Home Inspection Preparation Checklist


  • Change your furnace filter.
  • Check your HRV/air exchange filters to ensure they are clean (if applicable).
  • Make sure the attic access is easily accessible. For example, if your attic access is in a closet, please clear out the top shelf of the closet.
  • If it's winter, have walkways shoveled, if it's summer yard is tidy and law mowed.
  • Have your home "show ready" for the inspector as it makes a good impression. Remember that the buyers and the buyers' agent will be coming back to see the house again. They want to feel assured that they are buying a well presented and clean home that has been cared for.
  • Have all downspouts in the down position and draining away from the home.
  • Have keys for the detached garage left out and easily identifiable for the inspector if the keys are not in the lockbox (if applicable).
  • Pick up any dog "droppings" from the yard (if applicable).
  • Replace any burnt out light bulbs.
  • Have your washer and dryer empty. Some inspectors will run the rinse cycle and test the dryer to ensure it is working.
  • Ensure there is easy access to all rooms, electrical panels, the furnace, water heater etc.
