If you are planning to sell your home in the near future, your home is going to need to pass an inspection prior to the closing. Preparing to sell your home is a big task, and surprise issues make the process more complicated and stressful. That’s why it is well worth your time and money to hire a home inspector in advance of listing your home. By doing so, you’ll know of any necessary repairs that could not only delay the closing of your home, they might even cause you to lose the sale altogether. To begin, be sure you hire a licensed home inspector to complete the inspection.

A thorough inspection will include an inspection of the garage door. The safety items your inspector will specifically be checking are the balance of the garage door, the force of the garage door opener, the use of a GFCI outlet for your garage door opener, and ensuring the sensors are no higher than 6” from the ground, all of which you can easily check yourself via garage door maintenance in Katy, TX.

If you discover there are issues with any of these garage door inspection points, give Ohana a call to come fix it for you. For the garage door balance and the force, most often it only requires an adjustment, but occasionally it may be the sign of a bigger problem. The only way to know for sure is to have a professional garage door repairman out to take a look; like the guys at Ohana Garage Doors.

If you discover your garage door opener is not plugged into a GFCI outlet, then you will need to make that change. If you are handy, you can tackle that yourself, or you can call the helpful folks at Electric City to take care of that for you. In fact, they can check off many of the repairs you might need to make prior to listing or selling your home.

After making any necessary repairs in your garage, and in your home, you’ll be ready to finally list your home, which most often involves the use of a realtor.
