be easier: you’d already have packed up things you don’t use every day and thrown out or sold things you don’t need.

Clean the outdoors too — You should also take the time to clean your home’s exterior: clean the leaves and debris from the gutters and the roof, perform repairs as needed, and clean the yard. You’ll also want to wash the siding and outdoor deck and paint or apply waterproofing to them if needed.
