One of the best investments a homebuyer can make is a  home inspection. A thorough inspection will help remove doubt whether or not a home is a good buy. It will shed light on any issues and reveal the true condition of a home. It is important for buyers to understand that many common home issues are tucked away (plumbing, HVAC, mold, etc.). With this, here are a few tips on how to prepare for a home inspection. 

Have repair documents available

You want to be sure that you have your repair documentation and invoices in order for when the home inspector comes. If you have had any home remodeling done, such as a new electrical or HVAC system, you want to have the paperwork available to show to the inspector and potential buyers.

Be ready to leave 

In most cases, it is in the best interest of the owner to be away during the home inspection. This is because it is common for the buyer to tag along with the home inspector during the inspection. Your presence can make buyers feel uncomfortable. If at all possible, arrange it so you away for a few hours during the home inspection. 

Provide clear access points

You want to be sure that the home inspector has clear access to your basement, attic, and exterior inspection points. With this, be sure that you clear all items like storage bins are out of the way. In the case of outside, you want to clear items like trashcans, debris, and anything inhibiting someone from accessing the foundation.
