#5 Seller Mistake ~ Unwilling to Make Repairs Prior to Listing
No seller wants to spend a few thousand dollars making repairs to a house you are about to sell. Agents understand that. They also understand that few buyers want to do a bunch of work immediately upon moving in, or even before they can move in.
One of your objectives to selling your home is to make it as appealing as possible to as wide of an audience as possible. If the seller is unwilling to make repairs, and a buyer doesn’t want to, you’ve shrunk the pool of potential buyers for your home.
Some sellers may want to offer the buyer a credit at closing for certain repairs. Most people are going to want them fixed prior, or not even see or know about the problem, because you have taken care of it prior to listing.
