Is your house up for sale? Are you concerned about what a home inspection may show up?
Then you need to check out these great tips for surviving a home inspection on your property:
1. Set your expectations in advance
It’s the inspector’s job to find things wrong. If your home is more than a few years old, there will be items wrong with your home. It’s no big deal!
2. Preventative Maintenance
Perform all of your normal maintenance before you list your home, if you haven’t already. Change air filters, clean vents, check for wood rot and fix doors that don’t latch properly. Walk the entire interior and exterior and be critical.
3. Have your home pre-inspected
It may seem like double the work, but having it pre-inspected and repairing those items in advance will prevent anything of concern showing up on the buyer’s inspection report and may save a lot of heartache down the road.
4. Hire it out
Once you have the needed list of repairs agreed upon, hire a handyman or contractor to do the repairs.
