For home sellers, accepting a homebuyer's offer represents one of many steps you'll need to complete to finalize your home sale. In fact, accepting a homebuyer's proposal provides no guarantees, and a homebuyer likely will conduct a home inspection that may determine whether he or she moves forward with a home purchase.

Ultimately, a home inspection may make or break your home sale. But if you spend some time preparing for a home inspection, you can improve your chances of accelerating the home selling process.

Here are three tips to help home sellers get ready for a home inspection.

1. Clean Up Your Home's Interior and Exterior

A home inspector will investigate every nook and cranny of your house. As such, you'll want to ensure your residence dazzles when a home inspector visits, as any flaw could damage your chances of finalizing your home sale.

Conduct an extensive clean-up of your house's interior and exterior – you'll be happy you did. With a neat, tidy home, you'll be able to improve your chances of making a positive impression on a home inspector.

Plus, evaluating your residence before a home inspection ensures you can identify and address any minor flaws before the evaluation. That way, you'll be able to eliminate any problems and improve your chances of a fast, seamless home inspection that won't jeopardize your home sale.

2. Ensure All Areas of Your Home Are Easily Accessible

A home inspector will want to examine your hot water heater, your home's siding and more, so you'll want to make every area of your home easily accessible to a home inspector to guarantee he or she can perform the assessment properly.

Although a home inspector may uncover a variety of problems with your residence, the assessment represents a valuable learning opportunity for both you and the homebuyer. Thus, if all areas of your home are easily accessible, you may be able to make the most of this opportunity, learn about hidden problems with your residence and work to resolve these issues accordingly.

3. Consult with Your Real Estate Agent

Let's face it – a home inspection can be stressful, particularly for home sellers who want to finalize a home sale as soon as possible. Luckily, your real estate agent can help you minimize stress and ensure you know exactly what to expect before, during and after a home inspection.

Your real estate agent can answer any of your home inspection questions and ensure you are fully prepared for the assessment. In addition, your real estate agent will collaborate with you and the homebuyer. And if problems are discovered during a home inspection, your real estate agent will help you determine the best course of action.

When it comes to a home inspection, there is no need to worry. If you use the aforementioned tips to prepare for a home inspection, you'll be able to improve your chances of speeding up the home selling process.

When you sell something, you expect to make a profit on the sale. It doesn’t quite always work this way when you sell a home. While you may count the sale of your home as “all profit,” there will be some significant upfront costs that you’ll incur when it comes to selling your home. Planning the sale of your home can help you to manage these expenses and sell your home faster.  


Upfront Costs


The first costs that you will incur when you’re selling a home will usually be of the cosmetic and repair nature. These will include things like painting, small fixes, and 


Paint Your Home


Although you may love the bright green living room, another homebuyer may not. It would be worth your investment to stage your home well. An important renovation might include painting the rooms on the inside of your home neutral colors. Refreshing the trim on your windows also helps to make the interior of your home shine. You can paint around the windows for a quick update to the inside of your home. Paint can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to over $1,000.  


Clean Everywhere


If you wash your windows, it could add some value to your home and help it sell faster. When the windows sparkle, they will undoubtedly make a very positive impact on the buyer. Get rid of dust, dirt and grime, especially from the obvious spaces in your home.  


Landscaping


The outside of your home is also very important. Do some quick yard maintenance for a better look for the exterior of your home. Rake up the leaves. Trim the bushes. Mow the lawn. Make your home appear as pristine as possible. 


Repairs


Anything that needs to be repaired in the home should be. This will help you out during the inspection period. Things like leaky sinks, cracks in the walls, and holes in the roof are obvious and should be addressed before your home even goes on the market.                  


Stage Your Home


Take the time to make sure all of your furniture is arranged in a neat manner. The rugs should be streamlined with the chairs and tables. If things look a little cramped in any room, either take a piece of furniture out or move the room around in order to make it appear more spacious. 


Keep Your Utilities Running


If you need to move out before you get your home sold, make sure that you leave your utilities on. This way, there’s lights and heat available for potential buyers as they walk through the home to discover if they can see themselves living there.
