Be Proactive with your Home Maintenance!

Unfortunately, many sellers wait until they put their homes on the market to take a serious look at the outside condition of their home.  I guess it's the "out of sight, out of mind" mindset.  

As part of your inside Spring cleaning routine, do your own DIY Home Inspection for the condition of the outside of the home. 

Georgia has no set standards for a professional home inspector, but you will find that across the board, the condition of the exterior wood around the doors and windows will be an item the home inspector will be looking at.  Most of the home inspectors in this area, do the outside of the home while they are waiting for the buyer and agent to arrive.  The home inspector's eyes are fresh and hone in on the exterior wood rot around door and windows. 

You may also want to look for any evidence of termites in the exposed, un-finished areas of the basement.  You want to make sure you have no wood in the garage or up against the outside of the home.  This would be a good time to be sure you have no wood to dirt from the back deck.  These are a concern on most home inspections as well.
