Preparing for a Real Estate Home Inspection

Offer Access to the Home – Be prepared to allow the home inspector access as needed to perform the necessary assessment of the home and property. Get rid of excess clutter that may impact access in areas such as attics, basements, storage rooms, etc.

Inspect for Insects – Be sure to address any known bug, spider, or wasp problems prior to the home inspection. Seeing some of these insects is normal in the SC Low Country, but it can still be an issue for some potential buyers.   

Check for Water Leaks- Signs of water leaks or water damage are definitely on the top of the list for the home inspector. Be prepared and check for water issues near sinks and faucets, the base of toilets, bathtubs and showers. Be sure to also look at appliances such as dishwashers and refrigerators as well. Check walls, ceilings, and floors for tell-tale signs of water damage such as warping, staining, and sagging.

Keep Home Cleaned and Maintained – Seeing a well-kept and maintained home sends a good message to the home inspector and keeps all red flags at bay. Things like a fresh filter in the HVAC system, functioning toilets, and replacing burned-out light bulbs indicate that the home is taken care of.

Rely on Your Bluffton Realtor – Working with an experienced Realtor not only greatly reduces your stress, but also ensures you have an experienced person on your side that knows what to expect during Bluffton and Hilton Head Island home inspections. Rely on your Bluffton Realtor to guide you through the process.
