Before putting your home on the market, it’s important to take a step back and imagine how buyers will feel when they tour it. Unless you are listing a fixer-upper, buyers are looking for as close to “move-in ready” as possible. They want to walk in and feel like the home has been well-maintained and won’t be a money pit once they’ve signed on the dotted line.
You can make potential buyers feel confident in your home by making necessary home repairs before listing it.
It may seem easier to just list it “as-is” and let the buyers deal with the repairs afterwards, but in a competitive market they are likely to just pass on your home and go to the next one on the block that is already fixed.
