Repair anything that is broken – Prior to inspection, make sure that you fix anything that is broken or in disrepair. When buyers see that something needs repair, the first thing that comes to their mind is the cost. This usually causes them to negotiate a lower price to accommodate the work they will have to do when they move in.
Planning to sell your house may require a lot of preparation. You need to be ready for a possible home inspection that your potential buyer will likely request. Making sure that your house is in good shape will enable you to pass the inspection and close the deal. If you do not prepare your home, and the inspector reports problems, you will either end up selling your house at a lower negotiated price or have no buyers at all.
