Preparing in advance for a buyer’s inspection

inspection 

Most home buyers are paying an inspector to find issues in the house they are buying and expect to at least have the seller respond positively to the important items on their inspection list.  Of course, how much the seller offers to address depends on a number of issues beyond the actual ‘imperfections’ that the inspection has uncovered.

While a seller often gets a much bigger return on investment by improving kitchens and bathrooms, it is advisable to keep up with routine maintenance to address minor problems before they escalate into major inspection issues.
Here are some of the most common issues.
1) Furnace, Hot Water Heater.
2) Masonry around front steps and walkways
3) Recaulk around exterior doors and windows
4) Fireplace and chimney cleaned and checked by a pro
5) Make sure gutters and leaders are working & depositing water far away from the foundation of the home.
6) Address any leaking pipes
7) Knob & Tube electric needs to be addressed
8) And the most important, remove buried oil tank from the ground
