10 Ways to Not Sell Your House
When it comes to selling a home, these unforgivable no-no's top the charts. Use this checklist to make sure you won't lose potential buyers on account of an unkempt yard or those dirty dishes.
Leave As Is
Let the buyer fix the hole in the wall and the broken light fixture. Who knows? They may want to choose their own!
Or… be prepared to lose a sale over the poor condition of your house. Everything in your home must be in good working order before you put it on the market. This process can take a couple of months, but you need to fix all broken fixtures, change all burned-out light bulbs, repair any flaws in the walls, and refresh any paint that needs it.
The same goes for outdated or worn wallpaper. Some things do not get better with age, and nothing dates a room more than '80s wallpaper.
