PREPPING FOR YOUR HOME INSPECTION

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

You’re ready to list your house on the market. With the rapid pace at which houses in Austin and surrounding areas are selling, it is likely that offers will come in fast. What can you do to ensure a smooth sale amid the chaos of bidding wars and multiple showings? You and your agent will have to decide on the details, but here are some tips to prepare your home for an inspection.

Pre-inspection is a good idea. Although not the final inspection, the report can help buyers feel confident from the beginning. This report can alert you to major issues (particularly those related to your plumbing, electrical, or HVAC systems). It is unlikely that you will need to make any major changes to your home in order to sell. However, knowing what to expect during the process can be comforting.

Get ready to sell your home. This list is not exhaustive. However, most of these items will be addressed in the listing and showing process. These are some things to keep in mind as you get closer to the inspection.

  1. Allow easy access to key areas such the crawl space, basement, and water heater.
  2. Keep a tidy home. Although this may be done for the purpose of showing, a tidy home can give you an idea of how the house is in general.
  3. Verify operation and alignment of your toilets, doors, windows, and cabinets.
  4. To save time, replace any blown bulbs. Your inspector will need to either note the problem (which could be a concern) or look for any faulty wiring. You can avoid the hassle by making sure your lights work properly.
  5. Get new air filters, especially in Texas! The HVAC system is an important component of the inspection. Regular replacement of the air filters can improve the efficiency and lifespan of your cooling system. This will make your inspection run smoothly.
