Pass Your Home Inspection with This Free Guide

Profits from selling your Durham Region home can quickly dwindle if you miss these home inspection traps…

One of the most nerve-wracking steps in the process of selling a Durham Region home is getting a clean inspection report. Industry experts have identified more than 33 physical problems that home inspectors will nail you on. We cover the top 11 home inspection traps to avoid in order to pass your inspection.

Even with new homes and well-maintained older homes, there are common issues that inspectors identify, which will force you to make costly repairs. This can delay closing a deal or even kill a promising offer if the homebuyer doesn’t want to be faced with extensive issues.

That’s why it’s important for you to know, weeks before you list your home, what to expect and how to get your Durham Region home as ready as possible.

Before listing your home you should…

Be sure to do a  pre-inspection yourself, keeping an eye out for common issues that are notorious for critique by the inspector. You don’t have to be a contractor or a handyman, you just have to know what things are most likely to cost you money.

In a special report called, “11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection,” the Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty of Ontario Inc. team outlines what you should look for and what it might cost to get it fixed.

You’ll find out how to check your home for:

  • Defective plumbing
  • A damp or wet basement
  • Roof problems
  • Deteriorating masonry work
  • Structural or foundation problems
  • And more…

Neglecting to fix problems costs you in repairs, and possibly even in the final sale price if a buyer negotiates you down because of poor inspection notes. Plus, it’s critical that you take note of and fix costly problems weeks before you list!
