Whether you are a home seller or buyer, below are several ways to prepare thoroughly for a home inspection:

Conduct a thorough clean-up of the house

Whether you are preparing for a home inspection in Palm Coast or not, this is something every homeowner needs to do regularly. It's a straightforward and easy task to carry out, and it's the very first step to preparing for a home inspection. How neat your home looks, will determine how the inspectors will see it, so try to make an excellent impression of your home by keeping it tidy. A clean house decides how much you care for your home and it will make a good impact on the inspectors. Also, try as much as possible not to overlook even the smallest details when cleaning your house.

Be Punctual for the inspection

Most home inspectors in Palm Coast are always early, as they like to get on with their jobs and also observe the state of your home in the morning. It's best to prepare for the home inspection in Palm Coast much earlier before time. Also, consider your exterior into consideration, cause that's where the inspectors will most likely start their observations. Feedbacks from both home sellers and owners have shown that they have been surprised by inspectors arriving on their properties much earlier.

Make sure the utilities are well connected

Stove, dishwasher, washing machine, air conditioner, etc. the home inspector will test all these and much more, so make sure the utilities are correctly connected so you won't attract unnecessary suspicion. If all these utilities tested aren't in good working condition, the inspector will need to inspect your home another day, which will ultimately delay the selling and purchase of the house; also it will reflect poorly on the property. Most home inspectors in Palm Coast will probably charge another inspection fee, and that will cost more.

Don't crowd up the furnace, AC and water heater

Make sure there's easy access for the home inspector in Palm Coast to check out the stove, heaters, and AC, so remove all boxes, books and any item that may cause a hindrance. The inspector will need to be close to this item to inspect them thoroughly. Most inspectors usually will not clear up the items blocking easy access for them to examine the furnace but will instead suggest a specialist who will find much more things wrong with the home compared to a general inspector.

Provide easy access to Attic, Basement, and Garage.

Make sure the basement, attic, and garage are well managed, and thoroughly cleaned up. Also, you should provide easy access to the basement and make sure the inspector doesn't encounter any hindrance when going up the attic and down the basement. You should make sure to check for leakages in the basement. Make sure the basement is free of rodents and insects, so as not to piss off the inspector.

Provide all necessary repair documents.

No matter how small the repair work might be, you should ensure to provide all the invoice to the repairs should the home inspector demand it. Whether a newly upgraded electrical appliance, or a freshly installed dishwasher, or repair pipes, you should make sure all the paperwork are available. The person purchasing the property will have assurance knowing these items are thoroughly inspected again.
