Pillar to Post Home Inspector-Prepared to Sell!

By
Home Inspector with Pillar to Post

I have been a fulltime inspector for almost five years, and have performed over 1300 inspections.

Some easy things to do pior to the inspection:

!. Clean gutters and downspouts- extend downspouts to drain away from the house.

2. Fix all leaks; replace O-rings in washerless faucets. Secure toilets if loose.

3.Test all GFCI receptacles and breakers. Label breakers in panel box.

4. Clear stored items to provide easy access to the attic, basement, or crawlspaces.

5.Service heating & air conditioning- chage filters.

6. Check that all windows and doors open and close correctly. Replace damaged weather strip.

Go to Pillar to Post.com for additonal ideas to make the home inspection go smoothly. Comprehensive inspections help the transaction go forward!

John,

This is very useful information. I would add from my casual inspecting in California that an important item is to make sure the soil around the house is at least six inches beneath the wood siding. You can combine any needed re-grading with putting in a few blooming annuals to spruce up the curb appeal.
