  • How To Get Ready For A Property Inspection

    If you are planning on putting your house on the market to be sold, then know that it is mandatory for you to first go through a complete property inspections in mid north coast before actually letting the buyer conduct their part of the inspection. A complete property inspection is really important as it allows you to be safe from any future problems as it is the last thing that a seller needs which is finding something broken or damaged just because you weren’t ready for it in the first place. Let’s find out how you should prepare yourself before a property inspector arrives at your place. 

    1. Cleaning
    Even though it sound pretty easy, but one should look from the eyes of a property inspector that everything in the house should be properly cleaned. Home inspectors are basically those people who look at your house from a third person’s perspective, hence, they would carefully go through everything in a detailed manner. Make sure you give them a good impression by cleaning literally everything and don’t think that they would see past stuff. 
    1. Be Prepared forEverything on Time 
    If you have other chores to do, make sure they are all done before the inspection or after because time management is something property inspectors are really good at? In fact, it is recommended to leave everything to be done after the inspector has left as you don’t want to risk anything. Also, it is pretty common to begin the inspection from the exterior part of the house than the interior so make sure you aren’t surprised when they want to check the backyard. 
    1. Keep Work Space around the Water Heaters and Furnace
    Since it is the job of the inspector to ensure everything works safely in the right manner, it is your job to keep some space by removing furniture, book cases, boxes or anything that is on the way from furnace and water heaters as they require space to have them properly inspected. The inspector might not move anything on their own which is another alarming sign for the seller because if he doesn’t check the problematic areas on their own, they would guide the buyer to have them checked themselves. To be on the safe side, make sure you are providing with everything yourself. 
    1. Garage and Attic Access
    The inspector will make sure that he checks each and every corner of your house, whether it is the basement, the garage, backyard or the attic so providing him access to all of these areas is a must. But before the inspector arrives, you should check whether there is any water issue in the basement or not or any such issue which could become a problem for you during the inspection.  property-inspections
