Know Your Home

For many people, a home inspection is only an important part of the closing process of a real estate deal.
But the truth is, the buyer should keep their inspection report in a place that he can refer to.

Once you have been in the home for a while, you might be planning on making some changes. Most people do the standard “refresh” of paint and carpet or flooring. But it’s always smart to have a quick review of the things that the home inspector may have suggested in their report as items that should be addressed in the near future.
Items such as
• reverse polarity in electrical
• troublesome cracks in parts of the foundation, or uneven sidewalks
• Soil buildup around the foundation

There are many items that should be addressed and maintained. When the heavy rains come, and you’ve built a basement renovation, you’ll be so glad you checked your report that mentioned a few things that seemed minor at the time.

Remember to check to find a home inspector or ask first “Do you belong to HIABC?”

Know Your Home


Homeowners should be aware that inspectors cannot move personal effects during the course of an inspection. Here are a few suggestions to prepare a home for an inspection:

Remove any furniture and stored material from around access panels, crawl spaces, attic hatches, electrical panel boxes, furnaces, hot water tanks and water shut-offs.

If the access panel to the crawl space or attic is in a closet, you might want to remove the clothes from that closet or cover the clothes with a sheet, in order to protect them from bits of insulation and debris that might fall down in the process of removing the access panel.

Over friendly or unfriendly dogs or other family pets can complicate the inspection process and are best keep either away from the house or in a contained space during the period of an inspection.
