    Start by reviewing your sale contract and any specific requirements related to the final inspection. Understand what the purchasers will be looking for, and make a checklist of items that need attention.
  2. Maintain the Property
    Maintain the property in the condition that was agreed upon during the sale. Ensure that any repairs or agreed-upon changes have been made. A well-kept property is more likely to pass the inspection without issues.
  3. Leave Important Documentation
    Leave behind any relevant documentation, such as instruction manuals for appliances, warranty information, and a list of trusted service providers. This can help ease the transition for the new homeowners.
