What some people don’t think about is that they need to get an inspection before they sell their house as well. If you have leftover junk or mess in your home, it can be difficult to show potential buyers that your property is pristine. In this blog post, learn more about what is considered junk and why it’s important to clean up before selling or closing on your property!
There are many different kinds of junk, such as:
- Old toys all over the living room.
- Clutter or dirty clothes everywhere.
- Unused items still in boxes.
- Outdated electronics like TVs and computers lying around.
The Condition Assessment Report (CAR) is the standard report performed by appraisers when assessing the condition of a property prior to its sale or closing on behalf of their clients. It provides an overview of every part of your home that can be seen during a typical real estate visit, as well as an opinion about whether there have been any significant changes from before so you’ll know what questions to ask about repairs and improvements that may have been done.
The report is just a typical formality and most people don’t pay it too much attention, but it’s really important that you go over your CAR to see whether there are any issues with the property. If there are some problems then they will be documented in the report so you’ll know what needs to be fixed or replaced before selling. It also helps to determine how much money can be put into improvements after closing for upgrades or renovations which can raise the value of the home significantly!
When selling your home, it’s a good idea to hire professional help to organize and clean up beforehand. Some real estate brokers even offer their cleaning services as an extra service to help boost the value of your property during the sale. Make sure you keep things neat and tidy so that there are no surprises in the CAR report when you sell, and follow up with any items that may need improvement before listing!

If you decide to go with professional organizers or cleaning services, find out what kind of results they produce in other clients’ houses and whether they are insured for damage done to your property if something were to happen.
