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

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.
