When it comes to selling your home, it is always a good idea to have a home inspection first before you put your home on the market. Here’s why:
- When was the last time you went into your attic? Poor ventilation in your attic can lead to mold issues.
- What about your crawlspace? Dry-rot can lead to big issues if not replaced.
- Check to make sure your hot water heater has the required earthquake straps.
- Curb appeal is a MUST to get potential buyers interested in your home. Investing in curb appeal is one of the most important things you can start with. Make your house stand out from all the rest!
- Cleaning your gutters is one of the items an appraiser will call for to have done.
- Has your roof been cleaned recently? There should not be any moss growing there.
