Things to do Before Placing Your Home on the Market: Home Inspections

Copyright : Ian Allenden RF123.comWe have all heard about home inspection and what these seemingly small inspections can reveal. Yet, most people don’t know what these home inspections should include. You may be surveying your property without professional help, or you may be thinking about professional home inspection – regardless of your plan, you should take care of these things before placing your home on the market.

Take Care Of The Siding
A long list of things found in your home will be highlighted in the final home inspection report. Experienced inspectors will do all the hard work, but many of them will miss the siding. Keep in mind that it’s not easy to detect a damaged siding and having a siding like this can lead to serious issues for any home. Don’t leave this potential issue under the carpet – ask your home inspector to check these things thoroughly so you can avoid any problems in the future.

A Worn Out Roof
The roof is the part of the house that people usually neglect. However, the roof can cause a lot of problems if it is worn out. It is not enough to check the roof from the ground. Most home inspectors won’t be able to go up and inspect it closely, but you can always hire a specialized roof inspector. Ask them to analyze the condition and note any problems. By taking care of these things before you start selling your home, you can rest assured that you will get a fair price.

HVAC Problems
Most houses today have HVAC systems that are regulating the cooling, heating, and ventilation. Unfortunately, only a small number of home inspectors are taking enough time to check the systems thoroughly. Once again, the best solution is to get in touch with a professional in this field and test the HVAC system.

A home inspection is a complex thing that includes a wide array of activities. It seems that many home inspectors are skipping some seemingly unimportant things that may affect your home’s final price in the end. If you're planning to put your home on the market, I'd be happy to guide you with a free market evaluation and resale consultation.
