You should take note of these things to avoid issues on your home inspection before you are selling the building. 

CHECK FOR DEFICIENCIES IN YOUR ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

It is necessary that a qualified electrician repair, install, and review your electrical system to ensure that it is in good shape. The location of wall receptacles needs to be checked to ensure safety and whether they are grounded or not.

YOUR ROOF NEEDS TO BE IN GOOD SHAPE

Home inspectors should check for damaged or worn-out shingles that can cause future problems. Old water spots and signs of leaks will discourage buyers, so make sure it is noted that the roof has already been repaired.

YOUR BASEMENT NEEDS TO BE DRY

It is a deal-breaker for some buyers to purchase a home with a damp basement. Before the inspection, your basement needs to be dry and not show any signs of mold issues. Buyers would not want to get a house with flooding or mold problems.

IS YOUR ATTIC DRY?

Slipshod ventilation or insulation issues are identified by dampness in the attic. Moist can lead to molds in the attic, and you have to find the source and immediately repair it. It needs to be documented that the attic is free from any issues, and repairs were done already.
