When you’re selling your home in North Florida, whether it’s in Lake City or elsewhere, the buyer whose offer you accept will most likely hire a home inspector. Before the inspector arrives, you’ll want to fix these three issues.
Selling Your Home? Fix These Three Things Before an Inspection
Check out these three issues you’ll need to fix before a home inspector arrives:
- Gutters and roofing
- Leaky faucets
Here’s a closer look at each.
Gutters and Roofing
Gutters and roofing can be major issues for buyers, which means if there’s something wrong with yours, it’s best to have repairs done before you list your house. The best way to kick things off is to get a free roof inspection from a local company you can trust – and your real estate agent can help you find someone reputable in town.
Manicure your yard (or hire someone to do it for you until your home sells). Make sure the gates and doors work properly outside, and touch up any patchy paint work that needs attention.
Tighten faucets that drip on your own – but if you have bigger plumbing issues, like leaks under the sink, consider bringing in a professional to handle them. That way, plumbing won’t be a problem on your inspection report.
