How to Be Prepared For The Home Inspection When Selling a House

Preparadness For The Home Inspection

When you are selling a house there is a lot of stress involved. It starts by interviewing and hiring a real estate agent who will most likely give you some home selling advice. Some of what he or she says will probably pertain to straintening up your place and de-cluttering – Good advice by the way.

If you are lucky there will be interest right out of the gate after listing for sale. You may find yourself negotiating a sale with the terms you expected. At this point you may be breathing a sigh of relief. Not so fast!
