What to do before your home inspection

If a home inspection is in your near future, you may be curious as to what you should do to prepare.  General upkeep and maintenance is important in having your inspection go off without a hitch, but there may be more to it than you think.  Check all the items off this list and you’re likely to have less things come back as “problematic” upon inspection!


Spread Kindness

Random acts of kindness are just that, random.  But, in the hustle and bustle of life, oftentimes these simple actions are pushed to the back-burner.  However, everyone- from mere strangers to family members- could greatly benefit from a little compassion.  Use these simple ideas to make someone’s day a little brighter!
