I hope you had a fantastic weekend. I want to touch on the topic of repairs. Other words like fix, mend and restore can also be used, but I like repair.
During the consultation I make recommendations for preparing the property for sale. In a nutshell the consult includes advice on cleaning, painting, and what should be packed up or removed. I also discuss repairs.
Repairs should never be overlooked. They should always be fixed. If the homeowner cannot fix the repair than hire a professional who can. It may cost some money but will help in the long run.
I met up with a friend of mine on the weekend. She is in her late twenties and is a first time home buyer. She (along with her boyfriend) has begun her search for a property. They do not want a fixer upper. She is looking for a property that is move in ready and repair free.
Seeing repairs that have been left unfinished is a turn off. Buyers wonder “what else needs to be fixed”.
Sellers take the time and effort to do it right! Fix what needs to be fixed.
