Are You Selling Your House?
If you’re selling a home here are 16 tips that will make the inspection a more efficient and positive experience:
- Make sure that the utilities are on; the electricity, water, and gas.
- Make sure that any gas pilot light is lit (fireplace, furnace, water heater, etc.). Inspectors don’t light pilot lights, they report the appliance as being inoperable at the time of inspection.
- Remove any wood, furniture, debris and stored items away from the foundation perimeter.
- Trim overgrown trees, bushes, and vines away from there house sides and roof. for observation and inspection access.
- Move any furniture and any stored items away from the crawl-space access, attic access, electric service panel cabinet, HVAC system access, water heater access, and exterior door access’.
- Remove any items which may restrict movement and inspection access in the crawl-space, attic, patio area, or garage.
- Remove any locks which may be on gates, electric service panel cabinets, HVAC service disconnects, storage closets, water heater closets, attic access, garage car entry doors, or lawn sprinkler control timers.
- Make sure that automobiles or other vehicles aren’t blocking the attic access or the overhead door operation.
- Know that the inspector is going to operate almost everything in the house; the furnace, cooling system, dishwasher, lawn sprinkler system, etc.
- Replace any burned out light bulbs.
- Test the smoke alarms, replace the batteries.
- Replace the HVAC systems’ air filter(s).
- Repair or replace damaged or missing items such as; rain gutters, down spouts, knobs, hinges, latches and glass.
- The swimming pool equipment should be operating when the inspector arrives. This includes any pool sweeping and heating equipment.
- You may choose to provide recipes or copies of receipts for recent repairs made to the house (ask your agent about this).
- Consider lodging for your pet during the inspection. Your pet doesn’t know that you are making plans for a new home, only that its home is being invaded and its owners routine is changing. Selling a home is very stressful on a pet, sometimes bites can occur. A home inspector is not going to chase an escaped pet.
