Many home sellers make the mistake of ignoring certain repair or maintenance items in the hope that a potential buyer will either not notice, or if they do, telling them that they (the seller) will repair or replace the item. Most buyers do not have vision. They are not able to look at a room that needs paint and capret and imagine it fresh and attractive. Telling them that something will be cleaned, or repaired may work with some, but the majority will not be able to envision the house after the changes have been made and will scratch your house from their list. Keep in mind, that the condition of your home and the amount of repairs or maintenance that needs to be done can help the competition sell their house faster!
