There’s always a relief when you finally find someone to purchase your home, especially if it has been listed for a long time. Now the dreaded home inspection comes in.
Home inspections can either break or seal the deal for you, and no one wants to fail an inspection. Fortunately, there are tricks and tips to pass a home inspection.
Here are a few of them.
- Assess your HVAC system
One of the most notable selling points of a home is an efficient HVAC unit. The home buyer expects a reliable working HVAC system.
Make sure to show your utility bills, even though the inspector will still have to do his job.
- Provide documentation for maintenance and repairs done
To pass an inspection, you want your potential buyer to take note of all the expensive projects you’ve done, such as:
- Upgrading the electric system
- Roof replacement/repair etc.
So, make sure to present the receipts of the repairs done.
- Turn utilities on
The electricity, water, and gas should be on during an inspection. Though it may seem obvious, most homeowners fail to do this.
When your utilities are off, an inspector could attribute it as not operating.
- Provide access to everything
There is a lot of stuff that inspectors look out for. So, make sure nothing is blocking the electric panel or the crawl spaces, and the garage and attics are all accessible.
- Plug in all appliances
The inspector will assume unplugged appliances are not functional. If your appliances are working, make sure to plug them all in when the inspector arrives.
With all these in check, rest assured your home inspection will run smoothly, and your chances of getting a good buyer are almost guaranteed.
