Charlotte Home Sellers - 9 Things to Check before a Home Inspection

Charlotte Home Sellers - 9 Things to Check before a Home Inspection 

 

Selling your Charlotte home can be a stressful time - there is so much to think about; keeping the home clean, heading out at a moment’s notice to accommodate last minute showings - not to mention planning a move. It’s natural to feel overwhelmed. 

 

Then you get that great Offer and enter into Escrow. You’re relieved until you realize the home inspection is coming up next. Even a home meticulously maintained can have hidden issues. The good news is that you can prepare for the home inspection and make sure you pass with flying colors. 

 

Charlotte home seller advice

 

Here are 9 Things to Check before a Home Inspection 

 

  1. List My Charlotte HomeDoors, windows, cabinets and drawers – check that they slide smoothly
  2. Run water in sinks, tubs and showers – snake any that drain slowly
  3. Evidence of water leaks – Garage ceiling, under sinks, around water heaters, etc.
  4. GFIs – check your local code and install GFI plugs where required
  5. Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors must be in working order
  6. Gutters and Roof – replace any missing roof tiles and clean gutters
  7. HVAC – Consider a HVAC servicing to replace filters, check for problems & repair as needed
  8. Water Heater – is it properly strapped and vented?
  9. Deferred maintenance – anything that has been neglected should be addressed before the home inspection 

 

 

The best defense is a good offense. This is true in home inspections too! The best way to ensure you have a great home inspection is to have a pre-listing home inspection. It could be the best couple hundred dollars you can spend – uncover the issues before the buyer does.
