Important News and Insights about Atlanta's Real Estate Market

Things You Should Do Before The Home Inspection

  1. Replace The Filters:  Dirty filters on a heating and air system are an instant indication that the system needs maintenance.  This is something you should be doing routinely anyway, to improve the air quality within your home, and to extend the life of your heating and air system.  Change those filters before the inspector calls it out on the report.
  2. Replace Spent Light Bulbs:  Is it a spent bulb, or an electrical problem?  When a light fixture is not coming on or is only partially lit, the home inspector is likely to note that it is a "possible spent bulb" but he or she is also likely to note that the buyer should have a qualified, licensed electrician evaluate to make sure.  Avoid this by replacing any bulbs that may not be working.
  3. Clean Blocked Gutters:  Blocked gutters are one of the most common sources of water intrusion.  If an inspector sees that your gutters are overflowing, he or she is obligated to intensify the search for possible damage.  Not that they don't look already, but you probably don't want to give them additional reason for concern. 
  4. Clean the House for a "Showing":  Home inspectors are people too.  Plus, a clean house is USUALLY a better-maintained house. 
  5. Turn the Water Heater Temperature to Manufacturer's Guidelines:  Some of us like a scalding hot shower.  However, having the temperature set over manufacturer's guidelines is a "no-no" that home inspectors will have to call out on the report.  It's a simple fix, so do it before the inspection.

When it comes to home inspections, less is more!  A few simple items, done in advance of the inspection, will result in a shorter inspection report, which makes buyers (and Sellers, too!) more confident in the transaction.

Happy Selling.
