Preparing A Home For The Home Inspection

Here are some tips for preparing the home for the home inspection. Proper preparation will make it much easier (and quicker) for the home inspector to do his job while inspecting a home. The faster and easier it is to perform the home inspection, the smoother it is on everyone involved.


Please remove all padlocks from garage doors, gates, electrical panels, bulkheads… etc. The home inspector is going to want to open / gain access to these areas, and if we have to chase down a key or combination code, it will unnecessarily add time to the inspection.Freed 2 pics 010

Window Locks

Additional security locks are a great idea, but please remove them before your home inspection. The home inspector will want to test the operation of all windows.Freed 2 pics 022

Personal Property

All personal property blocking areas of interest should be moved. This includes: clothing / towels hanging on doors; personal property piled in a tub or shower; personal property in front of a door or water heater; or clothing / vehicles underneath an attic access. We do go into the attic and we wouldn’t want to take a chance in dropping insulation on any personal items.Anderson pics 005


If there is a pool present, it should be filled with water and operational for the inspection. If there is no filler / leveling valve present, please manually fill the pool to make sure the water level has not evaporated to the point where the pool cannot be operated.Cruz pics 048
