Written by LRG intern, Savannah Wafford 

Selling your home can already be tricky - the unknown terms, the procedures, the open houses- can all be overwhelming at times. Teaming up with a real estate agent can alleviate a lot of the stress associated with selling your home, however one area that many home sellers do not feel prepared for is the home inspection.

Since it is not customary for the seller to be present during the inspection this can be a nerve wrecking experience. These tips and tricks should put you at ease and give you confidence about your upcoming home inspection. 

1. Clean Your Home

At little tidying up around the house can make a big difference! This will help speed up the inspection process and make the buyer more comfortable. 

2. Repair, Replace & Remove 

The home inspector will check to make sure that all the kitchen appliances are responsive. It is best to check your appliances and remove any items that might be covering or blocking them. Also for a cleaner inspection report it is best to replace your furnace filter, missing light bulbs and smoke detector batteries. If you haven the time you can also make minor repairs.
