Few things can derail your plans to sell your Santa Cruz home like failing a home inspection. Most states require that a home inspection be completed and turned over to the buyer before the contract is finalized.
To prepare for your Santa Cruz home inspection, you’ll want to thoroughly clean your home. It’s also a good idea to examine all the appliances to make sure they're in good working condition.
What Will the Inspector Do?
You may be surprised to learn that the inspector will turn on the stove and test the dishwasher and garbage disposal. They'll make sure the furnace and air conditioning systems work. You’ll want to clear out the area around the furnace and hot water heater because the inspector will need a few feet of space towork in.
