The Inspection-ready Home

An inspection-ready home presents itself best for evaluation and helps the entire process go more smoothly. Pillar To Post Home Inspectors recommends sellers take these steps prior to the home inspection:
ACCESS
  • Provide keys to any locked areas.
  • Allow access to the attic, basement or crawlspace, garage, and yard.
  • Make sure our inspector will be able to readily access:
  • The electrical panel
  • Main water shutoff
  • Water heater
  • Furnace
  • Central AC unit
  • Gas meter
GENERAL INFORMATION
  • Sellers should plan to be away from the home for the duration of the inspection, which is typically 2-1/2 to 3 hours. It may take longer if the home is very old or very large.
  • Store small valuables and medications out of sight and in a safe location or consider taking these items with them when they leave.
  • Remove pets or keep them safely crated.
  • Provide copies of records/warranties for any major improvements – furnace, roof, etc. to show when the work was completed.
