It occurs to me that using the Checklist For Preventing Water Losses, mentioned in the previous post, would be a good idea for sellers — this is the type of maintenance that impresses buyers and home inspectors!
So, if you haven’t done this for peace-of-mind while you live in your home, do it for the next owner. It could benefit your pocket as well.
In today’s market, homes aren’t selling “as-is” as frequently. Now we’re seeing home inspections returning with laundry lists of repairs that the buyer wishes done in order to proceed with the purchase of the home. Good maintenance can and will reduce the number of items on the list.
