Yes! We're so excited to have this video out for all our realtors and sellers who ask us how they can "ace" their property's home inspection. While there's not actually an ace or fail stamp we put on a report, your home will be more attractive to potential buyers the less deficiencies that are listed. As a seller, you want to present your home in the best possible light. A lot of deficiencies on a home inspection report could make the buyer assume that the property hasn't been well maintained. But there are actually many quick fixes or adjustments that can be easily done as you're preparing for the inspection. So here's 13 things you can do as a seller to decrease the number of deficiencies that show up on the home inspection report!
Did you catch the part where just changing a lightbulb or two could improve your inspection report? That's something you could easily do on your own, along with changing out air filters. We also go over a few other small repairs and maintenance items that may cost you a little bit to get handled, but may help you get the price your home deserves! One of my favorite tips is to get an HVAC person to come give your A/C a test if you have any doubts about its performance. Buyers get nervous when they see any deficiency at all listed about the A/C - rightly so since repair or replacement could mean a hefty bill down the road. But It may be just an inexpensive fix for you to have your service person just top off the coolant or perform some other small repair.
