Selling Highlands NC Real Estate, Prepare for Home Inspection
Always prepare for the home inspection when selling Highlands NC real estate. Not every seller understands the need to be prepared. However, when unprepared for a home inspection there is a possibility that it will need to be canceled or rescheduled. A home inspector needs to be able to access the systems and spaces inside and outside of the home. Additionally, it is not a home inspector’s job to clean a home and create accessibility.
How to prepare for a Highlands NC home inspection
- make the fuse box accessible
- clear out the cabinets under sinks so plumbing is visible
- clear out closets
- make sure crawl spaces and utility rooms are easy to find and access
- clear debris and equipment away from the perimeter of your home
- make sure the garage is accessible
Home inspections are visual
The most important thing is that a home inspector can see a home. While the above list may seem logical, many homes are cluttered and therefore cumbersome to inspect. Every system in a home should be easy to access. If a home inspector can’t see or access important spaces then an accurate report will be harder to obtain. Take the time to clean and declutter a Highlands NC home and a thorough home inspection can be delivered.
