Home Inspection Problems to Avoid

Home Inspection Problems to Avoid

Once you find a home of your liking, you should take the next step forward, ensuring the home is in tHome Inspection Problems to Avoidop condition with a good inspection. Once a seller or buyer have decided on a price, the inspection will allow the buyer know the home is worth its money both inside and outside. There is never a complete guarantee that a home inspection will find a home in perfect order, so you must do your best to put a home in such if you ever hope to succeed in a successful sale. The following tips will point out issues that need to be fixed as soon as possible before a sale:

  • Roof leaks are a major issue that has to be addressed right away in case you have a sale on your hands. A home inspector will rarely go to the roof of a home to check for possible leaks. Inspectors will usually check out the roof using binoculars or view the roofing from below. Rarely will they ever actually climb on top of the roof to look for missing shingles or damaged roofing. You should make sure you hire a roofing contractor for a full evaluation if you're buying a home or to fix your roof if you're selling.
  • Appliances are also an important part of a home, especially if they happen to be part of what makes the sale so desirable. You should make sure all the appliances in a home being sold wit h it are working right. They should be checked by a technician so they can see whether everything is in order before a sale.
  • Another thing that needs to be checked out is the air conditioning and heating system of a home, as they are the most crucial and important thing that most people will look at. This is something that needs to be done, as the cold winter months and scorching hot summer days will be when the system shines, but a faulty one will not help the sale at all.
  • The windows and siding need to be addressed as well, as most contracts address things like plumbing and electrical wiring, often paying less attention to those. You will need to make sure they are repaired if you want them to add to the overall value of the sale you're planning.
  • Another thing that deserves special attention is the floor. Most often inspections will check out the most significant and obvious signs of wear and tear, but you should make sure you check whether you have anything going on under the carpet. Its a necessary thing, since moldy carpets or similar issues that happen to hide behind the paneling could quickly turn a sale into a big no-no.

Property Cleaning Tips for a Spring Sale

Now thaProperty Cleaning Tips for a Spring Salet spring has arrive with its lovely colors and fresh green looks, we can find a good deal of potential buyers for our property. This is an excellent season for staging and marketing purposes, as it shows a home in its best condition. To do that however, you will first need to work on it by cleaning and preparing it for a sale. The following tips will give you the basics of what you can do to improve its overall appeal:

  • Cleaning stainless steel surfaces in a home can be done with a few small touches, making it look clean and shiny once more. You can use a light mist on it or a wax-based spray about once a week. Make sure you never go too far with the waxing or you may make it far too greasy to work with. Wipe it with a nice, lint-free cloth and never use the oil to keep fingerprints away. You should also avoid using bleach-based cleaners once you put the wax on, as it will dry and lose its luster as a result. Avoid using anything abrasive a well, not even the mildest of products as you may scratch the surface by mistake.
  • The next step on your list should be organizing your closet right. This will take some time, but you will need to get rid of accessories, clothes and other things that need not be there. This will give you a chance to get the rest of your things in storage or you can alternately prepare them for a spring sale in your yard or garage. This is a necessary step as you will have to eventually move out, plus it will help with the presentation of your property.
  • If you need to remove odors and stains, then you will need to work on them in a very specific way. Blotting as much as you can from a spot where the mess happened as soon as you can. While you work on upholstery, make sure you put a lining of plastic between the fabric and the cushion so you won't push it down into the cushion itself. Flush and clean it with cold water as much as you need to, then blot and flush again. Cold water will keep the stains from setting, unlike hot water. You can also use a wet/dry vacuum cleaner or a spot cleaner. If you have any smell that remains, then you can take care of it by using a 50/50 mix of water and white vinegar to disperse the smell. The scent of vinegar will disappear after a few hours.
  • If you have any painted walls to clean, you will benefit greatly from dealing with them with a simply sponge and some water. If that doesn't work out as well, then you can dip the sponge or rag into dishwashing liquid and water. If the stains on the wall are persistent, then you can do even better with a few soap drops on top of the stain itself. You should do your best to avoid using strong cleaners as they may contain powerful solvents that could affect the surface of the paint. Rinse well when you're done scrubbing.
