Tips for Preparing for a Home Inspection

Clean and Declutter

Make sure all areas of your home, including basements and attics, are easy to get to. Clear out any clutter and clean surfaces so the inspector can move around freely and see everything clearly.

Provide Access to Key Systems

Make sure the inspector can easily get to important systems like the furnace, water heater, the attic access and electrical panel. Unlock those gates and doors to these spots.

Check Light Bulbs and Smoke Detectors

Swap out any burnt-out light bulbs and test smoke detectors, too, to ensure they're working properly. This will not just save time but also avoid unnecessary worries during the inspection.

Repair Minor Issues

Take care of any small fixes you know about ahead of time, like leaky faucets, loose doorknobs, and other minor maintenance tasks.

Gather Documentation

If you have records of past repairs, maintenance, or improvements, have them ready for the inspector so you can easily provide them context for your home's condition.
