We’ve all heard the expression “you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression” and because of this I strongly recommend that home sellers inspect their property “through a buyer’s eyes” prior to putting their home on the market in order to create a to-do list of items that need attending to. It’s common for people to get so wrapped up in their day-to-day lives that they often overlook or put off things that need to be repaired or replaced.
A regular feature on this site is what I’ll call the “Home Seller Do’s and Don’ts” series. Since many of us learn best when things are presented visually, at least one photo will be included with each item in the Home Seller Do’s and Don’ts posts. I think this will prove to be an interesting, if not funny, exercise.
