The Importance of Inspection and Repairs Prior to Selling Your Home

There are three main reasons you want to conduct a home inspection and make the proper repairs before putting your house on the market.


Did you know that faulty wiring is one of the most common defects found in a home inspection? Accordingly to home expert, Rick Yerger, faulty electrical wiring can cause a house fire and any exposed electrical wires are susceptible to physical damage and can lead to wreaking havoc. If this is a problem in your home, you want to make sure it’s resolved prior to selling.


Conduction a termite inspection is crucial in the home selling process. Why? Because it validates the condition of the home structure. When you call for a termite inspection, the exterminators will check these 5 things:

  1. Wood Damage
  2. Wood in Your Landscape
  3. Mud in Construction Joints
  4. Mud Tubes
  5. Evidence of Swarmers

If any of these areas are discovered to be problematic, it could compromise the structure of your home and you need to be prepared to correct the possible damages.

Health and Safety Concerns

This area of the inspection includes checking for water damage to make sure there is no mold, verify gas meter and supply tap, authenticate insulation, etc. You want to be sure that the home you’re putting on the market has a healthy environment and is safe to live in.
