Improve your chances of enticing buyers by addressing any necessary repairs before putting your home on the market. Buyers don’t usually want to take a chance on a home that has a long list of needed repairs. Even if you think they may not notice, most buyers obtain an inspection before closing. Inspections will reveal areas of concern, so it’s best to be proactive.

To get maximum dollar for your home, repair a leaking or failing roof, windows and plumbing within the home before pictures are taken for the listing. Replace or repair peeling and damaged siding to improve the desirability of the exterior. Help buyers focus on the amazing features of your home by making necessary repairs before they see it.
