Late spring and early summer is the best time to sell your home and if you are considering putting your home on the market you’ll likely have to consider a home inspection.
Home inspectors are generally looking for large issues like problems with HVAC systems, plumbing, electrical, and overall structural issues.
However, there are a couple of things you can do to make the process easier:
- Clear clutter. An inspector can only check things they can readily access. Make the process smoother by removing items blocking foundation walls, electrical outlets, and attic access.
- Clean up water leaks and spills as soon as possible. Water damages floors, walls, and ceilings and contributes to mold growth. If you have water in your home, call us to get it cleaned up immediately.
- Have your air ducts and vents cleaned. We recommend doing this on an annual basis, but we can also clean before your list your home.
Before you even get to the home inspection stage you’ll need to prepare your home for potential buyers by staging it. This means paying attention to curb appeal (think planting flowers and keeping the lawn mowed) and deep cleaning your home. ServiceMaster by Ayotte can be your partner in this stage by cleaning not only the floors and surfaces, but also the curtains and upholstery.
