3. Don’t forget to clean.
Whether you plan on being there for the inspection or not, make sure to give your home a good deep cleaning and straighten up well before inspection time. It doesn’t mean you have to scrub your floors on your hands and knees – but – a clean clutter free home is so much easier to inspect. By standards of practice as well as liability restraints – home inspectors are not allowed to move items around to conduct inspections. If clutter or personal items are blocking areas – a inspector may have to come back to finish and that might result in un-necessary expense for you as a seller.
