The Problem With Deferring Maintenance

Deferring maintenance can be expensive since many minor issues have the potential to grow into major problems that can no longer be ignored. These needed repairs can really take their toll when it comes time to sell.  

Homes that obviously need work turn off potential buyers, and will prompt other to write offers well under market value. Less visible issues that identified during a home inspection can be deal breakers if sellers don’t agree to address them prior to closing. In extreme cases, lenders may also refuse to fund a loan based on the condition of a home.
If your home could use some preventative maintenance feel free to ask your real estate professional to recommend a good service provider.
