If you’ve had your home on the market, you have probably already done quite a bit of work to get your home ready to sell. And if you have a buyer ready to purchase your home, you’re on the home stretch! Still, it’s important to keep your eye on the prize through the home inspection process with AccuSpect Inspections. We’ve put together a few tips to keep in mind to prep your home for the home inspection.
1. Make sure smoke alarms are in working order.
This is a very simple thing you can do to expedite the home inspection and remediation process. Haul out a ladder or stepstool, and test all the smoke alarms in your house to make sure they work. Now might be a great time to replace their batteries, especially if it’s been a while since you’ve done that.
2. Remove clutter from the floor.
Put shoes away, pick up all your kids’ Legos, etc. Basically, keep your floors as clear as possible. The goal is to give the home inspection a clear line of sight throughout your Detroit area home.
3. Clear outdoor debris and brush away from buildings.
Get rid of any trash and cut away bushes that might impede the inspection of your home’s exterior. You want the home inspector to be able to visually inspect the foundation, utilities connections, and structural soundness of your home.
4. Replace burned-out light bulbs.
Again, this is a simple way of removing any questions about your home’s electrical system. If light bulbs are burned out, concerns might be raised about the light fixtures or the wiring.
5. Choose a reliable home inspector.
Knowledge is power, and one of the times in life when you should be well-informed is when you’re buying a home. You can trust the certified experts at AccuSpect Inspections to discover the honest truth about a home you’re considering buying, selling, or investing in.
