                                                                                                                                                Sellers can speed their home inspection by following these suggestions. The inspection will go smoother, with fewer concerns to delay closing.

                                                                                                                                                1. Confirm that water, electric and gas service are on, with gas pilot lights burning.
                                                                                                                                                2. Ensure pets won't hinder the inspection. Ideally, they should be removed from premises or secured outside. Tell your agent about any pets at home.
                                                                                                                                                3. Replace burned out bulbs to avoid a "Light is inoperable" report that may suggest an electrical problem.
                                                                                                                                                4. Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and replace dead batteries.
                                                                                                                                                5. Clean or replace dirty HVAC air filters. They should fit securely.

                                                                                                                                                9. Trim tree limbs to 10' from the roof and shrubs from the house to allow access.
