20 Steps in selling your own home - FSBO - Step 3
Fix it early ... Make all necessary repairs and improvements before you begin to advertise your property.
An item which is $10 may cost you $100 or more if the buyer receives a quote from a contractor. By doing so, you save money and bring the value of your home up with each item that is no longer a problem or at least you will make your home more appealing to more buyers.
Remember in today's market buyers are looking for a "deal", for an attractive home where they can just move in and live. Most buyers are not interested in making repairs which should have been completed by a seller.
