Just like you, buyers are lazy when it comes to having to take on large projects within the home. They want to be able to move in and be happy with what they’ve bought.
If your property is in need of work, such as the following, you should tackle them before the potential buyers get to see it, so that all they will picture is moving day, not all the work they’d have to put into the home.
- Old, dated wallpaper
Cracked or peeling paint
Cracked, broken, or missing tiles
Other similar projects
Most people will want all of the important work done before they move in. They don’t want to have to worry about tearing the place apart as soon as they get their stuff inside.
They want to buy a home, and not remain unsettled for a long time while they bring the place to the level that they consider to be livable.
With each change that they prospective buyer calculates that they’d have to make to your home; they’ll become just that much more concerned. When it comes to selling your home, you need to make it your priority to assuage these concerns.
