How to Prepare for a Home Inspection

Getting ready to sell or purchase your home.  Well, here are some helpful tips suggested by Christopher Kelly when it comes to your home inspection. 

Home inspections are a chance for a homeowner or buyer to learn of any potential problems a home may have. These inspections are often considered a crucial part of the home-selling process. Make sure any inspections on your home go smoothly with these tips.

Turn on the lights.

Turning on the lights gives you a chance to make sure none of your light bulbs are burnt out, thereby avoiding concerns over whether or not those sockets are working. It also makes it easier for the inspector to see where they’re going and to assess your home’s condition more accurately.

Tidy up.

Making sure your house is neat and tidy will ensure the home inspector can quickly and safely make their inspection. Because the home inspector will be evaluating the entire home, remember to tidy up the basement, attic, storage areas, and utilities in addition to the main living areas.

Finish your to-do list.

Most homes have a few minor repairs that need fixing - leaky faucets, running toilets, wobbly banisters, etc. Now is a great time to go ahead and fix those so that they don’t show up on your home’s inspection report!

Build Your Dream Home On This Land!

If you could build your dream home, what would it look like? What architectural style would it be? What materials would you use to build it? How many rooms would it have? How many floors? What would the color of your front door be? Building a home from the ground up can be perceived as a challenge for some. For others however, it's an amazing opportunity to be creative and build a home that is personalized to their liking and needs.  

 

Price Reduction

$57,000

201-80 Highland Tr, Wolfeboro, NH 

MLS#: 4668303

 

In addition to creative freedom, there are other benefits of building your own home:

You Are the First Owner

There's nothing like the look and smell of something that's brand new. Building your own home allows you to be first person to walk its floors, step on its stairs, paint its walls and create memories in its rooms. 

Everything is New 

You won't have to worry about old electrical wiring, an aging water heater, old foundation issues, bad plumbing or a leaking roof. Every aspect of your new home is brand new. Therefore, you won't have to worry about any repair costs for quite sometime! 

Customization

Have you always wanted a library in the den? Perhaps you've always wanted a customized staircase? Maybe an indoor rock climbing course in your living room? The possibilities are truly endless. Besides knowing that only your home has certain features, customizations are also wonderful because they can be a great selling point if you ever choose to move.

Energy Efficient 

You can use energy efficient materials when building a home that can save you money in some instances, offer tax credits. Popular energy efficient materials include recycled steel, spray foam insulation and insulating concrete forms. HVAC systems are also a great energy efficient feature to add to any home. The best part is that you won't have to move heavy air conditions every year and find storage for them in the winter.
