When you're considering selling your home, it’s never too early to start planning what you need to do to get it into it’s best condition for the market. From improving your curb appeal to doing necessary repairs or renovations, your Realtor® can guide you through what areas to focus on that will make the most difference to buyers. Also, once you accept an offer on your home, you don't want to allow basic inspection issues to become a problem. There is much you can do in advance to head off problems that could jeopardize your deal. From high radon levels, peeling paint, and broken glass, to missing handrails, outdated smoke detectors or problems with your septic systems, being aware of these issues before the sale will save you not only time and money, but perhaps prevent the whole deal from derailing.
