6. I’m selling my house and the potential purchaser has arranged a home inspection. What should I do in preparation?

Home inspectors can only look at places to which they have access. Make sure no large areas are blocked by furniture or packing boxes, make sure the attic is accessible and all doors are unlocked. Make sure all utilities are turned on and that pilot lights are lit. Ensure that all appliances such as ovens, dishwashers, clothes washers and dryers have power.
