Speed up your home sale by preparing your home ahead of time using the following tips:

  1. Confirm that the water, electrical and gas services are turned on.
  2. Make sure your pets won't hinder the home inspection. Ideally, they should be removed from the premises or secured outside. Tell your agent about any pets at home.
  3. Replace all burned-out light bulbs.
  4. Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and replace any dead batteries.
  5. Clean and/or replace dirty HVAC filters, and make sure they fit securely.
  6. Remove stored items such as wood and debris from around the foundation.
  7. Remove items that may be blocking access to HVAC equipment, electrical panels, water heater, attic and crawlspace.
  8. Unlock any locked areas that the home inspector must access, such as the attic door or hatch, electrical service panel, door to the basement and any exterior gates.
  9. Trim tree limbs at least 10 feet away from the roof. Trim shrubs that are close to the home.
  10. Repair/replace any broken or missing items such as door knobs, locks or latches, window panes, screens, gutters or downspouts or chimney caps.
