1. YOUR BASEMENT NEEDS TO BE DRY

A damp or musty basement can be a deal breaker for some buyers.

2. YOUR ROOF SHOULD  BE IN GOOD SHAPE

Damaged and worn out shingles can result in a leak into the home.

3. YOUR PLUMBING MUST IN GOOD REPAIR

If you have any leaks or clogs in your plumbing you need to get it fixed before the inspection takes place. Water that has an odor or an off color might indicate unusual levels of minerals or other issues.

4. CHECK FOR DEFICIENCIES IN YOUR ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

If you have performed any repairs or installations of an electrical nature you need to have a licensed electrician review them to be sure they are up to code. Other things to keep in mind include location of outlets and whether plugs are grounded or not.

5. MAKE SURE YOUR FURNACE IS UP TO PAR

 Check to make sure the heat exchanger is in good shape and free of rust.  

6. CHECK OUT THE MASONARY WORK

If you have a chimney or other masonry work make sure it is in good shape. Masonry work with cracked or crumbling cement can lead to leaks or the collapse of the chimney.

7. IS YOUR ATTIC DRY?

Too much dampness in the attic can be a sign of slipshod ventilation or insulation problems. This can lead to mold in the attic which can cause severe health issues for the occupants of the home.

8. LOOK AT YOUR WOOD WORK

The frames of the doors and windows can sometimes develop a condition known as dry rot. The wood will began to crumble and disin even though it appears to be dry and if the wood is wet you can develop other forms of rot.
