Do I have to be out of my house during the home inspection?

Good information to consider!  You wouldn't want it as a buyer.

Question from a real estate client???
Do I (the seller) have to be out of the house during the home inspection?
That is a great question, and one many sellers have for me just after their home comes under contract…
The home inspection is done within the first 5 days after the home comes under contract…
It is the buyer’s chance to go through the home with a licensed home inspector, and look for any potential issues that may be unnoticeable to the untrained eye…
Potential issues can range from big and small…
Issues with outlets, roofs, the heating and air conditioning systems, problems in the attic, and foundational issues are just some of the many issues that the home inspector will be looking for…
During the home inspection, which typically takes about two hours, depending on the size of the home of course, the seller should not be there…
It would make the process much more uncomfortable for everyone, and could be interruptive to the whole inspection…
Have a great day!!!
