Home inspectors generally arrive early to any property he or she is required to inspect, sometimes up to 45-minutes prior to appointment time. This gives the inspector adequate time to get any equipment set up that allows them to carry out a professional home inspection. As a homeowner, you expect and prepare for an early knock at the door from your selected qualified home inspector; by knowing this you can avoid opening the door with your bed hair all over the place, and yawning with eyes half shut.

If you know when the home inspector is coming, make sure that your home is clutter free. All crawl spaces and your should be easily accessible. What you don’t want is the home inspector having to move and rearrange personal belongings around in order to carry out their home inspection service.

Try to make sure your home is clean, clutter-free, and remember, if your home does have defects, don’t purposely hide them out of sight. Anything that is hidden will more than likely be found and any discovery of “purposely” hidden issues only makes you, the homeowner, feel embarrassed.

The best advice for anyone selling a home would be to get a pre-listing inspection carried out. Having a pre-listing inspection will give you the information that you need to get any repairs fixed to help increase the chance of selling your home, as well as, helping the process go as smoothly as possible.
