Seller’s Guide to Preparing Sandpiper Lakeland FL for Home Inspection

Seller’s Guide to Preparing Sandpiper Lakeland FL for Home Inspection

 

As today’s buyers are getting savvier, they hire a professional home inspector to inspect their perspective home before closing the deal. This is to protect their interest of getting a “great” home within their budget. There's no hiding a home inspector's findings. The best way to head off potential problems is to prepare your home before you even list it on the market.


Here are some tips on preparing your home for the home inspection:

 

  1. Basement. Make sure to point drainage downspouts away from the foundation because buyers and home inspectors will surely look closely at the walls and floors for patches of mildew and signs of dampness. Moisture deteriorates building materials and attracts insects.

  2. Roof. This is one of the major parts of the house, it secures people from heat and cold so it makes sense that the inspector will pay particular attention to it. If the elements underneath the shingles are moist or rotted, you can bet repairs will be requested.

  3. Plumbing. It is better to fix leaks in the faucets and toilets before the inspection takes place. You should also check the septic system.

  4. Electrical Systems. The electrical panel and circuit breaker configuration should be adequate. The inspector will test receptacles with ground fault circuit interrupters in bathrooms and kitchens.

  5. Others. Check the heating and cooling systems, smoke detectors and all of the appliances that will remain with the house.

 

Keep your Sandpiper Lakeland FL home for sale clean and do everything to get it in good condition. But don't be discouraged if the inspection report contains few negative remarks. Even though preparing for a home inspection requires a lot of work and may costs you money, remember that a faster sale and a higher price will be worth it.
